Wimbledon 2018 -- Angelique Kerber advances to final

  • Serena Williams in action at Wimbledon

While its the pair's first royal outing as a twosome, it won't be Meghan's first visit to Wimbledon: she previously attended the event in 2016 to cheer on her longtime friend, 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena. She had 14 winners and 10 unforced errors, while Kerber had three winners and - this was key - zero unforced errors. "I had a really tough delivery, and I had to have multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it, to be honest".

The German was unable to turn that break into anything resembling a comeback, however, as Williams quickly earned three match points in the following game and converted when Gorges sent a lob long. Goerges, who has never been so far into a Grand Slam, showed no sign of nerves at all, despite a break-point in her first service game.

"These are the matches I was working for as a young kid", Kerber said, "and to stand here again in the final at Wimbledon is great".

Responding to a question about her place in the Wimbledon hierarchy, the 23-time major victor said: "If there was a Wimbledon royalty, I would like to believe I would be Wimbledon royalty because I've done pretty well here in the past".


"I think I was not thinking too much about against who I'm playing", Kerber said this week. "We played here in the final the last time I played here in the final. I'm just enjoying every moment". "I've been learning a lot from her".

Two years ago, she faced Angelique Kerber in the final here at Wimbledon, which Williams won in straight sets.

Told that Kensington Palace had announced the Duchess would be there, Serena smiled and said: "There you go". "I think it will be just like the last final, it will be really good". "I have to be ready for the match of my life". After Kerber had her serve broken in the second set, Ostapenko powered back to take another game, but Kerber was able to complete the sweep when Ostapenko fired two serves back into the net and returned the final volley outside the lines on match point. "That's kind of what I'm doing". I was limiting myself.

However, unforced errors were her downfall and particularly costly given Williams' unerring accuracy and solid service games. "I know that she is always pushing you to the limits to play your best tennis". "So I'm not even there yet".
