Serena Williams in Wimbledon final: Twitter reacts to Kerber win

10 months after baby, Serena in Wimbledon final vs. Kerber

Germany´s Angelique Kerber poses with the winner´s trophy, the Venus Rosewater Dish, after her women´s singles final victory over USA player Serena Williams on the twelfth day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships.

Serving for the match, Kerber looked nervous as Williams got it back to 30-30 but she claimed victory when Williams netted, tumbling to the dusty baseline in relief before being warmly embraced by her opponent.

Williams admitted this time may be more hard, not least because she gave birth just 10 months ago, and has spoken about the tough delivery, which left her in hospital for six weeks. Over the course of 2016, the powerful lefty won two majors and played in the final of another, and rose to No. 1 in the world.

As the great took center court Saturday at Wimbledon, it was also somewhat of a star-studded affair as some notable friends were right there cheering her on from the sidelines, reports USA Today.

"I'm sure you'll win your next Grand Slam soon so congratulations for coming back". "It was such an fantastic tournament for me".

Angelique Kerber and Serena Williams at the end of their match. It's also her first so I know she'll enjoy it. "It would be really special to win", she said. When Serena walks onto Centre Court to face Angelique Kerber in Saturday's final, it will mark the culmination of an incredible journey that serves as a testimony to the 36-year-old's determination and belief.

Williams was in full agreement with the 30-year-old German and played down suggestions that it was disrespectful to the women's game.

Kerber is seeking to add a first Wimbledon title to her Australian and U.S. Open victories, which both came in 2016.

However, after a torrid 2017 which saw her regain and lose the world number one ranking, surrender her Australian Open title in the fourth round and US Open crown in the first round, Kerber and Beltz parted ways once again. Kerber, the 11th seed, proved to be more precise with her shots, helping her to make a crucial break in the middle of the second set.

"Angelique played really well", Williams said.

"I mean, even this week, I had a pain in my leg, and I went to the worst-case scenario: 'Oh, my God, I have a (pulmonary embolism) in my leg, '" Williams said.

Emotional after clinching her third Slam, the German bounded up into the players' box to embrace her family and coaching team.

She kept nagging away at Serena and induced more miscues from the American in the sixth game of the second set.

"Honestly, I just feel like it was a necessary evil", she said.
