If you watched the video, Serena's quote was a little different than what the @Wimbledon tweet reads. You're such an inspiration for all of us and I'm sure you will have your next grand slam title soon. I felt really glad that I posted that. "It's always an honour to share a court with her". To all the mum's out there, I was playing for you today and I tried'. And she totally did.

Serena Williams goes for her eighth Wimbledon title but her tilt at equalling Margaret Court's record 24-grand slams is likely to be delayed on Saturday afternoon. Williams returned to the tour in March, making limited appearances without much success.

She showed immediately why she's considered a superb returner.

It is the 30-year-old Kerber's third Grand Slam title. Knowing that no matter what happens, I have incredible support and unconditional love. "I was really happy to get this far", Williams said. I look forward to continuing to be out here and do what I do best. "I'm just me and that's all I can be", Serena said in response to a question about her being a Super-Mom.

'She's an incredible person and a really good friend so I'm really happy for here, so congrats again - it's unbelievable'. The second set was not much better as she made a series of freakish misses, including a drive volley in the final game. But she admitted there was some nervy moments, particularly at the end.

The reaction on social media was bipartisan in its criticism of Gohmert, who has been an avid supporter of Trump as president. Louie Gohmert , a Texas Republican, asked Strzok did he look into his "wife's eye and lie to her about Lisa Page ".

After taking the opening two points, she made four miscues in a row to get broken.

Kerber, who had won 11 career titles compared to Williams's 72, has not been afraid to make tough decisions.

This time around, the royal in-law opted for a long-sleeved number with a Little House on the Prairie influence. If Serena wins she'll be the fist mother to win the Grand Slam since Australian Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1980.

The seven-time champion has lost only one set en route to the final. Terrific playing from two legends of the court. "Kerber has been in good form in this tournament and needs to just stay calm and train her mind to face the pressure of a final against Serena", Becker wrote.

Williams broke back to level at 2-2 before Kerber re-established the advantage in the seventh game when the American hit long, and she took the set when Williams sent a backhand into the net.
