Serena Williams fires warning to rivals following Wimbledon loss

Duchesses make first joint appearance as Meghan cheers friend Serena at Wimbledon

Serena Williams Defeated At Wimbledon: Upset Again By Angelique Kerber In Final

Not even the presence of close friend Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, in the royal box alongisde Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, could help her, as Kerber won in just over an hour.

The tennis ace was beaten by Germany's Angelique Kerber in the Wimbledon women's final on Saturday (14Jul18), and now her man has showered her with high praise after watching the US sportswoman and entrepreneur compete following a year away from tennis to become a mum.

And Williams' husband, Alexis Ohanian, shared a story putting into perspective just how much Williams had come back from.

Williams gave birth only 10½ months ago, then was treated for blood clots.

Kerber's triumph was confirmed in the next rally and she fell to the floor in a heap of overwhelming emotion when Williams hit the net.

"In fact, I've probably forgotten about it", she added to a disbelieving audience. "We just wanted her to survive - 10 months later, she's in the #Wimbledon final", the message began.

Kerber, who won her third Grand Slam title, moved up six places to world number four, with French Open victor Simona Halep of Romania retaining the top ranking despite her third-round exit at Wimbledon. Williams was mostly her own undoing, too: She was responsible for the final's initial six unforced errors. "I'm literally just getting started". "All right, next time when I play her or play someone like her, I'll be more ready". "I think her serve can still improve and the more she feels success with her offensive game, she will use that as well".

"The standard of first-class cricket in England is very high and I hope that I can make a contribution to Somerset winning matches", Azhar told his new county's website. She played unbelievable today.

Her energy and consistency forced the 30-year-old American into long rallies, which in the end had just one outcome - the 11th seed German winning majority.

"Being here and having an opportunity to play is super great for me".

"Now she's supporting me in a different role". I lost count after like four surgeries because I was in so many surgeries.

Kerber's coach, Wim Fissette, also believes Williams will soon equal Court's record. "I go for holidays proud of the things that I'm doing".

Kerber avenged her defeat against Williams in the 2016 Wimbledon title match, overwhelming the seven-time champion with a stunning 65-minute upset on Centre Court.
