Wimbledon 2018 | Serena "I can be a contender for Grand Slams"

After the match, during an interview, Serena got a bit emotional sharing that: 'It was such an awesome tournament for me.

Serena suffered complications, including a pulmonary embolism, that led to several surgeries, after giving birth to her daughter via C-section.

Wimbledon runner-up Serena Williams has responded to claims of sexism over scheduling of the women's final at Wimbledon. Our family knows she'll win many more trophies, too. "I'm literally just getting started, so I look forward to it", she added.

Alexis Ohanian, Williams' husband, said he "couldn't be more proud" in an Instagram post and that she was just getting started in her comeback. The ace tennis player was defeated by Angelique Kerber and this got the Duchess of Sussex emotional.

That was on display Saturday when she delivered a pair of down-the-line forehand passing winners to collect the last break she'd need, for a 4-2 edge in the second set. I think by losing, it will incentivize her even more to do well for the rest of the year, to get really fit and get back. Her agony only increased with a woeful volley that flew long to put Kerber within two points of the title. As the enormity of being a Wimbledon champion began to sink in, the German said it was the experience of 2017, when she lost her way and fell out of the top 20, that laid the bedrock of her return to the top. It was such an awesome tournament for me.

"I'd just like to tell all the mums, like, I had such a long struggle to come back, and it was really hard".

More than two hours later than originally scheduled, Williams and two-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber are under way in their final on Centre Court. It is obviously disappointing but I can not be disappointed.

The message came after Secretary of State Michael Pompeo returned from his third visit to North Korea . State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said the talks will take place Sunday and the U.S.

"I think I tried to enjoy every single moment now".

She never really gave Serena Williams much of a chance.

She was bidding to become only the fourth mum to win a Grand Slam title in the professional era and the first at Wimbledon since Evonne Goolagong beat Chris Evert in 1980.

"I'm sure you'll have your next grand slam title soon, congrats on you coming back", Kerber said.

Despite so much Grand Slam success, despite holding a 6-2 career edge against Kerber entering the day, Williams played tightly right from the outset.

"If you want to go back to work, and to me after becoming a mum, I feel like there's no pressure to do that because having a child is a completely full-time job".

The seven-time champion didn't secure her eighth win this time but she fought hard and hoped she'd have a happily ever ended after a tough year of health scares.
