Kerber beats Serena in Wimbledon final

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

During her career Kerber been encouraged by childhood idol Steffi Graf - the last German women's champion at Wimbledon in 1996 - and after a worrying dip in form in early 2015, turned to her compatriot for help.

If you watched the video, Serena's quote was a little different than what the @Wimbledon tweet reads.

"I had a really tough delivery and multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it, to be honest". I knew that I have to play my best tennis against a champion like Serena. "It's always an honour to share a court with her". And she totally did.

Angelique Kerber ripped up the script when she stunned Serena Williams 6-3 6-3 to win her first Wimbledon title on Saturday.

The women's final at Wimbledon is here and features an epic showdown between two former Grand Slam champions. Djokovic saved three set points before taking the third-set tiebreaker to establish a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (9) lead.

To be perfectly honest, I haven't thought about that this tournament.

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

"I'm just me, that's all I can be", Williams said about playing as a mother. Serena is playing only her fourth tournament since her daughter's arrival in September and is now just one win away from her eighth Wimbledon title.

Here's a closer look at the full outfit, but we'll continue to update as better photos come in.

Williams is a good friend of Meghan's and attended her wedding to Prince Harry.

"You're such an inspiration for everybody", Kerber said to Williams during her post-match interview Saturday.

After winning her semifinal against Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3, Kerber was asked what she sees across the net when she goes up against Williams.

Serena, who had played well up until this point, did not play a clean and effective match in the final. Two unforced errors helped Serena to break back at love and level at 2-2.

However, to numerous viewers, "all that she can be" is more than enough.

Now she's dropped another. The last two, the only ones with a legitimate chance to pull an upset, were the big-hitting, go-for-broke players Camila Giorgi and Julia Goerges.

Serving at 2-3 15-30 Williams popped up a half volley and Kerber rammed a victor past her and the 11th-seeded German repeated the trick with another sweet forehand to lead 4-2. She beat Williams in the Australian Open final that year, then won that year's US Open to briefly replace her at No. 1 in the rankings.

She then made the semis at Wimbledon in 2012, before having to wait until her 2016 Australian Open breakthrough to again get past the quarter-finals of a major.

Kerber showed to have a clear gameplan and the athletic brilliance to apply it with no sign of esitation.
