Williams and Kerber respond to claims of sexism over Wimbledon scheduling issues

It was a rematch of the 2016 final, which Williams won, but this time there was no doubt who was the better player and Kerber was able to celebrate her third grand slam title, becoming the first German singles champion at Wimbledon since Steffi Graf in 1996.

Angelique Kerber ripped up the script when she stunned Serena Williams 6-3 6-3 to win her first Wimbledon title on Saturday. Williams, just 10 months after giving birth, was on her sport's biggest stage, two sets away from winning the most prestigious title in tennis, when she got worked over by Angelique Kerber, 6-3, 6-3. It's obviously disappointing but I can't be disappointed, I have so much to look forward to, you know, I'm literally just getting started. I really can't describe it, to be honest.

"I took a giant step at Wimbledon". Williams responded, "Well, she's an incredible person, Angelique is, and she's a really good friend, so I'm really happy for it".

She lost against Germany's Angelique Kerber, 6-3, 6-3.

Kerber is just the second player to beat Serena in multiple Major finals after Venus (2001 US Open, 2008 Wimbledon). "But I just tried to improve my game, not think too much about the results". That was also the year that Kerber reached the Wimbledon final, losing to Williams in straight sets.

"I was really happy to get this far", Williams said.

Doctor not allowed to go with Nawaz Sharif
Earlier in the day Nawaz and Maryam boarded an Etihad flight from London which had a layover at Abu Dhabi Airport. A spokesman for Sharif's Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party confirmed they were arrested soon afterwards.

The German was soaking up pressure impressively, but Williams briefly bared her teeth and levelled the set when Kerber went long from the baseline.

In an interview with Vogue she talked plainly about her post-birth complications - the pulmonary embolisms, the rupture of her C-section wound, and a large hematoma in her abdomen that left her bedridden for six weeks - and the emotional surges of new motherhood while trying to reclaim her body after all the trauma.

"It's insane. I don't even know how to feel, you know, because literally, I didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", Williams said according to ESPN. Even though Williams came up short this time around, she'll certainly be back.

Also supporting Williams on Centre Court are golfer Tiger Woods, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, and Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour.

But now she is a royal, Meghan may have to be more discreet in her support although yesterday Serena made no secret of their friendship.

I felt like when I played on Court Three, for example, the shots I was hitting were more effective than the shots I was hitting today. And, ultimately, she collapsed on the grass court in jubilation after converting match point, caking dirt on her white dress. In fact, I've probably forget about it.
