Julia Goerges of Germany celebrates winning her Ladies' Singles Quarter Finals match against Kiki Bertens

The set looked to be following the same pattern as the first-Gorges had yet to earn a single break point in the entire match as she struggled to challenge Williams' serve-but the 29-year-old finally did so as Williams attempted to serve for the match. "These are the matches I was working for as a kid and to be in the final at Wimbledon is great". This is not inevitable for me, I had a really tough delivery and multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it to be honest.

Serena Williams was expecting to take "baby steps" on her return to tennis as a mum but after reaching the Wimbledon final wants to make giant strides. In the week leading up to her first-round match against Viktoriya Tomova, Williams posted a daily countdown on Instagram that included flashback Wimbledon photos and uplifting sentiments.

"I think she's the best player".

And the 30-year-old believes that it was her focus on that day that helped her to take a three-set win in Melbourne. By the time she flubbed a backhand while falling behind 5-1 in the second, she dropped her racket and screamed. "I've been learning a lot from her".

It worked. The 11th-seeded Kerber reached her second final at the All England Club by avoiding too many mistakes and using a seven-game run to seize control for a 6-3, 6-3 victory over the 12th-seeded Ostapenko on Thursday.




Williams whose daughter Olympia was delivered by an emergency caesarean section on September 1, will play in the final, two months after taking a front row seat at Meghan's wedding in Windsor.

Kate and Meghan will take to the royal box to watch the game, and it is sure to be a memorable experience for Meghan in particular, as she'll watch her close friend Serena Williams compete against Angelique Kerber for the chance to win a record-breaking 24th grand slam title.

"Honestly, I'm just me". "I have to be ready for the match of my life".

ESPN's Nicolas Pereira breaks down all the action from the women's semifinals, which saw Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber cruise into the Wimbledon final. That's what I'm doing. I was limiting myself. "I want to get as many as I can, starting with". Williams is not shy about saying she, for one, is impressed by this. "I love watching her play", she said of the tenacious world No.10, adding, "she was going through the draw very well".
