Wimbledon: Angelique Kerber stuns Serena Williams to claim the title

Seven-time champion Serena Williams takes on Angelique Kerber in the women's singles final of Wimbledon 2018 at the All England Tennis Club in London on Saturday, July 14.

When last seen at Wimbledon before this fortnight, in the 2016 final, Williams won her seventh title by defeating Kerber, 7-5, 6-3.

Serena Williams of the US returns a ball to Angelique Kerber of Germany during the women's singles final match at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, in London, July 14, 2018. Though the German wasn't the aggressor, she still out-attacked the greatest attacker in tennis. I am just me, and that's all I can be.

"You heard the crowd, they cheered for her start to finish", said former player Rene Stubbs.

'Today she played in the final at Wimbledon.

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.

"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. "She will want to win it really badly next year". "Obviously I can compete for the long run in a Grand Slam", she said.

Asked if she was a "supermom", Williams said she was "just me". It's also her first so I know she'll enjoy it.

Angelique Kerber has taken the first set 6-3 against Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final.

But, back to her best on the grass at Wimbledon, she needed only 11 winners and one ace to deny an oddly nervous Serena, who contributed to her own downfall with a whopping 24 unforced errors, compared to only five from Kerber. "Serena, you're a great, great person and a champion". And Kerber also credits Graf with giving her the mental belief in 2015 that she could be a grand slam victor. "Like I train in the morning and I spend the rest of the day with her, so I don't get to be with her the full day but a pretty good chunk out of the day".

"I look forward to continue to be out here and do what I do best".

The 36-year-old tennis player emotionally spoke out during an interview in front of the crowd, which included friend Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. Even she was surprised (pleasantly) with the seeding. Williams first came back by playing doubles with her older sister, Venus, for the U.S. Fed Cup team in February.

Returning to major action at the French Open in May, she was forced to pull out of her fourth round match due to a pectoral injury.
