Serena Williams reaches 10th Wimbledon final with straight sets win

Goerges

She's also a little more preoccupied with spending time with her 10-month-old baby girl, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

That would make her the first mother to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since Evonne Goolagong in 1980.

Serena Williams will face Germany's Angelique Kerber for an eighth Wimbledon singles title after both won their semi-finals in straight sets.

Williams was forced to stay in bed for six weeks and could barely walk as she recovered from the traumatic experience.

"We've always had a wonderful friendship. for a couple years she [has come] out to Wimbledon, has supported me", Williams said.

"I can't speak for Serena but I can speak for being a champion on some level, and this isn't a human rights issue, there should be a right".

"In a way, it's by far the toughest year for me, but in a way it's by far the best".

"I don't know if it's been the toughest, because I have Olympia". I'm enjoying every moment. Yes, Wimbledon is a Slam she has won seven times and one where she hasn't dropped a match since 2014. "If Serena Williams enters the 2018 U.S. Open, the USTA will recognize her accomplishments, recognize her return to the workplace and will seed her, regardless of what her ranking is".


But Serena had already made her mark on the tournament this year before she ever stepped foot on Centre Court. Williams won that for a second consecutive Wimbledon title, then sat out the grass-court tournament past year while pregnant, part of a 16-month gap between majors.

She arrives in her 30th Grand Slam final - her 10th at Wimbledon on a 20-match winning run on the lawns of south-west London. Win or lose, she was defying odds and outperforming even the most optimistic predictions for her first year back on tour.

Ranked 183 in the world before the Championships began, her performances have rendered the debate and controversy prior to the tournament about whether she should be seeded - she was eventually granted a discretionary seeding of 25 - absurd. I can't say it's not.

"When she played against me today, I mean, I'm hitting the ball much harder than her, and she didn't have this opportunity to go for the shots", Ostapenko said after the 6-3, 6-3 loss.

"Being here and having an opportunity to play is super great for me".

However she has put in just a handful of public appearances since giving birth to Prince Louis in April and has not been seen since she watched her husband play at the polo last month.

"To be perfectly honest, I haven't thought about that this tournament. Not even once actually", said Serena, who will be cheered on from the Royal Box by her friend the Duchess of Sussex.

"It does surprise me looking at what she is doing now, but when you think about what she has done throughout her career you can't be too surprised. It's just a number". "Maybe one or two rounds but I got news for ya, the rest of the field is more anxious about her being about not seeded than she is". "I have to be ready for the match of my life". She's won 89 percent of her service games and 80 percent of points on first serve.
