Kerber books place in a second Wimbledon final

Williams, seems to have taken the lead from her 10-month daughter in her approach to her comeback that has taken her to a 10th Wimbledon final. She'll play for her eighth singles title against Angelique Kerber. To hear people say, 'Oh, she's a favorite.' Like, the last 16 months, I've played in four tournaments, and was carrying another human half that time.

After hitting five aces with a serve that reached 119 miles per hour, delivering 16 winners to only seven unforced errors, and covering the court so well with speed and effort against Goerges, Williams will face another German, 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber, on Saturday.

Markle is good friends with Williams.

For Kerber it is a second opportunity to win Wimbledon in a final after she reached the showpiece match in 2016.

Kerber let 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko determine the outcome of almost every point.

By the end, Ostapenko had far more winners, 30-10, but also far more unforced errors, 36-7.

Williams v Kerber will be a rematch of the 2016 final. Williams won that one for a second consecutive title at the All England Club, before missing the grass-court tournament previous year while pregnant.

Prowling the baseline, Williams was aggressive and precise with her groundstrokes, keeping Goerges pinned back and working hard just to remain in rallies. But the American discovered to be human and double faulted as Goerges played her best shots of the match to create her first break point chances. Williams gave birth to a daughter in September.

Williams isn't taking her time at Wimbledon for granted, noting in a post-game interview that she "didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back".

"This is not inevitable for me". "I remember I couldn't even walk to my mail box, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final". Every year for a couple years she comes out to Wimbledon, has supported me. With the match at 2-2, Williams kicked off a streak of five consecutive games won.

On Saturday, Williams can match Australian Margaret Court's record 24 Grand Slam singles titles and move one shy of Martina Navratilova's record nine Wimbledons.

"There's word on the street", Williams said when asked if Meghan would attend the final.

This semi-final was billed as attack versus defence and it was the solid, reliable manner of Kerber that prevailed as she let an erratic Ostapenko, who was going for winners on nearly every shot, hand her a swathe of free points.

Five games in, Ostapenko led 3-2, and the numbers were still tilted toward her.

It took Kerber two tries to serve out the victory, getting broken to 5-2.
