Serena Williams makes Wimbledon final, 10 months after childbirth

Serena Williams makes Wimbledon final, 10 months after childbirth

This will be Williams' 10th final at the All England Club, according to Wimbledon, putting her in position to tie Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 Grand Slam titles.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion beat out German player, No. 13 seed Julia Goerges, Thursday in a 6-2, 6-4 victory to advance to the women's final.

Serena Williams says she will be "ready for the match of her life" when she faces Angelique Kerber in the Wimbledon final on Saturday. Ostapenko, whose explosive play took her to the French Open title next year, attempted to turn it around late in the second set.

Consecutive Ostapenko backhand errors handed 10th seed Kerber the first break and she proceeded to win seven of the next eight games basically by defending well and serving solidly to move into a 5-1 lead in the second set. "It came from the palace that she is coming on Saturday". "I had a hard birth, multiple surgeries, I nearly didn't make it".

The Duchess of Sussex will cheer on Serena Williams who has reached her 10th Wimbledon women's singles final - just ten months after almost dying during childbirth. Like, the last 16 months, I've played four tournaments, and was carrying another human half that time.

In a sense, Williams has been writing this narrative - rising up, overcoming, doing the impossible - since her father, Richard, took her and sister Venus to a dilapidated tennis court in Compton, Calif., put rackets in their hands and coached them, along with their mother, into champions.

Kylie Jenner says she’s removed all fillers from her lips
Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and makeup mogul Kylie Jenner has always had a complicated relationship with fillers. In May 2015, Jenner admitted after much speculation that she had enhanced her lips with temporary fillers.

'I remember when I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal to be in a Wimbledon final'. "I know that she is always pushing you to the limits". The two faced-off in the 2016 finals, where Williams was victorious. "I'm just enjoying every moment", Williams added. She waited 42 main draw appearances in a Grand Slam before reaching her maiden semifinalists, the fifth longest wait in the Open Era behind Likhovtseva (46), Vinci (44), Tauziat and Vesnina (42). She won here I don't know how many times. "We played here in the final the last time I played here in the final".

Williams duly raced to victory, delighting the packed Centre Court crowd with a display that confirms the 36-year-old is nearing her best form at the ideal moment.

On her third opportunity, the German drilled a winning return and raised her clenched fist into the clean Wimbledon sky.

"Oh, wow. I never thought about that".

"Whatever happens, honestly, it's an incredible effort from me and just good motivation to keep going for the rest of our career", Williams said.

"She's walking, maybe a little too fast", she said. "It's by far the toughest", she said.
