Serena Williams won Wimbledon women singles title on Saturday defeated a dogged Angelique Kerber 7-5 6-3 in a high-quality Wimbledon final. "When you enter the doubles draw, you dream of winning". But her hopes of meeting Venus for the fifth time in a Wimbledon final and ninth time at a major were shattered when fourth seed Angelique Kerber, the Australian Open champion, saw off the 36-year-old 6-4, 6-4.
"I learned that you can't win everything, even though I try really hard".
Cherry on the cake for Serena Williams as she conquered another magnificent Wimbledon campaign by teaming up with sister Venus.
"I was trying everything, but she deserved it today".
"I played my best so what else could I do?"
She said: "For me, it's just a great feeling to be in my second Grand Slam final". Williams said. "Who put that stipulation on it?" I have reached my second Grand Slam final in this year and it was a really wonderful final. Gets really blurry after that.
The end came quickly when Kerber was broken for the second time in the match in the seventh game of the second set. "It " s never easy out there, every point you have to fight for", she said. I think she should go on to win more.
Wimbledon commentator and former Wimbledon champ Lindsay Davenport says she believes Williams showed true grit in being able to hold her nerve through this year's tournament.
Actually, I felt a little more stress in the first set, Williams said.
"I think sometime after the French Open, [coach] Patrick [Mouratoglou] and I were talking, strategising".
As Beyoncé took some took time out from the U.K leg of her European Tour to support her "Sorry" co- star, she joined husband JAY Z and apparently arrived by helicopter to make the match and cheer on Williams.
"Players used to retire not just in their early 30s, in their late 20s, but now technology has done a lot.Even from the shoes helping out your knees, being out to stay their longer and learning what to do not to get injured".
Once again armed with the belief that made her such a destructible force on court, she has gone on to win nine grand slam titles under Mouratoglou's guidance - which is no mean feat considering she is now aged 34. I feel like when youre younger youre obviously super excited.
