Considering that the American suffered a hard childbirth and needed several surgeries to remove blood clots after an emergency C-section, it was a huge achievement to contest her 10th Wimbledon final.

Serena Williams will be holding a trophy again soon-she's got the greatest one waiting at home for her. The American was mostly her own undoing, too: She was responsible for the final's initial six unforced errors.

Despite the loss, she as well as her hubby assured fans that she is 'just getting started'. Mommy has to do this.' I cried a little bit not as much as I thought I would.

Williams played doubles with her sister Venus Williams at the Fed Cup in February.

Angelique Kerber ripped up the script when she stunned Serena Williams 6-3 6-3 to win her first Wimbledon title on Saturday (July 14).

The 30-year-old - the first German singles champion here since her idol Steffi Graf in 1996 - said: "I was quite nervous before the match". And when she became No 1 as a 28-year-old in 2016 she was the oldest women to claim the top ranking for the first time.

"No doubt, it's just she needs more time", two-time U.S. Open victor Tracy Austin said.

"It was definitely a different game [than I've seen this tournament], but at times she hit the ball really hard".

Within an hour of her defeat, Williams had turned her focus to just that, explaining, "I'm already deciphering what I need to improve on, what I need to do, what I did wrong, why I did it wrong, how I can do better - that whole madness that goes on in my mind".

"I just feel like to tell all the mums, like I had such a long struggle to come back and it was really hard and honestly I feel like if I can do it, they can do it". "Every year for a couple years she comes out to Wimbledon and has supported me".

"I think these two weeks have really showed me that I can compete".

Williams, 36, was the first mother to reach the final since Australian Evonne Goolagong triumphed 38 years ago. "In the end, time and nature won, but didn't Williams give them a run for their money?" 'How am I ever going to get back in shape? As she put it this week: "I lost count after, like, four surgeries". I wanted to say that so women out there know that's not true. But I was trying to tell myself, "Go out there and play your best match", because I know that against Serena I have to play my best tennis, especially in the important moments.
