Wimbledon 2018: Serena Williams Says 'It's Crazy' After Entering 10th Final

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. I think that's what I was doing in the past, I was limiting myself.

"It wasn't as tight as I was used to", she said last month.

'This was not inevitable for me, I had a really hard pregnancy and I had to have multiple surgeries, I nearly didn't make it.

Williams will equal Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 Slam titles if she stages a repeat of the 2016 final, when she defeated Kerber.

Her attendance was hinted at by close pal Serena Williams, who when asked by an on-court reporter whether Meghan would attend, Serena suggested she may on one condition - that she is "winning". "I'm just enjoying every moment". Against the No.25 seed, Goerges would need to raise the tempo, to move her opponent outside her comfort zone but the 23 time Slam champion confirmed to be the most complete player ever. She's been excellent this Wimbledon, although it wasn't easy late against the stubborn Ostapenko. She won the grass-court tournament the last two times she played it, in 2015 and 2016, before missing it a year ago while pregnant.

'I remember when I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal to be in a Wimbledon final'. The All England Club amended the rules and seeded her, instead of following the ranking list that doesn't take into account players' taking a break for maternity leave.

Moral of the story: No matter how big and bad you think you are, do not run up on an National Football League player. Police say words were exchanged before Ragin struck Jones with a closed fist, causing a cut to Jones' face.

Kerber is a former No. 1 and a two-time major champion, both coming in 2016 at the Australian Open and US Open.

"Whatever happens, honestly it's an incredible effort from me", the 36-year-old Williams said, "and good motivation to keep going for the rest of my career".

That title pushed her past Steffi Graf's record of 22 majors in the half-century professional era; Court won some of her Slams during the amateur era.

For Meghan, her attendance comes days after her whistle stop trip to Dublin, which saw the 36-year-old mark her first tour outside the United Kingdom with new husband Prince Harry. There was one brief blip to come: Williams got broken for the only time while serving for the match at 5-3.

The first two points played by Ostapenko - who won the French Open in 2017 and crashed out in the first round the following year - were emblematic of the match. "In a way, it's by far the toughest, but in a way it's by far the best".
