Serena into 10th Wimbledon 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 know that she is always pushing you to the limits to play your best tennis". She was not going to dictate or control much. This is not inevitable for me, I had a really tough delivery and multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it to be honest.

Last year, Williams took a break from competitive sport, announcing her pregnancy shortly after claiming her 23rd Grand Slam at the 2017 Australian Open. 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.

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

Even after all of that, even after more than a year away from the game, even in only the fourth tournament of her comeback, Williams showed she's still capable of dominance.

I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final.

"It is a completely new match", said Kerber, who failed to make a Grand Slam quarterfinal in 2017, won zero tournaments, fell from No. 1 to 21 and changed coaches.

Her situation drove the artist and poet into depression and resulted in criticism of China's human rights record. Berlin has been pushing China to let Liu leave the country following the death of her husband.

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, Williams will face another German, 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber, on Saturday.

"Whatever happens, honestly it's an incredible effort from me. and good motivation to keep going for the rest of my career", Williams added. The German spent 10 hours on court en route to her first Grand Slam semifinal, the most by over two hours of any player left in the draw, and hit a tournament-leading 44 aces surpassing the 300-ace threshold for the second consecutive season.

A jubilant Williams celebrated with relish as she closed out victory with a break of serve to love on the Goerges delivery.

Will Serena match Court's record?

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. "We saw that she improved every single match she's playing here".

It took Kerber two tries to serve out the victory, getting broken to 5-2. "For me, I only see joy out of it", Williams said with a smile.
