Serena Williams climbs to No. 28 in rankings

Serena Williams's Husband Pays Tribute A

While insisting she was not disappointed with the result, the 37-year-old dedicated the inspiring run in the grass-court major to fellow mothers. There are 23 Grand Slam titles - one shy of current record-holder Margaret Court - to prove it.

Williams, meanwhile, put in a performance that was characterised by unforced errors as she failed to secure her 24th Grand Slam title. "She's an incredible person and a really good friend so I'm really happy for her".

"It's obviously disappointing but I can't be disappointed; I have so much to look forward to. For all the moms out there, I was playing for you today".

Winning Wimbledon with Olympia at the tournament with her was supposed to be the crowning glory of her return to the top.

The motivational message also saw Alexis remember the moment Serena gave birth to their first child together, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, in September a year ago.

When she eventually rose to her feet and dusted herself off as best she could, she and Williams met on Kerber's side of the net for an extended embrace and conversation.

But, despite a painful loss to German Angelique Kerber in Saturday's Wimbledon final, Williams's husband Alexis Ohanian said she was "just getting started".

This is becoming a Grand Slam tradition, this contrast of styles. She's the greatest of all time, both on and off the court.

"You know, I didn't know a couple of months ago where I was, where I would be, how I would do, how I would be able to come back". Even Zvonareva, who qualified for Wimbledon for the first time since 2014, is on the long road back after motherhood and hiatus.

The women's final at Wimbledon is here and features an epic showdown between two former Grand Slam champions. She called this victory the biggest goal of her career and she's going to enjoy the moment before thinking of what's next. Oh and this is just the beginning.

'For all you mums out there I was playing for you.

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

Started 2017 atop the rankings but had a frustrating year, failing to defend her Australian Open title after losing 6-2 6-3 to Coco Vandeweghe in the fourth round.

It's truly stunning to see Williams back on the court and competing just 10 months after complications during giving birth almost killed her.

"You two are such an inspiration to the world!" said another. "I go for holidays proud of the things that I'm doing". "That's totally my priority".

Williams cut an emotional figure after a straight-set defeat to Angelique Kerber in the women's singles final of Wimbledon 2018 on Saturday, July 14. Another factor that added to the excitement is the novelty of her motherhood.

Kerber was unfazed by her colleagues falling by the wayside as she continued quietly dismantling players of different calibre. "Honestly I feel like if I can do it, they can do it".

"Serena for me is a champion", she said.

"But to those that do want to go back, you can do it, you can really do it".
