Serena Williams climbs 153 stops to No. 28 in WTA ranking

Serena Williams climbs 153 stops to No. 28 in WTA ranking

The 30-year-old produced a superb display to beat Serena Williams 6-3 6-3 and become the first German since Steffi Graf in 1996 to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish on Centre Court.

Serena was pictured with her husband, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, at Meghan and Harry's stunning Royal Wedding in May.

"Days after our baby girl was born, I kissed my wife goodbye before surgery and neither of us knew if she would be coming back", he told his 380,000 followers.

And the 36-year-old, who gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia Jr just last year, revealed her fellow mums were the driving force behind her competition. Williams was mostly her own undoing, too: She was responsible for the final's initial six unforced errors. "All right, next time when I play her or play someone like her, I'll be more ready".

Mike Shaw says the girl had sent text messages seeking help for herself and her dad before she was struck. Thomas thought her father was dead, got out of the vehicle with her backpack and climbed over a fence.


A revitalised Kerber was able to celebrate a third Grand Slam title and the first since her high-flying career nosedived in a dismal 2017 season.

When asked if the delayed start to the women's final had any impact on hr preparations, she pointed out that throughout the whole tournament, she had never had a first match on start time. "I was really happy to get this far. That's a different feeling for me".

It will take time, no doubt, for Kerber to appreciate her achievement.

After her semi-final win on Thursday, Williams hailed her "wonderful" friendship with Meghan and said she was looking forward to her attending.

Kerber celebrated match point by covering her face and collapsing flat on her back, getting grass stains on her white outfit.

She kept nagging away at Serena and induced more miscues from the American in the sixth game of the second set.

Kerber's coach, Wim Fissette, also believes Williams will soon equal Court's record.

"I also needed to find the motivation after 2016, which was incredible". She played in the tournament as the No. 25 seed, despite being ranked No. 183 in the world in late June. She's always able to raise her level.
