Williams appeared to be regaining that form this fortnight. Barring some sort of setback in the next six weeks, she will head into the U. Open at the end of August as the player to beat.
If Williams does earn one more, it'll tie her with Margaret Court for the all-time record of As it is, Williams has the mark for the most majors in the professional era; she moved one ahead of Graf by winning the Australian Open.
She was pregnant at the time. It would be her last tournament for more than a year, in part because of a series of medical procedures that followed a difficult childbirth.
As she put it this week: "I lost count after, like, four surgeries. Williams didn't enter another major until this May, at the French Open, where she won the three matches she played before withdrawing with a chest muscle injury.
After a little more time off, she played the fourth tournament of her comeback at Wimbledon. Open main navigation Live TV.
Full Schedule. Live Radio. John McEnroe:. This wind makes it hard to play your A-game. I think that benefits Kerber more because she is a better mover.
W illiams, by contrast, moving through this service game like a hot knife through butter, some thunderous winners into vast open spaces of real estate and it's Double fault.
Easy hold. C rucial for Kerber to make a statement in this first service game but she is in trouble early on when Serena unleashes a cross court backhand that hits the sideline and gives AK no chance.
That's Serena dictating terms at , and seals the deal with a delicate volley. Kerber's movement and defence were impressive in that rally, and they will need to be.
She survives the first break point and then moves to A with a commanding groundstroke winner. But then double faults!
Well, it goes without saying that she cannot dish out freebies like that to Serena. And the situation becomes worst when Kerber, under pressure on the baseline, hits into the net.
Another break point. Saves it, moving Williams around well and forcing her to hit into the net. Weak second serve and Williams climbs in with relish, thumping return winner.
Third break point. But the second serve takes a huge kick, spits off a length you might say. Serena cannot get it back.
Williams groundstroke long and wide gives Kerber A AGAIN the first serve fails. Serena drop volleys, Kerber scrambles for it, net cord goes her way and Williams hits long.
Game Kerber, but my goodness she cannot hope to win if every service game is a battle like this one. K erber won the toss and elected to receive Serena respectful of the Wimbledon dress code: All-white headphones.
W illiams and Kerber have walked out onto Centre Court, and we're hopefully in for a cracker. A sub-plot to the build-up to this match has been the always thorny issue of whether women deserve the same prize money as the men.
After her minute semi-final thrashing of Elena Vesnina, Williams dismissed the idea that women should not be paid the same. Williams' victory was one of the fastest singles semi-final at Wimbledon since official records began and the thumping regurgitated debate about prize money in the men's and women's tournaments.
W illiams' domination came in stark contrast to the two thrilling men's quarter-finals on Centre Court on Wednesday, which both went to five sets as Roger Federer fought back to beat Marin Cilic and Andy Murray held off a late comeback from Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
Together with Angelique Kerber's win over Venus Williams on Thursday, the two Centre Court matches took exactly two hours in total, while Federer and Murray's victories lasted a combined seven hours and 11 minutes.
Wimbledon has awarded equal prize money to men and women since and Serena Williams insists that remains the correct decision.
Actually maybe younger, because I have a picture where I'm in a stroller. I think Venus is actually pushing me, and we're on the tennis court. I haven't had a life.
I don't think I would deserve to be paid less because of my sex, or anyone else for that matter in any job. I don't think that it's the right topic, to speak about that.
It's not about that. Women's matches are tough, I can say. We deserve what we have right now. K erber will now face Williams on Saturday, in a repeat of the Australian Open final in January when the German produced a stunning upset to clinch the title.
It doesn't matter if you win or if you lose, that's sport. You never know what happens at the end. At the end only two can win.
You never know if it's two hours or, at the end, eight hours. A reminder that a win for Williams would tie her with Steffi Graf's Open-Era record of 22 grand slams, and give her the chance to break the record at the US Open in September.
It would also be Williams' seventh Wimbledon singles title. Were Kerber to win, it would be her second grand slam title and put to bed any suggestion she's a one slam wonder.
O n the subject of Serena chasing down Graf's record, have a read of Simon Briggs ' excellent piece previewing this match and outlining the pressure Williams is under.
For Kerber, there is an extra subplot involving her friend, idol and mentor Steffi Graf. No wonder Williams was so brusque on Thursday when asked what that magic figure of 22 would mean to her.
I don't talk about that anymore. T he big narrative going into this one of course is whether Williams can avenge the defeat she suffered to Kerber at the Australian Open final in January.
On that day Kerber was at her durable best, and she came up with a number of incredible passing shots to leave Serena helpless at the net.
She'll have to play as well today, and possibly even better, because Williams has looked formidable since a mini wobble against Christina McHale in the third round.
T he American is serving like a dream and looks in the mood to punish any mistakes her opponents are making. Against Serena's sister Venus on Thursday, Kerber got away with a pretty dreadful serving performance, whereas she'll be pulverised if she does the same today.
But the German has been playing very well in these past couple of weeks and is yet to lose a set. A fternoon all, the players are due on court at 2pm, but first of all have a read of our preview below, which features everything you could possibly wish to know.
After a minute knock up and some pomp and pageantry the real action will start, and the match will start at around 2. Oh, very much so. Serena has won five of the seven meetings between the two, but its their most recent meeting that sticks in the memory bank.
The Australian Open final in January was a classic encounter , with Kerber winning in three sets to claim her first grand slam title.
I made a lot of errors. She made little to no unforced errors. I felt like I could have played better. I felt like she played great.
She came out swinging, ready to win. She was fearless. That's something I learned. When I go into a final, I, too, need to be fearless like she was.
I will just try to go out there with a lot of confidence, trying to play my best tennis and trying to give everything I can in the final.
Kerber was in tears as, at the age of 28 and in her first major final, she produced some staggering play as she became the first German since Steffi Graf in to win a grand slam title.
That win 17 years ago is the one that took Graf to the record tally that Serena has still yet to match. Williams herself could only smile as she warmly hugged and congratulated the winner, knowing full well that she had simply been outplayed by one of the finest performances in a Grand Slam final for years.
Serena Williams of the U. Serena broke back immediately, leading the world to suspect that normal service would be resumed - but it was Kerber who broke once more, and never looked threatened in the remainder of the opening set.
The second was a different story, Serena breaking early this time and racing into a lead after picking up a break - though signs of trouble were still there as she double faulted at game point while leading , and was forced to work hard to wrap up the set.
Rather than Serena push on and take charge, however, it was Kerber who seized the initiative: after holding serve easily at the start of the decider, she earned a break point with a simply magnificent display of never-say-die tennis with shotmaking so good that Williams herself could only smile and applaud.
World No. The year-old German was flawless in the opening set as Ostapenko let fly with multiple winners counterbalanced by unforced errors.
But she ran into troubles while serving for victory, with Ostapenko rising to the occasion by saving a match point with a backhand to the corner and breaking to stay in touch as Kerber returned long.
The German finally moved through on her second match point after saving another break point in the final game, advancing as Ostapenko netted a forehand after 68 minutes.
