Serena can cap comeback with historic Wimbledon success

  • Julia Goerges in disbelief after reaching her first Grand Slam semifinal

Wimbledon seemingly disagrees with where the WTA think Williams is at right now.

- This was an emotional fifth Wimbledon title for Serena after injury and health issues forced her to the sidelines for over a year between 2010 and 2012. This was one of a clutch of strangely lacklustre all-Williams finals that played a role in the public's apathy.

It's insane. I don't even know how to feel because I literally didn't think I'd do this well in my fourth tournament back.

Nine-times champion Martina Navratilova said victory on Saturday would be the "biggest triumph of her career".

Williams needs to win, but one more match to claim her eighth Wimbledon title and her 24th Grand Slam title and etch her name alongside Margaret Court's as the winningest Grand Slam champion in history.

She was, instead, going to employ spectacular defense and solid, steady play, while letting her opponent, Jelena Ostapenko, be the one to determine the outcomes of almost every point.

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. "I honestly felt I would have done better in some of the earlier tournaments".

'To be perfectly honest, I haven't thought about that this tournament, ' she said after beating Julia Goerges 6-2 6-4.

"Believe me, I know she wants to go out there and win".

Upon landing at the Islamabad airport, they will either be flown to Adiala Jail or driven to Attock Jail, Dawn newspaper reported. After the Supreme Court ousted Sharif as prime minister last July, the courts barred him from heading the party he founded.

That aggression wasn't as necessary on Thursday against Jelena Ostapenko. Against Naomi Osaka in the third round, she cracked 23 winners to 5 unforced errors, unsettling the youngster with her aggression.

Remarkably, the 36-year-old was back in a Grand Slam final just 10 months after giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia. Williams, the lowest ranked Wimbledon semifinalist, completed her 92nd win here, four victories away from Chris Evert, who owns the second most successes here in the Open Era (96).

"It's very impressive. I haven't even been to the gym, let alone played tennis. It was quite tough but I'm happy to be through". "I remember I couldn't even walk to my mail box, so it's definitely not "normal" for me to be in a Wimbledon final".

"I still have a match to win", she said.

The American's fiercely competitive streak fuelled her rise from the bullet-riddled courts of Compton in south-central Los Angeles, and she remains as driven as ever.

They've played each other a total of eight times in the past, and Williams leads 6-2.

For German 11th seed Kerber, winning Wimbledon for the first time - at the expense of the woman who denied her in 2016 - would be a sweet moment.

Yet, just five months into her return from maternity leave, she has surprised experts and spectators alike by storming to the final, dropping just one set along the way.

Writing on her former blog, The Tig, the Duchess of Sussex said: "Taking pictures, laughing through the flag football game we were both playing and chatting not about tennis or acting, but about all the good old fashioned girly stuff".
