Serena Williams loses Wimbledon final, 10 months after having baby

Serena Williams invites a tennis legend to sit on her player's box

Williams broke back to level at 2-2 before Kerber re-established the advantage in the seventh game when the American hit long, and she took the set when Williams sent a backhand into the net.

Williams, 36, had been attempting to win a first Grand Slam since giving birth to her daughter Olympia in September.

Playing her first slam final since the 2017 Australian Open, which she won while two months pregnant, in only her fourth tournament back, it was perhaps no surprise that Williams started nervously. This makes her a steadier player than she was a few years ago. She is only four tournaments into her comeback and now has now won 20 consecutive matches. But of course, the most exciting part of the day for Markle is to support her good friend, who also attended her wedding to Prince Harry. But in the eyes of many watching on Saturday, Williams was still a victor. "I'm obviously disappointed but I can't be - because I'm literally just getting started".

Williams was in full agreement with the 30-year-old German and played down suggestions that it was disrespectful to the women's game. I was really happy to get this far. "To all the mums out there, I was playing for you today, and I tried but Angelique played really well, she played out of her mind", she said.

Six months later, she was runner-up to Williams at Wimbledon before adding a second career major at the US Open with victory over Karolina Pliskova.

As of July 12, government-provided reunification data said 103 children under 5 years old were covered by the court order. The child is now in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement.

She lost to Angelique Kerber on Saturday, but Ohanian is still so proud.

It's unbelievable and I'm sure you'll have your next Grand Slam title soon.

She was bumped up to 25th seed courtesy of her seven titles at the All England Club - the most recent in 2016 - and more than justified that decision.

Kerber looked impeccable during her 6-3, 6-3 win over Ostapenko where she dragged her young opponent all across the court. Djokovic saved three set points before taking the third-set tiebreaker to establish a 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (9) lead. "And to hold this trophy now, it is something that I can't describe".

The men's semi-final will resume at 1pm on centre court, after which, the ladies' final will begin.
