Kerber tops Williams at Wimbledon for 3rd Grand Slam title

"I know that against Serena, I have to play my best tennis, especially in the important moments", said Kerber, who won the Australian Open and U.S. Open in 2016, but was the runner-up to Williams at Wimbledon that season, "especially in the important moments".

Such is the German's intensity and focus, she might not even notice any celebrity faces gathered around this rectangle of grass. "I look forward to it". "I'm trying to focus on my team and my box and trying to focus on the tennis", said Kerber.

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian attend the wedding of Prince Harry to Ms Meghan Markle at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018 in Windsor, England.

There will be a couple of duchesses in attendance on Saturday.

She won her first title at 17 and reached her tenth Wimbledon final at the age of 36 - having given birth to her first child just 10 months previously. I'm sure you will have your next Grand Slam title soon. She had a daughter, Marika, in 1974 and again returned to the tour, but there would be no more grand slam trophy success. She's not used to losing in major finals and I know at Wimbledon that's going to sting badly.

Not letting his pride get in the way, the 35 year old went on to congratulate the victor Angelique Kerber. "I think it's important for us to share that message". "And I couldn't be more proud", he concluded. "Also, with the experience she has, she is taking more experience into those matches to stay mentally calm".

And it will be no surprise who one of the royals will be cheering on - although she may need to hold back on the celebrations this time.

"Yeah, it's been a insane 10 months", she said on Thursday.

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

"It was such an incredible tournament for me".

But she came into this year's tournament ranked 24th after a poor run of form and her second-round loss to former world number four Dominika Cibulkova has seen her tumble further down the standings.

She said: "Meghan asked how old I was, and what I was doing today".
