Serena survives Fourth of July test from Slovenian student

The Duchess of Sussex has spent her Fourth of July cheering on friend and fellow American Serena Williams at Wimbledon.

The outfit constituted more of Meghan's pre-royal signature style, and was completed by her trademark messy bun.

She was joined by her Northwestern university friends Lyndsay Roth and Genevieve Hillis to watch the action from court one.

While there was no sign of the Duke of Sussex or their baby son Archie, Meghan was spotted wearing a necklace with an "A" pendant, as well as sunglasses and a Panama hat.

There has been speculation that Williams could be a godparent to Archie, as Meghan and Williams have become close over the years.

Meghan is still on maternity leave from royal duties after giving birth to Prince Archie. "I am a fighter I never give up".

With pressure mounting, Williams was relieved to go through the gears.

The pair are believed to have come over from the States for Archie's christening tomorrow.

"No, I'm working on Saturday", Williams said, smiling, hinting that she'd knocked back an invitation.

Earlier on Thursday, Swiss great Roger Federer revealed he had recently played tennis with Prince George.

Qualifier Juvan sped into a remarkable 3-0 lead within seven minutes and made her 37-year-old opponent fight for a further six minutes before she finally won a game.

However, Williams ruled herself out of the guessing game.

"We like to do a lot of sports with Olympia".

Meghan's visit to the All England Club comes after her sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, made her own surprise trip to SW19 on Tuesday.

The deciding set started off very promising for the appreciative crowd until Williams broke serve to carve out a 4-2 lead, which greatly affected the youngster.
