Serena Williams makes Wimbledon final, 10 months after childbirth

Serena Williams has been mobbed on her way out of show courts this fortnight.

"She knew how to win that match by her experience, and".

Seeded 25th, the 36-year-old cruised through the opening set with consummate ease and conceded just two games as the German struggled from the outset. She will also be returning to Wimbledon the following day with her husband Prince William to watch the Gentlemen's Singles Final on Centre Court.

Kerber, who spent 34 weeks at world number one in 2016 and 2017, could be set for a rematch with Williams if the seven-time champion can get past Julia Goerges in the second semi-final. To hear people say, "Oh, she's a favourite" - the last 16 months, I've played four tournaments, and was carrying another human half that time. Now she's supporting me in a different role.

"I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final". "We saw that she improved every single match she's playing here".

In the semifinals, Williams, who entered the tournament ranked 181, weighed in quickly, breaking the 29-year-old, in the fifth game.

"She's playing so well".

Serena Williams will have royalty in the stands when she plays in the women's final at Wimbledon on Saturday. Williams broke the ace-thumping, heavy-striking German again in the seventh game before serving out the set in 33-minutes.

"She is here. She came back". "I've played tennis for over 30 years, so I'm so used to [being] incredibly fit". The American, who didn't face breakpoint until late in the semifinal clash, then served out handily for a 5-2 lead.

Williams was in control from the outset against 13th seed Gorges, who was making her Grand Slam semi-final debut.

A jubilant Williams celebrated with relish as she closed out victory with a break of serve to love on the Goerges delivery.

Ostapenko, seeded 12th at SW19, threw everything at her opponent but was not able to haul herself back into the contest at all. "In a way, it's by far the toughest, but in a way it's by far the best".

"This is not inevitable for me, I had a really tough delivery and multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it to be honest", said Williams after her semi-final victory on Thursday.

"I am really happy and proud to be back in the grand slam final".
