A relatively routine 6-2, 6-4 semifinal victory over 13th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany on Thursday put Williams into her 10th final at the All England Club and moved her closer to a 24th Grand Slam title, which would equal Margaret Court's record.

Serena Williams is back, for real.

In September 2017, she gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia, an experience which she later described as life-threatening and detailed complications she faced from a pulmonary embolism and a host of surgeries to prevent blood clots spreading to her lungs.

That mentality shifted slightly when Williams dropped her first set of the championships in the quarter-finals against Camila Giorgi and following the stunning exit of overwhelming men's favourite Roger Federer yesterday, which proved the unthinkable can happen. Yes, it's her 30th title match at any major. "I just feel like when I don't have anything to lose, I just can play so free, and that's kind of what I'm doing". "I had a really tough delivery, and I had to have multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it, to be honest", Williams said. "For me it's such a pleasure and a joy because, you know, less than a year ago, I was going through so much stuff".

While Meghan attended Wimbledon two years ago as a guest of Ralph Lauren, she has not yet made an appearance in the royal box this year.

Kerber is a former No. 1 and a two-time major champion, both coming in 2016 at the Australian Open and U.S. Open. The All England Club amended the rules and seeded her, instead of following the ranking list that doesn't take into account players' taking a break for maternity leave. "I know that I have to play my best tennis to beat her, especially on the grass".

Add that to a retirement account worth about $500,000, plus the equity in his home, and he has about a million dollars in wealth. The story goes on to state that filings show the ticket purchases were made at the end of 2016 and paid off early the next year.


'But as I said in the past couple years, I don't want to limit myself.

The German was unable to turn that break into anything resembling a comeback, however, as Williams quickly earned three match points in the following game and converted when Gorges sent a lob long.

In the driving seat, Williams began hitting the ball cleanly and with her customary mesomorphic beauty, holding her serve and then breaking Goerges, this time to love.

For Meghan, her attendance comes days after her whistle stop trip to Dublin, which saw the 36-year-old mark her first tour outside the United Kingdom with new husband Prince Harry.

It took Kerber two tries to serve out the victory, getting broken to 5-2.

The first two points played by Ostapenko - who won the French Open in 2017 and crashed out in the first round the following year - were emblematic of the match.
