Serena Williams vs Julia Goerges, Wimbledon 2018 semi-final

Serena Williams in action at Wimbledon

Kensington Palace has confirmed new mother Kate will tag along with the American to see her bosom buddy Serena Williams's clash with Angelique Kerber of the final this weekend. "I know that I have to play my best tennis to beat her, especially on the grass".

The German attacked the biggest chink in Ostapenko's armour - her second serve, which is weak and ineffectual.

She's also closing in on her 24th Grand Slam title, which would equal Margaret Court's all-time record.

Last year, Williams took a break from competitive sport, announcing her pregnancy shortly after claiming her 23rd Grand Slam at the 2017 Australian Open. "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".

Kerber, in contrast, bides her time, working the back of the court to get everything back over the net, often kneeling to get low enough to reach shots. She's been excellent this Wimbledon, although it wasn't easy late against the stubborn Ostapenko.

Playing her first Wimbledon semifinal, 21-year-old Ostapenko rallied to save a match point and break Kerber's serve for the first time, but the German saved a break point as she served out the match at the second attempt.

I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final. 'I think it doesn't matter against who she is playing.

Adult film star Stormy Daniels arrested at OH strip club, lawyer says
Police documents show that Stormy touched Prather's butt and breasts and then put her own breasts in Prather's face. Prosecutors say the "touching" statute only applies to strippers who "regularly appear" at the establishment.

"Whatever happens, honestly, it's an incredible effort from me and just good motivation to keep going for the rest of our career", Williams said. Kerber did not dictate much, content to let 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko determine the outcome of almost every point.

That title pushed her past Steffi Graf's record of 22 majors in the half-century professional era; Court won some of her Slams during the amateur era.

The American nearly bagged an early break despite Gorges racing to a 40-0 lead in her first service game.

The pattern continued in the second set as 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko's unforced errors - which totaled 35 by the end of the match - gave Kerber two more breaks of serve for a 5-1 lead.

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.

"She brings her "A game" in a lot of important moments", Goerges said.

"I don't know if it's been the toughest, because I have Olympia".
