Serena Williams set to ‘be a contender to win Grand Slams’

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are set to make their first solo royal appearance together this weekend at Wimbledon

While today marks her first appearance in the royal box at Wimbledon, this isn't the first time Meghan has gone to the tournament.

'I'm completely a supporter of women, and women's sport obviously, ' Williams said.

"It was my second chance to play in the final". I think Wimbledon is something special.

This will be Williams attempt at bagging a 24th grand slam title at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, England so she'll no doubt be thrilled to have her friend cheering Centre Court-side.

Seven-time champion Williams struggled for accuracy as she made 14 unforced errors and was broken three times against the same opponent she defeated in the 2016 final.

It was supposed to be the day Serena Williams completed a remarkable comeback and claimed a record-matching 24th Grand Slam title but Angelique Kerber ripped up the script to outclass her 6-3 6-3 in Saturday's Wimbledon final.

"For all you mums out there I was playing for you".

While, the mum-of-one had been reluctant to say whether her good friend Meghan would turn up to Wimbledon during the earlier rounds of competition, once the official announcement came from Kensington Palace on Thursday, Serena broke her silence on the subject.

But analysts have long warned that the country has not tackled the root causes of extremism. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack on the ANP rally.

"Most people would not even be able to be here". This makes her a steadier player than she was a few years ago.

"I'm just me, that's all I can be", Williams said about playing as a mother.

Kerber celebrated match point by covering her face and collapsing flat on her back, getting grass stains on her white outfit.

After taking the opening set 6-3 with the decisive break of serve, she managed to hold the ascendancy from the outset, not allowing the American a way back into the contest. Angelique Kerber has been in Grand Slam finals and even won a couple. "I was really happy to get this far", Williams said.

In an interview with Vogue she talked plainly about her post-birth complications - the pulmonary embolisms, the rupture of her C-section wound, and a large hematoma in her abdomen that left her bedridden for six weeks - and the emotional surges of new motherhood while trying to reclaim her body after all the trauma.

On break point, the left-hander landed the knockout blow with a fierce forehand victor down the line that left Williams grasping in vain to reach it.

@serenawilliams will be holding a trophy again soon-she's got the greatest one waiting at home for her -and our family knows she'll win many more trophies, too. Serena rushed shots, sailed easy groundstrokes, missed put-aways, failed to seize the big moments and, most importantly, couldn't return Kerber's average serve.
