Serena Williams ‘can’t help but smile’ after advancing to Wimbledon final


Victory in the fourth all-Williams Wimbledon final made it 11 Grand Slams for Serena.

Immediately after she sealed her spot in her 10th singles final at the All England Club with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Germany's Julia Goerges, Serena herself put her win in perspective. "I've played tennis for over 30 years, so I'm so used to [being] incredibly fit".

That streak dates back to Williams' titles on her last two visits in 2016 and 2015 and she is the odds-on favourite to see off Kerber, who she beat in the All England Club title match two years ago.

When Williams married her husband, Alexis Ohanian, many questioned why Markle wasn't in attendance, despite the fact that the guest list was star-studded and impressive with guests like Beyonce, Ciara, and Kim Kardashian.

The Wimbledon ladies' finals are set to have a double dose of royal glamour this weekend, as the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex are confirmed to be attending the match together on Saturday afternoon.

"It's about picking yourself up off the floor", said Jill Smoller, Williams's close friend, confidante and agent of almost 20 years.

She then took the auto to a local Walmart, around the same time the man took his black Infiniti to the same vehicle park. In June, the woman went to Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Cornwall, Ontario, and rented a black Nissan Sentra , CBC reports.

The 2012 Olympic heptathlon champion missed the Commonwealth Games in 2014 as she gave birth to her son Reggie. Williams faces Kerber again Saturday, but a lot has happened since that last match. "I had a really tough delivery. and nearly didn't make it, to be honest", Williams said.

"Because of all the blood issues I have, It was really touch-and-go for a minute".

Extended bed rest followed.

"I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal to be in a Wimbledon final". "It's absolutely incredible that she was able to recover so quickly after surgery". "It's by far the toughest", she said.

When she returned to competition in March, she was disappointed that she didn't perform better. Kerber avenged her losses to the likes of Kasatkina and Osaka, and she was huge against Ostapenko. Particularly in this case, we should all take a step back and have a good think about what that means. She also wrestled with the profound pull of entirely new emotions. In 1973 she triumphed at the Australian, French and US Opens.

Later, Williams was asked whether this has been her most trying comeback in a career that's had its share, including an earlier bout with blood clots in her lungs. To fashionistas, it was a sleek catsuit.

But then, you remember, she is Serena.

But she improved with each round. If she could train the baby to toss the ball in the air for her serves, she might win a couple of rounds.

There was one brief blip to come: Williams got broken for the only time while serving for the match at 5-3.

Agassi believes she can go all the way and make one massive leap over the finish line.

"This is as well as she has played, period, in her career", said nine-time Wimbledon singles champion Martina Navratilova, commentating for the BBC. "You can never count her out".

But this is the only tennis that the tempestuous 21-year-old Latvian knows. I felt like when I played on Court Three, for example, the shots I was hitting were more effective than the shots I was hitting today. "What is cut in a C-section are important parts of your core [muscles]. And that's understating it".
