Williams is ranked 28th in the list published on Monday.
She needed surgery and was bed-bound for weeks, but Williams has managed to overcome those hard days and resume her tennis career. So steady, so patient, so accurate throughout, she never really gave Williams much of a chance this time, putting together a 6-3, 6-3 victory Saturday for her first championship at the All England Club and third major overall.
She knew exactly what to expect - and what to do - against Serena Williams.

This is only her fourth tournament and after giving birth to her daughter 10 months ago. But soon succumbed under expectations in the next year and here Kerber is again out to prove that she is no one season wonder.

Winning Wimbledon with Olympia at the tournament with her was supposed to be the crowning glory of her return to the top.
Kerber looked understandably nervous as she served for the match at 5-3 but could celebrate when Williams netted a backhand on her first match point.
Two years after losing to Williams with a title on the line at Centre Court, Kerber came through.
Trump blames Russian Federation rift on USA probe, Moscow agrees
The White House correspondent for the Associated Press became the hero we all needed when he boldly went where Mr Trump would not. Mr Trump was joined at the luncheon by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, US ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman and other top aides.
And when she swung her racket, the measure was nearly always true.
