Angelique Kerber opens up on how to beat Serena Williams at Wimbledon

Two months away from turning 37, and just 10 months after giving birth to her first child, this extraordinary athlete now has the opportunity to relive the 2016 Wimbledon final, when she played and defeated Kerber. Williams paused, realizing she, too, was getting ahead of herself.

Williams will face another German, 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber, on Saturday in a rematch of the 2016 final at Wimbledon.

Serena Williams has been mobbed on her way out of show courts this fortnight. "I think it's just not fair".

Williams, seems to have taken the lead from her 10-month daughter in her approach to her comeback that has taken her to a 10th Wimbledon final.

Goerges had come into her first Grand Slam semi-final having belted more winners (199), more aces (44) and more unreturned serves (113) than anyone else in the women's draw but those statistics counted for little when she came up against an opponent who is in hot pursuit of a record-equalling 24th major. "It would be really special to win", said the two-time Grand Slam champion. Immediately, though, she broke back at love to end it, placing her left fist on her chest when Goerges' last shot landed long. "I remember I couldn't even walk to my mail box, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final".

"There's word on the street", Williams said when asked if Meghan would attend the final. "It's such a pleasure and a joy [to be in the final] because less than a year ago, I was going through so much".

"It's insane. I don't even know how to feel, you know, because literally, didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", said Williams who returned to tournament play in March after a 13-month absence. Second serve points won: Ostapenko (41 per cent), Kerber (73 per cent).

With 2016, all the success, 2017, with a few up and downs, to coming back this year, I think I learned so many things about me.

. In her seven victorious finals at The Championships, she has dropped just two sets: to Venus Williams in 2003 and to Agnieszka Radwanska in 2012.

Serena Williams of the US celebrates winning her semi final match against Germany's Julia Goerges.

"I don't want to limit myself", Williams said. Williams won that for a second consecutive title at the All England Club, then sat out the grass-court tournament previous year while pregnant, part of a 16-month gap between majors.

After getting broken by Goerges in the second set Thursday, Williams slammed the door on any thought of a rally by serving out the match with successive service blasts.

In the week leading up to her first-round match against Viktoriya Tomova, Williams posted a daily countdown on Instagram that included flashback Wimbledon photos and uplifting sentiments.

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