10 months after baby, Serena in Wimbledon final vs. Kerber

The women's singles final will not start before 2 pm local time, 6:30 pm IST and 1 pm GMT.

Serena Williams of the USA returns a ball to Angelique Kerber of Germany during the women's singles final match at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, in London, July 14, 2018.

Angelique Kerber has taken the first set 6-3 against Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final.

"It's obviously disappointing, but I can not be disappointed". She was playing in the fourth tournament of her comeback. "Now she's supporting me in a different role, but our friendship is still exactly the same", she said.

Kerber clinched the coveted trophy, denying Williams a chance to grab her 24th Grand Slam title.

Williams endured life-saving surgery after Olympia's hard delivery and serving as an inspiration to mothers all over the world had been part of the former world one's decision to return to tennis. "But now I am just trying to [improve] my game, thinking not too much about the results, trying to be a better tennis player, a better person, and I'm trying to enjoy tennis again".

No fear but we're not the favourites, says Croatia's Mandzukic
Let's see if football really is coming home, as we can hear from every corner of England at the moment. Of the tournament's star players, Romelu Lukaku has performed as strongly as we expected him to.

Williams and Meghan have been close for years, with the 36-year-old tennis ace attending the royal wedding in May in with her husband, Alexis Ohanian.

She's just getting started. "Angelique played really well, played out of her mind". Kerber, a left-hander, is ranked 92 worldwide and has won two major titles: the 2016 Australian Open and the 2016 U.S. Open.

After taking the opening two points, Wiliiams made four miscues in a row to get broken.

Angelique Kerber returns the ball to Serena Williams. She has added a more aggressive element to her game in recent years. But she brought up the one match point she required with a forehand bang on the baseline.

Another interesting fact about today's match is that if Williams wins, she would be the first mother to do so since Australian Evonne Goolagong in 1980.

Before the women's final begins, the Centre Court crowd will be treated to the conclusion of the men's semifinal between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
