Meghan and Kate will attend Wimbledon on Saturday

Meghan and Kate will attend Wimbledon on Saturday

Even though her daughter, Alexis, was delivered in September, which required multiple surgeries including one for blood clots in her lungs, and even though she is playing in only her fourth tournament since becoming a mother, Williams, at 36 years old, routinely dispatched Germany's Julia Goerges on Thursday in London, 6-2, 6-4, to reach the final.

It's insane. I don't even know how to feel because I literally didn't think I'd do this well in my fourth tournament back.

Victory on Saturday will tie Williams with Australian Margaret Court on a record 24 Grand Slam titles but Navratilova believes the American can pull away.

After a barren six-year spell marred by Wimbledon final defeats against Venus and Maria Sharapova, it was Serena's time to regain her throne.

But as much as Kerber will face a surging Williams on the upswing of her comeback from maternity leave Saturday, Williams, too, faces a resurgent Kerber, a player who is back in the top-10 and the No. 11 seed at Wimbledon. She will also force many errors out of her opponent and I feel Kerber's consistency will edge her to her third Slam title.

Serena Williams celebrates after winning against Italy's Camila Giorgi during their women's singles quarter-final match on the eighth day of the 2018 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, London, July 10, 2018. But if any player tips the scales in that category, it's Williams, who is enjoying her matches as much as ever. I was still pregnant at this time past year. We are in 2018! She had a daughter, Marika, in 1974 and again returned to the tour, but there would be no more Grand Slam trophy success. "These are the matches I was working for since I was a kid".

At the beginning of the match, it seemed as if it may just work with the crowd-pleasing Ostapenko mixing her big boisterous hitting with some drop shots, as if to signal that she has soft hands as well.

"Being here and having an opportunity to play is super great for me". "I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final", she said. But unlike in the quarterfinals, when she needed seven match points to win, this time it required only two, with the match ending - fittingly enough - on a forehand by Ostapenko that sailed wide.

"I don't know if it's been the toughest, because I have Olympia". Ahead of the final, in press conference Kerber said: 'I think it is a completely new match. "Because of all the blood issues I have, I was really touch-and-go for a minute".

Her only setback came when she was unable to serve the match out at 5-1 in the second set as Ostapenko made one last stand.

Writing on her former blog, The Tig, the Duchess of Sussex said: "Taking pictures, laughing through the flag football game we were both playing and chatting not about tennis or acting, but about all the good old fashioned girly stuff".
