Twitter reacts to Angelique Kerber defeating Serena Williams to win Wimbledon

She barely made it alive whilst delivering her baby girl. The ace tennis player was defeated by Angelique Kerber and this got the Duchess of Sussex emotional.

The 40-year-old Bryan is the oldest man in the Open era to win the Wimbledon doubles title.

Alexis Ohanian posted a photo of the tennis champion onto Instagram with the caption "just getting started".

Amid all of the superstardom surrounding Williams, it's easy to forget Kerber won two Slams and an Olympic silver medal in 2016.

She responded to the criticism surrounding her seeding.

The German has beaten Williams in straight sets in the women's singles final at Wimbledon in what was just the American's fourth tournament since giving birth in September.

Williams was controversially seeded 25th, due to her history with the tournament as a multiple champion, and made a strong run without facing a fellow seed until the penultimate round.

After the match, during an interview, Serena got a bit emotional sharing that: 'It was such an incredible tournament for me. "I look forward to continuing to be back out here and do what I do best".

"It was a great opportunity for me".

It's astonishing that Serena, at 36, can manage this. And she needed just 65 minutes to beat her once more.

Nadal-Djokovic semifinal suspended after third set
That's also the a year ago Djokovic and Nadal met at the All-England Club, with Djokovic winning 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3 in the final. The game dragged on for a total of six hours and 36 minutes, with the final set alone taking two hours and 54 minutes.

"As we know, Angie brings back every ball so the combination of all of that was ideal for us".

In February, Serena revealed how she nearly died giving birth and was bedridden for six weeks afterwards. She was, for instance, on a strict vegan diet to lose the weight that she'd gained during pregnancy.

Prior to that, Williams admitted she prayed and "cried a little bit" when she stopped breastfeeding Alexis.

Following the landmark moment, she tweeted: "She took her first steps". She'd later tweeted that she cried.

"This year was a huge success for her on the clay", Fissette said. But not her. For being able to cross these hurdles, to hold her racquet again and contest in the highest level of the sport, Serena's grateful.

"I was here a year ago with Jo in the semi-final", said the ever-tactful Fissette on Saturday evening. But I was trying to tell myself, "Go out there and play your best match", because I know that against Serena I have to play my best tennis, especially in the important moments. "It's not frustrating, but it's like, 'C'mon, guys, this is pretty awesome'".

When a Williams backhand hit the net the 30-year-old Kerber, who has now won three Grand Slams, collapsed on the dusty baseline before running to the net for a warm embrace with Williams who she lost to in the 2016 Wimbledon final.

Kerber said of her win: "It's just a dream come true". She, then, was still finding her feet after her return to tennis.

After all the time away, Williams spoke about being impressed with herself for just reaching the final. I'm sure you will have your next Grand Slam title soon.
