Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle confirmed to attend Wimbledon finals together

'She's trying to, yeah, playing like she played the years before where she won the big matches.

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.

"Almost didn't make it, to be honest", Williams said shortly after completing her 6-2, 6-4 semifinal victory over 13th-seeded Julia Goerges on Thursday.

The former world number one will be seeking a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title when she faces Angelique Kerber in Saturday's showpiece. "It's interesting", Serena said of her Wimbledon run over the last fortnight. I can see it going a little like their 2016 match at Wimbledon where it's tight in the beginning, but Serena wins in straight sets.

"Whatever happens, honestly it's an incredible effort from me. and good motivation to keep going for the rest of my career", Williams added. I know that she is always pushing you to the limits to play your best tennis.

They will watch Angelique Kerber take on Serena Williams in the women's final, Kensington Palace confirmed last night.

Serena is well established as one of her sport's all-time greats and winning the title for the third time in the last four years - she missed the 2017 tournament due to her pregnancy - would only enhance her standing. However, Clijsters completed a remarkable sporting comeback to win the 2009 US Open just 18 months after giving birth - becoming the first mother to win a Grand Slam singles title since Evonne Goolagong in 1980. "Or I should say, I don't want to let her go".

The Duchess of Cambridge is a regular guest at the tennis, as Patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. Then she opted to play a more defensive shell against Daria Kasatkina, hitting 16 winners to the Russian's 33.

"If I want to play on that level, I have to reduce my unforced errors".

"I had a really tough delivery and I had to have multiple surgeries". There was a time I could barely walk to my mailbox.

Ostapenko's previous experience of playing on Centre Court was past year against Venus Williams in the quarter-finals. Vinci had even booked a flight home for the day after their match.

The two Duchesses will attend the Ladies' Singles Final on Saturday, their first official royal appearance together without William and Harry.

There were moments when watching Goerges made it easy to wonder how it could be possible she never had been past a major's fourth round until now. She dropped out of the top 20, failed to make another Slam final and fired her longtime coach. She was unable to take advantage of her opponent's sub-80 miles per hour serves.

"Now for sure she had a lot of big confidence, especially after the matches she won here already". She was solid in every facet of the game.

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. "It's such a great feeling". "It was quite tough but I'm happy to be through".

"This was not inevitable for me", Williams said after the match, which took 70 minutes to complete.
