"That's kind of what I'm doing".
"I was expecting a few more baby steps myself", she said. "That's pretty cool", Williams said of the British public's respect for her achievements. Williams, who over the years has introduced variety into her play, threw up a lob to set-up breakpoint, which she duly converted to take a 4-2 lead.
It is also just the sixth Grand Slam final this decade to be contested between multiple Slam champions; the previous five were all won by Serena Williams, who defeated Justine Henin at the 2010 Australian Open, Maria Sharapova at Roland Garros 2013, Victoria Azarenka at the 2013 US Open, Sharapova once again at the 2015 Australian Open and Venus Williams at the 2017 Australian Open.

Kerber, who lost to Williams in Wimbledon's 2016 final, will have a shot at redemption in what's already been a solid season. "I've played tennis for over 30 years, so I'm so used to [being] incredibly fit. I couldn't even walk to my mail box, so for me to back in a Wimbledon final isn't normal nor is it inevitable".
Serena Williams is not focused on simply matching and breaking Margaret Court's all-time Grand Slam record - she wants to smash it. In addition, this was Williams' 20th consecutive victory at Wimbledon, a run which has taken her to the title in her last two appearances.
She was, instead, going to employ spectacular defense and solid, steady play, while letting her opponent, Jelena Ostapenko, be the one to determine the outcomes of almost every point.
The German was unable to turn that break into anything resembling a comeback, however, as Williams quickly earned three match points in the following game and converted when Gorges sent a lob long. The American, who didn't face breakpoint until late in the semifinal clash, then served out handily for a 5-2 lead. "It was a tough match, Jelena was hitting hard, moving good and taking chances". I just feel like when I don't have anything to lose, I can just play so free.
