Alexis Ohanian Posts Encouraging Message To Serena Williams After Wimbledon Loss

Serena Williams Upset in Wimbledon Final

Williams, bidding for her 24th Grand Slam champion, slipped to world No. 181 during the past year and has become the lowest-ranked player to reach the Wimbledon final since the game turned professional 50 years ago.

Serena Williams' comeback was nearly too good to be true, and unfortunately, her underdog story fell a bit short as she was defeated in the women's singles finals at Wimbledon yesterday according to ELLE. I'm sure you [will] win your next grand slam soon, so congratulations for coming back.

"It is my second chance to play in front of you on Centre Court, I enjoyed every second of the last two weeks so thanks for all the support". To share with her a court, it's always an honor for me because I know she's pushing me to the limits I have to play my best tennis.'.

There was another notable mother watching on, with the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton sitting in the Royal Box alongside her new sister-in-law Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex.

Kerber won her first championship at the All England Club and third major overall by playing cleanly and picking her spots for big shots, beating Williams 6-3, 6-3 on Saturday. But Kerber struggled with demands of being queen of the court and she hit a drought in 2017 and dropped out of the top-10.

Williams had been chasing a record-equalling 24th grand slam singles success and was close to tears at the end, saying on court: "It was such an incredible tournament for me".

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. Her ability to retrieve a huge number of balls would put the focus on her opponent's footwork and physical resilience. She beat Williams in the Australian Open final that year, then won that year's U.S. Open to briefly replace her at No. 1 in the rankings.

The return of the 23 times grand slam victor was never a given following a tumultuous labor and post-pregnancy, and, in her return to the circuit in February, she suffered back-to-back early exits at Indian Wells and the Miami Masters. All she could do was smile.

Williams tried everything to get back into the match but her afternoon was rather summed up by the drive volley she placed over the baseline in the final game after a stunning rally. "It's obviously disappointing, but I can't be disappointed. I look forward to continuing to be back out here and do what I do best". "I'm literally just getting started, so I look forward to it", she added.

"Angelique played really well", Williams said.
