Wimbledon: Serena Williams' husband pays tribute after final defeat

Wimbledon: Serena Williams' husband pays tribute after final defeat

Serena competed in the finals of the tournament about 10 months after giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia, reported E!

The greatest female tennis player in history, and perhaps the greatest tennis player period, is in trouble.

Victoria Azarenka, 28, a former No. 1 like Williams, is climbing back up the rankings with a 19-month-old son in tow.

Thus, Kerber won her third career Grand Slam and took Williams revenge for the defeat in the final of the Open championship of great Britain 2016.

As you may know already, this was Serena's comeback to the field after she welcomed her first baby with husband, Alexis Ohanian.

Kerber bided her time as she waited for a high lob to drop and she whacked a forehand down the line to open up her first match point.

The 30-year-old who was also victorious at the 2016 Australian Open against Williams ticked off a lifelong dream and pulled off the almighty task of besting the GOAT. "You have to go through all the things - the good things, the bad things - and then you need to learn", said Kerber, the first German to win Wimbledon since Steffi Graf in 1996. "Without you I wouldn't be here, so thanks", she added.

At Wimbledon, she wore special compression leggings as a precaution. Yet, Williams' showed an enormous degree of maturity and good sportsmanship as she complimented her opponent, thanked her fans and supporters, and laid the truth down without reservation in front of a packed building and an audience of millions watching around the world.

Serena emerged as favourite to win another Wimbledon title after she dispatched Julia Görges 6-2, 6-2 in her semifinal while Kerber swept Jeļena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3 in the other final.
