Serena Williams to take on Angelique Kerber

Friday, July 13th, 2018

Serena Williams can’t believe she’s poised to crown her tennis comeback with an eighth Wimbledon crown after playing her way into a 10th final at The All England Club.

Williams will take on fellow former world No.1 Angelique Kerber in Saturday’s showpiece final after overpowering German 13th seed Julia Goerges 6-2 6-4 in just her 13th match back since returning to the court after more than a year’s maternity leave.

“It’s crazy to even know how I feel because I literally didn’t expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back,” Williams said.

“I just feel when I don’t have much to lose, I can play free.”

Kerber earlier beat Latvian 12th seed and 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko 6-3 6-3 in Thursday’s first semi-final.
