Meghan Markle And Kate Middleton Attend Serena Williams’ Wimbledon Final Match Together

Serena Williams of The United States celebrates during The Ladies Singles Final against Angelique Kerber of Germany on day twelve of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 9, 2016 in London, England.

Kerber also beat Williams in the 2016 Australian Open final and is the only player, apart from Serena's older sister Venus, to beat her twice in a Grand Slam final.

Kerber made only five unforced errors the entire match, 19 fewer than Williams. A win would have tied her with Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 Grand Slam titles.

"I look forward to it".

@serenawilliams will be holding a trophy again soon-she's got the greatest one waiting at home for her -and our family knows she'll win many more trophies, too. That was also the year that Kerber reached the Wimbledon final, losing to Williams in straight sets.

The 30-year-old looked incredibly confident throughout as she repeatedly thwarted Williams' attempts to seize control of the match.

"Yeah, it's been a insane 10 months", she said on Thursday.

She would recover to make it 30-all but Kerber - who had become extremely tentative with her serving - managed to squeeze a forehand down the line.

"Now she's supporting me in a different role".

At the conclusion of the final both players were incredibly gracious towards one another, with Serena more or less showing she wasn't near her best but gave it her all regardless, and Kerber giving credit to Williams for her comeback and all of her career accomplishments.

"It's good to just continue that path and just continue to keep going for me". Though the German wasn't the aggressor, she still out-attacked the greatest attacker in tennis.

"I see a champion", Kerber said, "that's for sure".

"Well, I think it was a happy story", Williams said with a smile. Knowing that no matter what happens, I have awesome support and unconditional love.

Williams broke back to level at 2-2 before Kerber re-established the advantage in the seventh game when the American hit long, and she took the set when Williams sent a backhand into the net.

On Saturday, Williams was supported by several celebrity friends at Centre Court. Serena rushed shots, sailed easy groundstrokes, missed put-aways, failed to seize the big moments and, most importantly, couldn't return Kerber's average serve.

That group included Tiger Woods, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton and - in the front row of the Royal Box - the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.
