Wimbledon: Men and women should both play best of three sets

Serena Williams celebrating

Alexis Ohanian, the internet entrepreneur and founder of Reddit, saluted the 36-year-old Williams for battling back from life-saving surgery to get within touching distance of an eighth Wimbledon title.

Djokovic will face Kevin Anderson in the final tonight.

Kerber, who finished runner-up to Serena two years ago, became the first German player to lift the women's trophy in 22 years after Graf won her last and seventh title in southwest London.

Kerber avenged her defeat against Williams in the 2016 Wimbledon title match, overwhelming the seven-time champion with a stunning 65-minute upset on Centre Court. She also wrote about the problems affecting women all over the world giving birth, many whom have no access to drugs or doctors to save them when the suffer health complications. Past year was a real struggle for Kerber so it was no surprise she was so emotional at the moment of victory. 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.

"It's a dream come true", the champion said in an on-court interview with the BBC.

Kerber made only five unforced errors the entire match, 19 fewer than Williams.

In the end those sparks from her came very few and far in between, meaning it was a rather comfortable victory for the soon to be World No. 4.

I can't fault the lads, we gave it everything". "This should not be sneezed at, this is a major competition". In the immediate aftermath of the semi-final Mr Jex said: " England didn't play too badly".

Conte Set To Bid Chelsea Farewell After Two Years
Antonio Conte has finally been let go by Chelsea , with Maurizio Sarri waiting in the wings as the next Blues boss. Conte departs a year before his contract was due to expire and will now be in line for £9million in compensation.

It was already a miracle for Serena Williams considering she just returned to the tour 10 months after the birth of her first child.

Urged on by husband Alexis Ohanian and her celebrity supporters, Williams upped her aggression and noise level, almost taking out her opponent with a thunderous drive volley in the third game of the second set.

Unfortunately, Williams was unsuccessful in the women's final against Angelique Kerber, and she gave the most inspiring, and tear-inducing, concession speech as a result. "I'm really, really sure".

Meanwhile, the victory over Williams was a personal satisfaction for Fissette, who has now coached five different players who have beaten the great American.

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 fantastic tournament for me".

"So I think these two weeks have really showed me that, okay, I can compete".

"It's obviously disappointing but I can't be disappoinited, I'm literally just getting started. I look forward to continuing to be back out here and do what I do best". But, yeah, I just have to add it to the list.
