Wimbledon 2018 Final. Angelique Kerber of Germany won the Wimbledon 2018 title for the first time by defeating Serena Williams of US in women’s singles final on Saturday. Kerber defeated ‘Super Mom’ Serena Williams 6-3, 6-3 in straight sets in the Wimbledon 2018 Final.
While Kerber won the Wimbledon title for the first time, Serena Williams was very disappointed by the defeat because she could not match the all-time 24 grand slam title record of Margaret Court.
Kerber became the third tennis player to beat Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final. Only Maria Sharapova and Venus Williams could have done this before.
Angelique Kerber of Germany also broke Serena Williams’s eighth Wimbledon title dream. This is the third grand slam title for Karber. Before that, she has won the US Open and Australian Open in 2016.
Karber has added another achievement in her winning list. She is Germany’s first female player to win the Wimbledon title after Steffi Graf. Before her, Graf won her last Wimbledon title in 1996.
Kerber said at presentation that “I knew I had to play my best match against Serena. This ismy second chance to be back in the final. And I want to thank my family and my team without you I won’t be here. I was trying not to look at my mother, she is always so nervous when I’m playing. I also want to tell Serena that you are a great person and champion. You are an inspiration for all the people watching.”
Serena Williams’ emotional message:
The 36-year-old Serena Williams was close to winning the Grand Slam for the first time after giving birth to her daughter. However, both players could not control their tears during the presentation ceremonies.
Serena said, “It was such an amazing tournament for me. I was really hoping to get this far,”
“It’s obviously disappointing, but I can’t be disappointed. I have so much to look forward to. I’m literally just getting started.”
“To all the moms out there, I was playing for you today and I tried,’ she said.
