I feared Serena might die, says husband

Serena Williams Upset in Wimbledon Final

Serena Williams' comeback was nearly too good to be true, and unfortunately, her underdog story fell a bit short as she was defeated in the women's singles finals at Wimbledon yesterday according to ELLE. Separately, Novak Djokovic delivered a semi-final win over Rafael Nadal in a two-day thriller that lasted five hours and 15 minutes.

Following her crushing defeat at the hands of Angelique Kerber, Williams' made an impassioned speech for moms everywhere. A year ago was a real struggle for Kerber so it was no surprise she was so emotional at the moment of victory.

Much of the tennis world reached out to congratulate Kerber, including her Hopman Cup partner Alexander Zverev.

Graf helped Kerber get her game on track earlier in the her career, so it was an especially sweet moment for the 30-year-old to follow in her footsteps at Wimbledon.

"I was showing her some videos, "If you want to have a chance, this is the way".

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.




The German has beaten Williams in straight sets in the women's singles final at Wimbledon in what was just the American's fourth tournament since giving birth in September. Although Williams was on a 20-match winning run at Wimbledon and had lost only one set en route to the final, she was completely out of sorts, spraying wild ground-strokes wide time and again. I'm literally getting started. I just feel like to tell all the mums, like I had such a long struggle to come back and it was really hard, and honestly I feel like if I can do it, they can do it.

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. Getting to the final so soon after her pregnancy was a really wonderful thing.

Williams' play was tight right from the outset. I learned so many things about myself, about the things around, how to deal with it, how to make my day, my schedule. Williams was mostly her own undoing, too: She was responsible for the final's initial six unforced errors. "This is her first title and I know she's going to really enjoy it and enjoy the moment".

"I'm not superhuman, I'm just me". And while the tennis superstar conceded that it "was obviously disappointing" to lose, she revealed that she "can't be disappointed".

And Williams' husband, Alexis Ohanian, shared a story putting into perspective just how much Williams had come back from.
