Wow! Angelique Kerber Defeats Serena Williams To Win 2018 Wimbledon Title (Photos)

Angelique Kerber has beaten Serena Williams 6-3 6-3 to win her first Wimbledon title.


It's Kerber's third Grand Slam win after taking the Australian Open and US Open title in 2016.


Williams had been the favourite despite it being only her fourth tournament since giving birth in September.


Kerber dropped to the grass when a netted service return gave her victory.


The German raced to her box after taking the crown before returning to lift the trophy.


Kerber said: "It's a dream come true, Serena you are a great person and champion, such an inspiration for everyone watching. I’m sure you win have your next Grand Slam soon so congratulations for coming back.


"I knew I had to play my best against a champion like Serena, it is always an honour to share a court with her. It is my second chance to play in front of you on Centre Court, I enjoyed every second of the last two weeks so thanks for all the support.


Serena Williams told the BBC: "It was such an amazing tournament for me. I was really happy to get this far. It's obviously disappointing, but I cannot be disappointed, I have so much to look forward to and I am just getting started.


"I am just me, and that's all I can be. To all the mums out there, I was playing for you today, and I tried but Angelique played really well, she played out of her mind. I look forward to continuing to be out here and do what I do best.


"She's an incredible person, a really good friend, so I am really happy for her. I know she's going to really enjoy it and enjoy the moment."
