2017 slump was key to Wimbledon title, says Kerber

Angelique Kerber became the first German woman to win Wimbledon since Steffi Graff in 1996 following her victory over Serena Williams in Saturday's women's final. EPA

Williams said, after the match: "She played from first point to the last point really good".

Up against the favourite Serena, who was into her fourth tournament since the Australian Open victory, Kerber started well. After her defeat in the women's final, Williams delivered an emotional speech that reportedly even made Meghan tear up in the stands.

"I knew it was more hard to win the French than Wimbledon. But now I'm just trying to improve my game, thinking not too much about the results, trying to be a better tennis player, a better person". "I think I learned a lot from past year, with all the expectation, all the things I go through". "With five different players, they have beaten her".

Serving for the match, Kerber looked nervous as Williams got it back to 30-30 but she claimed victory when Williams netted, tumbling to the dusty baseline in relief before being warmly embraced by her opponent.

After many, many hours, Anderson beats Isner in Wimbledon semis
It was past 8 p.m.in London when Anderson and Isner wrapped up, meaning the second semifinal could extend into Saturday. One spectator called out, "Come on, guys!" Back and fully healthy, Djokovic and Nadal should give us a match to see.

Her return to success on the grandest stage not only makes Kerber one of the biggest names on tour, but also inserts her into conversations about generational greats.

Ohanian's Instagram post was accompanied by a powerful image of Williams, with the phrase "just getting started".

"I also needed to find the motivation after 2016, which was fantastic. I came in here expecting that maybe I wouldn't get a seed". And, for this, Serena should blame herself: she didn't look like a woman, who's returned after surviving a life-threatening surgery; she was once again the superwoman, who'd won six of her previous 10 Grand Slams before announcing her pregnancy. It is obviously disappointing but I can not be disappointed.

"So I think these two weeks have really showed me that I can come out and be a contender to win Grand Slams". "What I have learned from that is that sometimes you have to say no, and take time for yourself, not doing every single day media or some stuff, just making a few days for yourself".

Officer resigns after dispute over Puerto Rican shirt
Irizarry responds that she is wearing the shirt "because I can" and explains that Puerto Rico is part of the United States. Speaking to CNN's Erin Burnett on Tuesday, Puerto Rico's governor said he was "appalled and disgusted" by the video.

She is also the first mother to reach a Wimbledon's final in 38 years. To win Wimbledon, it's something really special in my career. Four Grand Slams she was forced to skip.

Mike Bryan won his record-tying 17th Grand Slam men's doubles title, and first without his brother, by teaming with fellow American Jack Sock to beat Raven Klaasen of South Africa and Michael Venus of New Zealand 6-3, 6-7 (7), 6-3, 5-7, 7-5 in the Wimbledon final.

In a role reversal from her wedding - at which Williams was a guest in May - Markle is watching her friend from the royal box.

"Kerber found the chalk with chilling frequency to become Germany's first women's champion since Steffi Graf in 1996".
