Serena started out looking very good! Her serve was on point for the entire match. She won ALL service games. The wind started to pick up in the 2nd set but she overcame that.
Kerber won more of the rallies especially the long ones. But towards the end of both sets when it mattered, Serena won the important rallies and pressured Kerber to make unforced errors. Kerber made very few unforced errors. It was quite a competitive and clean match on both sides. Spectacular tennis.
Angelique Kerber met the real Serena Williams today and when Serena plays her best tennis, there are no answers, she is unbeatable.
Kudos to Kerber for keeping her composure and playing out the match with quality shots. We look forward to seeing her as the future of women’s tennis with Garbiñe Muguruza.
Serena now finally ties Steffi Graf with the most Grand Slams in the Open era, 22. Suga believes she can keep it going a bit more. Margaret Court still stands at 24. Afterall, Serena IS the GOAT. She said it herself, not only is she one of the best female athletes of all time but one of the best athletes of all time.
Congratulations to Serena Williams who is also immediately ready to take on the Doubles Final and win one for ‘V’, her sister, Venus Williams, which will be played later today.
