Meghan Markle looks deflated as friend Serena Williams LOSES Wimbledon final

Kate and Meghan to have girls day out at Wimbledon to cheer Serena Williams

Williams played a total of seven matches in 2018 before arriving at the All England Club, and she'll be playing her seventh match in the last two weeks when she meets 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber of Germany in the Wimbledon final on Saturday.

Kerber defeated Serena 6-3 6-3, making the 23-time Grand Slam victor wait until the US Open to compete for her record-equalling 24 Grand Slam titles.

Williams was aiming to match Margaret Court's record of 24 grand slam singles titles after a remarkable run just 10 months on from the birth of her first child.

After winning her semifinal against Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3, Kerber was asked what she sees across the net when she goes up against Williams. "But I just tried to improve my game, not think too much about the results".

Williams played doubles with her sister Venus Williams at the Fed Cup in February. "I'm literally just getting started, so I look forward to it". "I learned a lot from a year ago, with all the expectations, all the things I go through".

"It's obviously disappointing, but I can not be disappointed, I have so much to look forward to and I am just getting started". However, her efforts were not enough to reverse the course of the game as the tenacious Kerber regained her composure to seal a 6-3 win in the opening set.

That success came despite having been match point down in the first round to Japan's Misaki Doi. I'm really, really sure.

The Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex will attend Wimbledon this weekend to cheer on Meghan Markle's close friend Serena Williams in the women's singles final.

And even with all that, she only lost a Wimbledon final 6-3, 6-3 to a future tennis Hall of Famer.

Although the second Saturday is now ladies' final day, centre court ticket holders, and the royal box watchers, will have the small matter of the men's semi-finals to watch before the ladies can get under way. "I can, you know, come out and be a contender to win Grand Slams". We have to admit that it's most likely not easy going against one of the best and most publicly known tennis players in the world but today, Angelique proved she's well on her way to joining Serena at the top in history.

Williams is 23-6 in Grand Slam finals, and Kerber is responsible for handing her one of those rare defeats, at the 2016 Australian Open.

Kerber is the first German woman to win the Wimbledon title since Steffi Graf in 1996.

But Williams seemed unsure how best to break down Kerber, and the next point saw her inexplicably pat a volley back that should have been the simplest of put-aways and pay the price.
