Goerges could only find the tram lines with a forehand down the line as Williams forced the first break, and a swirling cross-court forehand proved too hard for her to return as the first set went the way of the imperious American. She is the second woman to accomplish this in the Open Era following Chris Evert, who played in a major final for 14 straight years between 1973 and 1986. I didn't think I was going to make it at one point.
Told that Kensington Palace had announced the Duchess would be there, Serena smiled and said: "There you go".
The German attacked the biggest chink in Ostapenko's armour - her second serve, which is weak and ineffectual.
"Pregnancy will not be penalized", USTA spokesman Chris Widmaier said last month.
Serena Williams dropped the opening set but won against Camila Giorgi.
Well, it looks like the USTA won't have to worry about it.
Judge orders list of children separated from parents at border
Sabraw has also ordered the government to reunite almost 3,000 children five and older with their parents by July 26. Once these families are reunified, it's not clear where ICE can legally - or feasibly - detain them.
Brazil vs Belgium: Tite happy with ‘below-par’ Neymar
Brazil coach Tite dismissed talk that his team is the favourite to win the match against Belgium , let alone the World Cup . You are a Brazilian journalist? He added: "From what I have seen, Brazil are compact everywhere".
Man Utd to rival Liverpool for Nabil Fekir
As noted by Chozas, the release clause in his deal stands at a staggering €700 million (£617 million). Real Madrid are willing to sell Marco Asensio to Liverpool , it has been revealed.
The engagement will be a chance for Meghan to catch up with her friend Serena Williams, who has won the tournament seven times and is taking on Angelique Kerber in this year's final. "I couldn't even walk to my mail box, so for me to back in a Wimbledon final isn't normal nor is it inevitable".
However, unforced errors were her downfall and particularly costly given Williams' unerring accuracy and solid service games. She knows how to play on this court. "I know that she is always pushing you to the limits".
Two months away from turning 37, and just 10 months after giving birth to her first child, this extraordinary athlete now has the opportunity to relive the 2016 Wimbledon final, when she played and defeated Kerber.
"When I start this year, a goal was to be playing good in majors, in the Grand Slams, and to reach finals again". She went on a half-hour run in which she took the last four games of the first set and took a 3-0 lead in the second.
It took Kerber two tries to serve out the victory, getting broken to 5-2. The first of the ladies' semifinals was all about the former finalist Kerber's serving power, which was up at 87 per cent for most of the match, but sunk to (77 per cent 49/64) by the end of the clash.
If she wins on Saturday, Williams will become the first to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish since Goolagong triumphed 38 years ago. "I'm happy and proud to be back in a Grand Slam final, it's what I was working for since I was in a kid". "In a way, it's by far the toughest, but in a way it's by far the best".
