Williams was forced to withdraw from the French Open with a strained muscle, and is in danger of losing her in her second grand slam of the year.
At the conclusion of the final both players were incredibly gracious towards one another, with Serena more or less showing she wasn't near her best but gave it her all regardless, and Kerber giving credit to Williams for her comeback and all of her career accomplishments.
After giving birth to her daughter, Olympia, on September 1, Williams dealt with health complications that included blood clots and led to what she said were multiple operations.
"It's insane. I don't even know how to feel, you know, because literally, I didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", Williams said according to ESPN. "I'm literally just getting started so I'll look forward to it".
"Kerber found the chalk with chilling frequency to become Germany's first women's champion since Steffi Graf in 1996".
Williams dropped serve three times in the opening set and although she tried to fire herself up in the second she played a loose game at 2-3 and Kerber broke with a running pass.

Instead, the pressure of her new status and trying to back up what she had achieved crushed Kerber, and last season she won only six matches at the four slams combined. "I think that was part of what I had to learn after 2016, a process I had to go through".
Kerber, 30, made just five unforced errors compared to Williams' 24 as the German native reversed the result of the 2016 final.
They've played each other a total of eight times in the past, and Williams leads 6-2. "I can, you know, come out and be a contender to win Grand Slams". It was as if the capacity Centre Court crowd expected Williams to smash a few more 125 miles per hour aces, which she did to close out the fifth game of the first set, turn her fate 180 degrees and accomplish something no other top-25 seed was able to do against Kerber this fortnight: stop her.
Days after our baby girl was born, I kissed my wife goodbye before surgery and neither of us knew if she would be coming back.
She said: "I think without 2017 I couldn't win this tournament. She's an incredible person and a really good friend so I'm really happy for her".
Here's a closer look at the full outfit, but we'll continue to update as better photos come in.
Winning Wimbledon with Olympia at the tournament with her was supposed to be the crowning glory of her return to the top.
