Wimbledon 2018 -- Angelique Kerber beats Serena Williams for 3rd Grand Slam title

Angelique Kerber ripped up the script when she stunned Serena Williams 6-3 6-3 to win her first Wimbledon title on Saturday (July 14).

Angelique Kerber toppled Serena Williams in the women's singles final, winning the rematch from Williams' last Wimbledon victory in 2016. She beat Williams in the Australian Open final that year, then won that year's US Open to briefly replace her at No. 1 in the rankings.

Serena didn't enjoy a good start to the ongoing season as she withdrew from Australian Open and struggled in the Sunshine tournaments before quitting ahead of the French Open quarter-final due to complications of childbirth.

Williams is bidding for her eighth championship at the All England Club and 24th Grand Slam title in all, which would equal Margaret Court's all-time record.

"I'd just like to tell all the moms, I had such a long struggle to come back and it was really hard", Williams explained in her post-match interview. She's just getting started.

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

'To all the moms out there, I was playing for you today, ' the athlete added.

Tennis is a game of match-ups they say, and Kerber's counter-punching ways lend itself to some of the most interesting, dramatic matches.

"I think it's the experience". The American had 24 unforced errors in the match compared to five for her German opponent.

Meghan last watched her friend in 2016, and may have sat on the same court as her future sister-in-law, as Catherine and William also attended that year.

Kerber bided her time as she waited for a high lob to drop and she whacked a forehand down the line to open up her first match point. "I can, you know, come out and be a contender to win Grand Slams".

Serving at 2-3 15-30 Williams popped up a half volley and Kerber rammed a victor past her and the 11th-seeded German repeated the trick with another sweet forehand to lead 4-2. "Obviously I can compete for the long run in a Grand Slam", the 36-year-old American continued.

'I'm sure you will have your next grand slam title'.

"Not knowing how this match would go, two hours, three hours, I don't think they could put the men's semi-final behind the women because they have to come back the next day". She absorbed the power and blasted balls back in kind.

There was a time, not all that long ago, that Williams was ranked No. 1 for years at a time.

Toward the end, a reporter asked Williams how she'd turn her defeat into a happy story for her daughter.
