The stage is set for the ‘supermom’ Serena Williams to make history at the Wimbledon 2018. The 36-year-old tennis great will be playing her tenth Wimbledon final and what makes this one truly stands out is that she does it while returning from a ten-month maternity break. Serena is well on course to lift her eighth Wimbledon title at SW19 provided she crosses the last hurdle in the form of Angelique Kerber, the eighth seed from Germany. Kerber is a finalist here at Wimbledon, in fact, Serena beat her in their last meeting here in 2016. It was also the single time two players clashed on the grass court. Serena Williams enjoys a 6-2 lead over Kerber in head-to-head record. As a tennis fan, it could not get better than watching Serena Williams vs Angelique Kerber in the Wimbledon 2018 women’s singles final match. Here are all the details on the start time, live coverage on TV and live streaming online options.
Serena who has withdrawn from the fourth-round match against Maria Sharapova in French Open last month has put her best foot forward on the grass-court major tournament. The proud working mother of ten-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. dropped one set on her route to the finals. It was against Italian player Camila Giorgi in the quarter-finals, but Serena survived the first set scare and made an impressive comeback to win the match convincingly in the end. Semi-final opponent Julia Görges of Germany was no match as Williams beat her in straight sets 6-2, 6-4. The 23-grand slam winning player would hope to trounce another German, Kerber in the finals to equal the record of most number of singles’ titles in grand slams, currently held by Australian tennis great Margaret Court.
Coming to Serena’s opponent, the two-time grand slam winner (Australian Open and US Open in 2016) was denied her third title of that year by Serena at Wimbledon. It should be good enough motivation for the 30-year-old German to play her best on the day. Angelique got off to a bumpy start when she was pushed to the decider set by an 18-year-old Claire Liu. But since then, the world number 10 has not let opponents settle in the match and finished it in straight sets including 12th seed Jeļena Ostapenko, 14th seed Daria Kasatkina, and 18th seed Naomi Osaka.
