Meghan and Kate make it a duchess doubles at Wimbledon

On Saturday, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle will be making their first solo appearance together without their husbands, Prince William and Prince Harry, for the Ladies' Single Final at the Wimbledon Championships, Kensington Palace announced on Thursday.

"It's just a dream come true again" said Kerber during the trophy ceremony. "Serena, you're a great, great person and a champion". You're such an inspiration for all of us and I'm sure you will have your next grand slam title soon. I really can't describe it, to be honest.

This is not the first time Meghan, who is friends with Serena, attended the tennis championships.

And when she swung her racket, the measure was nearly always true. And she totally did.

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.

It is the third Grand Slam title of Kerber's career, adding to her Australian and U.S. Open triumphs in 2016.

Serena Williams gave birth 10 months ago before the Wimbledon final.

She showed immediately why she's considered a superb returner. That was also the year that Kerber reached the Wimbledon final, losing to Williams in straight sets. He'll have THREE match points.

"I honestly felt I would have done better in some of the earlier tournaments". "I think it is a completely new match", Kerber said. I have so much to look forward to and I am just getting started.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "If a match is 12-all in the fifth set, I don't think it needs to continue".

The American was bedridden for six weeks after an emergency caesarean section last September and needed several procedures after blood clots settled on her lungs. In fact, she doesn't know where they came from as she doesn't even drink beer.

Incredibly, less than a year on, she has battled into the final of a major - in what was just her fourth tournament back on the WTA Tour - while ranked at world No. 181.

Williams, however, struggled to control the game as Kerber began the rally.
