Super-mom Serena Williams into 10th Wimbledon final

Ostapenko has spent less time on court en route to the semi-finals

Angelique Kerber will try to seek revenge against Serena Williams, who beat her in the Wimbledon final in 2016.

Williams will be seeking a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title and her first since giving birth in September.

"Whatever happens, honestly", Williams said, "it's an incredible effort from me".

"To hear people say, "Oh, she's a favourite". the last 16 months, I've played four tournaments, and was carrying another human half that time. That's something I have to keep reminding myself", Williams said.

Germany's Angelique Kerber celebrates defeating Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko in the Wimbledon semifinals.

Kerber is a former No. 1 and a two-time major champion, both coming in 2016 at the Australian Open and U.S. Open. Against Naomi Osaka in the third round, she cracked 23 winners to 5 unforced errors, unsettling the youngster with her aggression.

We've caught glimpses of them in public together at royal events, but we'll finally get to see how friendly Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton really are when the two step out this weekend.

Williams watched Wimbledon from afar previous year when her sister Venus lost to Spain's Garbine Muguruza but, in truth, it feels as if she has never been away after she dropped only one set as she progressed to a 10th Wimbledon final. However, Clijsters completed a remarkable sporting comeback to win the 2009 US Open just 18 months after giving birth - becoming the first mother to win a Grand Slam singles title since Evonne Goolagong in 1980.

"I lost count after, like, four surgeries", said Williams, who has been wearing compression leggings this fortnight as a precaution.

HTC’s blockchain phone, Exodus, coming this autumn
It is also known that HTC is partnering together with CryptoKitties , now the second most popular dApp game (second to Etheremon). HTC says that its blockchain smartphone is called Exodus and that it's going to be released in the third quarter of this year.

Netflix's 2018 Emmy nominations vs HBO, Hulu, and the networks
Netflix has tripled its Emmy nomination count in three years to become the most recognised network in United States television. And of course HBO's Game Of Thrones which, for yet another year, leads the pack with a whopping 22 nominations.

Double murderer's execution could be halted
Investigators deduced that Dozier had offered to help Mr Miller obtain ingredients to make meth in exchange for US$12,000. His decapitated torso was found in a suitcase in an apartment building trash bin, also missing lower legs and hands.

When she won that 23rd Slam in Melbourne a year ago, breaking the record for major singles titles in the Open era that she held with Steffi Graf, there was a sense of urgency about it, at least to her.

"This is not inevitable for me".

When I start this year, a goal was to be playing good in majors, in the Grand Slams, and to reach finals again.

Williams' match against Goerges was even until 2-all, 30-all.

The outcry over her unseeded status at the French Open-she didn't lack points for failing to win or because of injury, but rather because she was busy for over a year having a baby-led to the USTA reexamining the ranking and seeding process. With 23 major singles titles to her credit, Williams could easily have made a decision to call it a career at age 36.

Nearly decade older than Ostapenko, the 30-year-old's experience and patient waiting game paid rich dividends as Kerber only offered up seven mistakes from her end. She's won 89 percent of her service games and 80 percent of points on first serve. She was solid in every facet of the game.

"It's such a great feeling to be back in the final".

As a medical precaution, given her history of blood clots, Williams wore a body-hugging compression suit during play in Paris. "It was quite tough but I'm happy to be through".
