When the seeds kept tumbling at Wimbledon last week the growing feeling was that the trophy was bound to end up in Serena Williams' arms again for an eighth time at the All England Club. I think that's what I was doing in the past, I was limiting myself.
Williams' movement is far from the best on tour but her game is so well oiled that it does not matter, her ability to control proceedings ensuring she was always perfectly placed to unleash another groundstroke.
'This was not inevitable for me, I had a really hard pregnancy and I had to have multiple surgeries, I nearly didn't make it.

At 181st in the world, Williams is the lowest ranked player to reach the women's final but that number will fool no one, and especially not Kerber who was runner-up to the American in the 2016 final.
Williams took the wheel early when she broke Gorges' serve in the fifth game of the first set.
That title pushed her past Steffi Graf's record of 22 majors in the half-century professional era; Court won some of her Slams during the amateur era. Or, more to the point on this afternoon, how such a stinging serve and big groundstrokes didn't help her avoid first-round exits each of the past five years at Wimbledon. There was one brief blip to come: Williams got broken for the only time while serving for the match at 5-3.
