Remarkably, the 36-year-old was back in a Grand Slam final just 10 months after giving birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia.
LONDON-Serena Williams has been saying it over and over and over: Wimbledon is only her fourth tournament since returning to the tour after having a baby.
"I think it's incredible that she's even had time and made the effort [to get back to that level]", she said. I saw her last match and you wouldn't guess that she only had a child 10 months ago from the way she moving and playing. I lost count after, like, four surgeries because I was in so many surgeries. We also have to see the competitor who has a 10-month-old daughter travelling with her.
"I'm really proud to be back in a grand slam final. It was quite tough but I'm happy to be through". What Federer did at the Australian Open - you prove to yourself you can win the biggest tournament in the world, or one of the biggest, and then you know you can do it again.

Looking towards King in the Centre Court Royal Box afterwards, Williams said: "Hey Billie, I got you, it's number 13 for me". But that's also what we have come to expect from Serena, who has an entire second half of her career that utterly defies logic. "That's something I have to keep reminding myself", Williams said. It is the desire to compete and be the best at the highest level, one that she has carried since she was a teenager.
She turned professional in 1995, at the age of just 14. But unlike in the quarterfinals, when she needed seven match points to win, this time it required only two, with the match ending - fittingly enough - on a forehand by Ostapenko that sailed wide.
In the driving seat, Williams, began hitting the ball cleanly and with her customary mesomorphic beauty, holding her serve and then breaking Goerges, this time to love. "Or I should say, I don't want to let her go". It is timed for release as the anticipation crests with Roger as returning champion, 10 years after their famed 2008 Wimbledon championship - an epic match so close and so reflective of their competitive balance that, in the end, the true victor was the sport itself.
You have to imagine fanciful scenarios that Williams would find hard to overcome because, at this point, she is long past being hobbled by any of the normal scenarios.
"She's carrying a message and on a platform that is so much bigger than a tournament or a sport, " said Jill Smoller, her long-time agent.

Goerges also battled back from a set down to beat Dutchwoman Kiki Bertens 3-6 7-5 6-1 in the last of the women's quarterfinals. I still have a lot of matches to win. "Just to be clear, that was just today". "I'm not exhausted at all", she said.
