Williams never was anxious about losing.
Williams has often blasted her rivals off Centre Court with ferocious power-hitting, but German 13th seed Goerges was sent packing with a more subtle 70-minute display featuring just 16 winners and five aces.
"To really share this feeling with her (Kerber), with a nation, I think that's something which is pretty special, " she said. "That is where I put my focus on right now, not about the results I had before". I don't know. 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. I had to have multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it to be honest.

Williams hit serves up to 118 miles per hour, delivering 10 aces, including four in one game.
"Every time I play Giorgi, she always plays that level", Williams told the BBC.
The next time Giorgi served, it did. She harbors no compunction about striving for a point-ending victor with every stroke.
At only her fourth tournament since returning from maternity leave, Williams is now just two matches away from an eighth Wimbledon title and equalling Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 majors.
