  • LIVE UPDATES: Williams vs Kerber in #Wimbledon ladies' final

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.

Ten months after the hard birth of daughter Alexis Olympia the 36-year-old Williams had powered into her 10th Wimbledon final and looked poised for an eighth crown.

Germany's Angelique Kerber poses with the winner's trophy, the Venus Rosewater Dish, after her women's singles final victory over United States player Serena Williams. "It's obviously disappointing, but I can't be disappointed".

Here she is on day two of the tournament that year.

"I knew I had to play my best tennis against a champion like Serena", Kerber said. She wore special compression leggings as a precaution during Wimbledon, just the fourth tournament of her comeback.

The tennis star told a press conference: "We've always had a wonderful friendship and every year for a couple years she comes out to Wimbledon, has supported me".

Kerber, known for her defensive style, came to the match with one plan in mind - keep the point going and exploit Williams' lack of mobility around the court.

Also supporting Williams on Centre Court are golfer Tiger Woods, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, and Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour. I have so much to look forward to and I am just getting started.

Sarri: Chelsea appoint former Napoli boss to replace Conte
The 26-year-old was a star player for Maurizio Sarri's side that pushed Juventus all the way in the Serie A title race last season.

But if she emerges victorious, she will equal Margaret Court's grand slam singles record as she claims her eighth Wimbledon title.

"I was trying to play my best to play for you guys".

It's Kerber's third Grand Slam win after taking the Australian Open and US Open title in 2016.

"For all the mums out there I was playing for you today", Williams said.

Kerber won 6-3, 6-3, in a match that was never really in doubt.

She kept nagging away at Serena and induced more miscues from the American in the sixth game of the second set.

Meghan and Williams first met in 2014, at a charity football match. I'm really, really sure.

The usual 2 p.m. start time was pushed back as Novak Djokovic's and Rafael Nadal's semifinal was played to a finish having been carried over from Friday.
