Winner Angelique Kerber of Germany and runner-up Serena Williams of The United States pose with the trophies after the Ladies' Singles final on day twelve of the Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 14, 2018 in London, England.
Despite so much Grand Slam success, despite holding a 6-2 career edge against Kerber entering the day, Williams played tightly right from the outset.
Williams had dominated the 2016 final between the pair but this time her 30-year-old rival returned and reversed the result from two years ago to win in 65 minutes with determined shot-making.
Kerber had an incredibly impressive tournament before her win, and her season was equally solid, CBS Sports reported.
This is Kerber's first Wimbledon title following her 6-3, 6-3 victory over seven-time champion Williams.

That gives it plenty of room to grow in a Chinese market that still is expanding, while USA and European demand is flat. While tax credits have helped boost electric-vehicle demand in the USA , they remain only 1.1percent of the market.
However, Kerber put on a textbook display of defense and accuracy to nullify her opponent's power and secure a 6-3 6-3 triumph. "I'm literally just getting started so I'll look forward to it".

Wimbledon 2018: Angelique Kerber denies Serena Williams to win third Grand Slam
As you may know already, this was Serena's comeback to the field after she welcomed her first baby with husband, Alexis Ohanian . Over the course of 2016, the powerful lefty won two majors and played in the final of another, and rose to No. 1 in the world.
Kerber and Williams have always shared a mutual respect, and it's a joy to watch them play each other. "I know she's going to really enjoy it and enjoy the moment". It's obviously disappointing, but I can't be disappointed.
"I look forward to continue to be out here and do what I do best".
Graf's 22 Grand Slam titles spanned 12 years. She struggled with her movement, and her serve, as evidence by the fact she lost 4 of 9 service games and just 34% of return points, while also firing 24 errors.
"It is a great statement [Williams] is giving all moms, that you can get back to [being] even a very elite athlete", said former pro Mary Joe Fernandez, a mother of two who has coached Serena and her sister Venus in Fed Cup competition and now serves as an ESPN analyst.
She said: "I think without 2017 I couldn't win this tournament".
