Neunmal traf Angelique Kerber schon auf Serena Williams - dreimal in einem Grand-Slam-Finale. Seit dem. I Es ist unglaublich, Freunde. Kerber marschiert hier durch ihr Aufschlagspiel. Hier kann gleich was ganz Großes passieren.
But then double faults! Well, it goes without saying that she cannot dish out freebies like that to Serena. And the situation becomes worst when Kerber, under pressure on the baseline, hits into the net.
Another break point. Saves it, moving Williams around well and forcing her to hit into the net. Weak second serve and Williams climbs in with relish, thumping return winner.
Third break point. But the second serve takes a huge kick, spits off a length you might say. Serena cannot get it back.
Williams groundstroke long and wide gives Kerber A AGAIN the first serve fails. Serena drop volleys, Kerber scrambles for it, net cord goes her way and Williams hits long.
Game Kerber, but my goodness she cannot hope to win if every service game is a battle like this one. K erber won the toss and elected to receive Serena respectful of the Wimbledon dress code: All-white headphones.
W illiams and Kerber have walked out onto Centre Court, and we're hopefully in for a cracker. A sub-plot to the build-up to this match has been the always thorny issue of whether women deserve the same prize money as the men.
After her minute semi-final thrashing of Elena Vesnina, Williams dismissed the idea that women should not be paid the same.
Williams' victory was one of the fastest singles semi-final at Wimbledon since official records began and the thumping regurgitated debate about prize money in the men's and women's tournaments.
W illiams' domination came in stark contrast to the two thrilling men's quarter-finals on Centre Court on Wednesday, which both went to five sets as Roger Federer fought back to beat Marin Cilic and Andy Murray held off a late comeback from Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.
Together with Angelique Kerber's win over Venus Williams on Thursday, the two Centre Court matches took exactly two hours in total, while Federer and Murray's victories lasted a combined seven hours and 11 minutes.
Wimbledon has awarded equal prize money to men and women since and Serena Williams insists that remains the correct decision.
Actually maybe younger, because I have a picture where I'm in a stroller. I think Venus is actually pushing me, and we're on the tennis court.
I haven't had a life. I don't think I would deserve to be paid less because of my sex, or anyone else for that matter in any job.
I don't think that it's the right topic, to speak about that. It's not about that. Women's matches are tough, I can say. We deserve what we have right now.
K erber will now face Williams on Saturday, in a repeat of the Australian Open final in January when the German produced a stunning upset to clinch the title.
It doesn't matter if you win or if you lose, that's sport. You never know what happens at the end. At the end only two can win. You never know if it's two hours or, at the end, eight hours.
A reminder that a win for Williams would tie her with Steffi Graf's Open-Era record of 22 grand slams, and give her the chance to break the record at the US Open in September.
It would also be Williams' seventh Wimbledon singles title. Were Kerber to win, it would be her second grand slam title and put to bed any suggestion she's a one slam wonder.
O n the subject of Serena chasing down Graf's record, have a read of Simon Briggs ' excellent piece previewing this match and outlining the pressure Williams is under.
For Kerber, there is an extra subplot involving her friend, idol and mentor Steffi Graf. No wonder Williams was so brusque on Thursday when asked what that magic figure of 22 would mean to her.
I don't talk about that anymore. T he big narrative going into this one of course is whether Williams can avenge the defeat she suffered to Kerber at the Australian Open final in January.
On that day Kerber was at her durable best, and she came up with a number of incredible passing shots to leave Serena helpless at the net.
She'll have to play as well today, and possibly even better, because Williams has looked formidable since a mini wobble against Christina McHale in the third round.
T he American is serving like a dream and looks in the mood to punish any mistakes her opponents are making. Against Serena's sister Venus on Thursday, Kerber got away with a pretty dreadful serving performance, whereas she'll be pulverised if she does the same today.
But the German has been playing very well in these past couple of weeks and is yet to lose a set. A fternoon all, the players are due on court at 2pm, but first of all have a read of our preview below, which features everything you could possibly wish to know.
After a minute knock up and some pomp and pageantry the real action will start, and the match will start at around 2.
Oh, very much so. Serena has won five of the seven meetings between the two, but its their most recent meeting that sticks in the memory bank.
The Australian Open final in January was a classic encounter , with Kerber winning in three sets to claim her first grand slam title.
I made a lot of errors. She made little to no unforced errors. I felt like I could have played better. I felt like she played great. She came out swinging, ready to win.
She was fearless. That's something I learned. When I go into a final, I, too, need to be fearless like she was. I will just try to go out there with a lot of confidence, trying to play my best tennis and trying to give everything I can in the final.
If Serena serves at her best , then Kerber will have a massive job on her hands to even stay close to the world No 1. B ut if Kerber can neutralise the serve, as she did in Melbourne, and turn it into a more attritional battle, she could well have the edge.
Kerber is one of the most durable players on the tour, and the Australian Open final was decided by her ability to hit passing shots on the run and stay in rallies that she looked out of.
Serena has not one but two finals to contest on Saturday and will join up with sister Venus for the women's doubles decider against Hungary's Timea Babos and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan.
Winning titles together is even more important to the sisters than separately so expect them to add yet more silverware to their collection.

H2H Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. It is often said that the German tennis boom of the late s — when Boris Becker and Steffi Graf were at their peak — provided the finance for the redevelopment of the Wimbledon grounds because of the amazing sums broadcasters such as RTL were prepared to pay for television rights.
I just remember that everybody was playing in white on the grass court. I think Wimbledon is something special. I think it's traditional. To win here is forever.
Nobody can take the title away from me now. She plays an understated game, too, with a shot put-style serve that barely gets over mph, and a frying-pan forehand.
But those legs! They used to be known as the second strongest on the tour, behind those of the Amazonian Williams. Yet while Williams continues to work her way back towards optimal physical conditioning, Kerber has become the ultimate roadrunner.
How do you beat Williams? The evidence suggests that it is not the big-hitters who usually get the job done. It is those who run every ball down and force her to play an extra shot or three.
Kim Clijsters, back in the day, had success with this tenacious approach. So did Jelena Jankovic. But Kerber has now beaten Williams twice in major finals — a boast no one except sister Venus Williams has ever been able to make before.
T he previous instance came at the Australian Open final, when Kerber touched out a , , victory that left a significant psychological imprint.
That remains the only time Williams has lost a major final in three sets, and it established a precedent. Williams has made two comebacks since the complicated birth of her daughter Olympia in September.
The first one — which came in Indian Wells and Miami in March — was essentially a toe-in-the-water exercise. The second, which began at Roland Garros seven weeks ago, had previously delivered nine straight wins and one withdrawal, on account of the right pectoral injury she sustained in Paris.
But how often had Williams been tested? At Wimbledon, she had dropped only one previous set and that came against Camila Giorgi, a fast-swinging, short-rally sort of player.
The obdurate Kerber provided a dramatic contrast, and required Williams to cover so much more ground. She was breathing hard from early on and the absence of many cheap points gave her little chance to recover.
K erber proved herself to be the female Novak Djokovic here as she returned serve with extraordinary accuracy. In this match, 80 per cent came back, and once the baseline rallies began, Kerber was irresistible.
Early in the second set, Williams tried to rouse herself. But Kerber dodged out of the way, just as she dodged trouble all afternoon.
The ball flew long in what felt like a metaphor for the match. Her answer, like her on-court interview, showed great poise. But if you look at it that way, it was probably really the only way to schedule it.
T he pair share a joke and smile warmly at one another. What a performance that was from Angelique Kerber. I loved every second playing in front of you guys.
Thank you so much for the support. Without you I wouldn't be here so thank you. S he smiles broadly and says: "It was such an amazing tournament for me.
I was really happy to get this far. It's obviously disappointing but I have so much to look forward to. For all the mums out there I tried to do it for all of you.
W illiams looks on impassively after warmly embracing Kerber after the final point. K erber starts the game with an excellent serve out wide for , before Williams misses an absolute sitter of a drive volley for Oh my, how on earth did she miss that?
Kerber two points from the win. A very nervy rally ensues and ends with Kerber failing to chase down a drop shot. It's and Kerber's arm looks like it weighs about a ton.
Serena then pulverises a 74mph Kerber second serve and it's But Kerber responds brilliantly with a forehand winner to bring up a championship point at And she takes it!
Williams nets a backhand return, and Kerber is the Wimbledon champion! W illiams isn't going to give this up lightly.
