In doing so, Kerber prevented Williams from claiming an eighth title at Wimbledon and 24th from all Grand Slam tournaments, which would have equaled Margaret Court's record.
She stood slowly and applauded when Williams lost in straight sets to Germany's Angelique Kerber. She also explained that she was unsure "how I would be able to come back" after taking time off to be a new mom, and that making it to the Wimbledon final was a "great opportunity". "It was such a long way to see light at the end of the road, kind of", said Williams, who gave birth to a daughter last September, then dealt with complications involving blood clots.
"It's obviously disappointing, but I can not be disappointed, I have so much to look forward to and I am just getting started". I knew that I have to play my best tennis against a champion like Serena.
Kerber won the first set 6-3. Players like Sasnovich, Kiki Bertens and Julia Goerges have been putting together stellar runs through late a year ago and first half of this season to come up with results that they did these two weeks.
Kerber is a former No. 1 who has won two major trophies.
"I'm sure you will have your next Grand Slam title soon", said Kerber, now a three-time major champion.
"I'd just like to tell all the mums, like, I had such a long struggle to come back, and it was really hard".

Beaten but unbowed, Serena Williams is vowing to continue her relentless pursuit of tennis's most elusive feat despite falling tantalisingly short at Wimbledon. An attacking Bencic and Jelena Ostapenko, a Stephens who can convert defence to attack with her state-of-the-art footwork, and a canny Daria Kasatkina or Sasnovich with their abilities with the racquet.
She was bumped up to 25th seed courtesy of her seven titles at the All England Club - the most recent in 2016 - and more than justified that decision. "I didn't know I would have such, kind of, traumatic thoughts".
Prior to that, Williams admitted she prayed and "cried a little bit" when she stopped breastfeeding Alexis. "I was really happy to get this far" Serena Williams said speaking to the BBC.
"I feel like I have a ways to go", Williams said.
