Kerber stuns Serena to win Wimbledon title

LONDON, July 14, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – Germany’s Angelique Kerber shattered Serena Williams’s dreams of an eighth Wimbledon title and record-equalling 24th Grand Slam singles trophy with a 6-3, 6-3 win in the final on Saturday.

It was Kerber’s third title at the majors to add to her Australian Open and US Open triumphs in 2016.

Williams, 36, had been attempting to win a first Grand Slam since giving birth to her daughter Olympia in September.

Kerber is the first German woman to win the Wimbledon title since Steffi Graf in 1996.
