Angelique Kerber Upsets Serena Williams For Third Career Major

Angelique Kerber made sure that Serena Williams didn’t win her 24th career Grand Slam title, which would have tied the All-time milestone held by Margaret Court, at her expense.

Kerber upset Williams 6-3, 6-3 on Saturday to win her third career major.

“It was such an amazing tournament for me,” Williams said after the match (h/t ESPN). “I was really happy to get this far. It’s obviously disappointing, but I can’t be disappointed. I have so much to look forward to. I’m literally just getting started.”

“I’m just me, that’s all I can be,” Williams continued, referring to playing as a mother “To all the moms out there, I was playing for you today, and I tried. Angelique played really well, played out of her mind.”

“I knew that I had to play my best tennis against a champion like Serena,” said Kerber.

“This is something special,” Kerber said. “And to hold this trophy now, it is something that I can’t describe.”
