  • Julia Görges has advanced to the Wimbledon semifinals

Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, watched on as wife Williams triumphed in her semi-final on Thursday, beating Julia Goerges 6-2 6-4 in one hour 10 minutes.

Williams is the lowest ranked player to reach the women's final but that number will fool no one, and especially not Kerber who was runner-up to the American in the 2016 final.

The 36-year year old triumphantly returned to the grass courts of Wimbledon to reach the tournament final since returning from the enforced layoff.

Kerber used a seven-game run to seize control of her semifinal and collect a 6-3, 6-3 victory over the 12th-seeded Ostapenko. "For me, I only see joy out of it", Williams said with a smile. Four tournaments after her pregnancy, Serena is back where he'd always wanted to be, in contention to tie Australia's Margaret Court on 24 Grand Slam singles titles, the all-time record. "I had a really tough delivery, and I had to have multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it, to be honest", Williams said.

The old adage of feel your way in to a match and start solidly does not appear to apply to Ostapenko who put together a insane sequence to start her first Wimbledon semi-final.

The semifinal between Williams and Goerges began on a high note, marked by high quality serving and a robust exchange of ground-strokes.

Williams, seems to have taken the lead from her 10-month daughter in her approach to her comeback that has taken her to a 10th Wimbledon final.

"Yeah, I think she is coming back, for sure". There was a time I could barely walk to my mailbox. Her crosscourt forehand burned the German, who failed to get around it with that big swing.

Williams is playing an extremely high level of tennis, and that she's doing so just months after her return from giving birth to her first child is simply remarkable.

That title pushed her past Steffi Graf's record of 22 majors in the half-century professional era; Court won some of her Slams during the amateur era.

"Whatever happens, honestly it's an incredible effort from me. and good motivation to keep going for the rest of my career", Williams added. "I think that she steps up her game [against me]", Goerges said.

Kerber looked anxious and Ostapenko had a point to close to within a game but she dumped a backhand return into net and then coughed up two more errors to hand Kerber victory. "We saw that she improved every single match she's playing here".

On her third opportunity, the German drilled a winning return and raised her clenched fist into the clean Wimbledon sky.

"I don't know if it's been the toughest, because I have Olympia".
