Serena Williams will be cheered on, albeit quietly and politely from the Royal Box, by her close friend Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex, during Saturday’s Wimbledon final.

“If there was a Wimbledon royalty, I would like to believe I would be Wimbledon royalty because I’ve done pretty well here in the past,” Williams told reporters on Thursday.

The tennis great made the remark as she stood one win away from winning an eighth Wimbledon title.

“Not even once actually,” said Williams, who is back contesting a Wimbledon final just 10 months after suffering multiple complications, following the birth of her daughter Alexis Olympia.

The way in which she has surged through to a 10th Wimbledon final, and 30th overall in the majors, so soon after becoming a mother has been particularly pleasing for her.

“A lot of people were saying, ‘Oh, she should be in the final,” added Williams, who has not been beaten at the All England Club since 2014.

The 13-month maternity break has left her with a world ranking of 181, making her the lowest ranked player ever to contest a women’s final.

LONDON – Serena Williams will be cheered on, albeit quietly and politely from the Royal Box, by her close friend Meghan Markle, the new Duchess of Sussex, during Saturday’s Wimbledon final but when it comes to tennis royalty, there will be only one queen on court.

“If there was a Wimbledon royalty, I would like to believe I would be Wimbledon royalty because I’ve done pretty well here in the past,” Williams told reporters on Thursday as she stood one win away from winning an eighth Wimbledon title.

“To be perfectly honest, I haven’t thought about that this tournament. Not even once actually,” said Williams, who is back contesting a Wimbledon final just 10 months after suffering multiple complications following the birth of her daughter Alexis Olympia.

Where that number will end by the time Williams finally calls time on her career is anyone’s guess but the way in which she has surged through to a 10th Wimbledon final, and 30th overall in the majors, so soon after becoming a mother has been particularly pleasing for her.

“It’s no secret I had a super tough delivery. I lost count after like four surgeries because I was in so many surgeries. It”. “Was just routine every day, I had to have a new surgery,” said the 36-year-old, who has been playing with flesh colored compression tights as she bids to become the first mother to win the Wimbledon title since Evonne Goolagong in 1980.

“Final,” added Williams, who has not been beaten at the All England Club since 2014.

The 13-month maternity break has left her with a world ranking of 181, making her the lowest ranked player ever to contest a women’s final.
