+ US legend chases eighth All England Club title

+ Kerber beats Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3

- Who's saying what -

"It's crazy. I had a really tough delivery and multiple surgeries and almost didn't make it to be honest. I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final."

-- Serena Williams on her long road back after giving birth to her daughter in September and the complications which followed.

"I didn't know I would have such kind of traumatic thoughts, especially now that I have a daughter. I want to be around as long as I can to support her."

-- Williams on her health fears

"After each win throughout these 10 days, I've had a KitKat. I'm not going to change that now."

-- John Isner in his good luck charm in reaching a first Grand Slam semi-final at Wimbledon

"I think the Centre Court is much slower than the other courts I played before. I think she had really many advantages because of that. My shots were not that effective on such a slow court."

-- Jelena Ostapenko after losing in straight sets in her semi-final to Angelique Kerber

- Royal Box watch -

-- Tennis legend Bjorn Borg was in the best seats along with the likes of singing star Shirley Bassey and US actor Stanley Tucci

Given skill and gamesmanship are still competitive, perhaps a combo of chronic pain-injury-fitness is inhibiting the expected return to top 30. If so she needs a better physical trainer.
