It's nearly as if Serena Williams never left. Following the baby's delivery, Williams had a number of health issues, including a pulmonary embolism and a hematoma, which led to her having multiple surgeries. She's a champion. That's why she is there where she is now'.
"It's insane. I don't even know how to feel, you know, because literally, didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", said Williams who returned to tournament play in March after a 13-month absence.
"When I don't have anything to lose, I can just play so free and that's what I'm doing".

It has all meant that Williams, who will be watched on Saturday from the Royal Box on Centre Court by her good friend the Duchess of Sussex, is the favourite for a title that will make her the fourth Grand Slam-winning mum of the Open era.
"Believe me, I know she wants to go out there and win".
"This is not inevitable for me". So I remember I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final. "I'm just enjoying every moment", Williams added.
