Kerber stuns Williams to win Wimbledon title

Angelique Kerber beat seven-time champion Serena Williams to win her first Wimbledon title and spoil the American's dream comeback as a mum

Germany’s Angelique Kerber stunned American Serena Williams 6-3 6-3 on Saturday to win her first Wimbledon title.

Seven-times champion Williams had been bidding to claim a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam crown but made too many errors as Kerber ran out a comfortable winner in the final.

Kerber looked understandably nervous as she served for the match at 5-3 but could celebrate when Williams netted a backhand on her first match point.
