It was Williams’ 26th Grand Slam final in her career but the second loss to Kerber who defeated her way back in 2012 in Cincinnati, although her record against Kerber going into the game stood better than her opponent (Serena had a 5-1 record against Kerber) and had won their last four matches.

Kerber defeated Williams in three sets to clinch the title in a tough game in which the young German displayed enough tenacity to stand the awesome record of the American.
