>> It could be one for the books. Wimbledon's women's final on Saturday, sees Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber face to face for the singles crown. But there could be more at stake than just a title. Williams, the world number one will try to equal Steffi Graf's record of 22 Grand Slam titles.
00:00:20
While Kerber, will seek to become the first German woman to win the Wimbledon singles, since guess who? That's right, Steffi Graf. Reuters, Jonathan Crane, has been following the tournament.>> Yeah, in the womans singles final, we'll see Serena Williams taking on Angelique Kerber now in the run up to the final in the semi-finals.
00:00:40
All the talk was a possible Williams final, it would have been the first since 2009. The fifth, that's what everyone was looking to but Angelique Kerber has spoiled that party. She was very professional in her performance against Venus Williams. A very thorough performance from her. Maybe benefiting from the fact that everyone was talking about an all Williams final.
00:00:59
She's kind of gone under the radar at these championships. So this will be a repeat of the Australian Open final, which, of course, Kerber won, she beat Serena Williams. Serena Williams has been on 21 Grand Slam titles a while now, she's chasing Steffi Graf's number of 22. So maybe that's gonna playing on her mind as she goes into the final.
00:01:19
She's maybe looked slightly different as a player. She's not maybe as confident as she used to be. Commentators have said she's been looking up at her box more. So we don't know what effects some of these final defeats has had. Of course, as well, at the US Open last year she was knocked out in the semi-final stage.
00:01:35
But she loves Wimbledon. She's very comfortable on the grass. So you would still put her as the favorite.>> But I think that's what makes me different. That's what makes me Serena.
