Ser­ena ready for royal date with Meghan Markle at Wim­ble­don

Mid Day - - SPORT -

Ser­ena Wil­liams thinks of her­self as Wim­ble­don roy­alty and the seven-time cham­pion will be cheered on by her friend the Duchess of Sus­sex in Satur­day’s fi­nal against An­gelique Ker­ber. Just two months af­ter at­tend­ing her friend Meghan’s wed­ding to the Duke of Sus­sex in Wind­sor, Ser­ena will per­form in front of the new royal on Cen­tre Court.

“There’s word on the street,” Wil­liams said when asked if Meghan would at­tend the fi­nal. Told that Kens­ing­ton Palace had an­nounced the Duchess would be there, Ser­ena smiled and said: “There you go. It came from the palace that she is com­ing on Satur­day.” The US star is so close to Meghan that she post­poned her preWim­ble­don me­dia du­ties to go with her to watch her hus­band Prince Harry play polo in Ascot. Two weeks on from that out­ing, Wil­liams has reached her first Grand Slam fi­nal since be­com­ing a mother, only 10 months af­ter giv­ing her birth to daugh­ter Olympia.
