Between February 2013 and July 2017, there were two women who held the No. 1 world ranking: Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber. For most of that span, the top spot belonged to Serena, who held down No. 1 for 196 weeks, but Kerber gave her some good battles and managed to tally 34 weeks at the peak of the sport.
The height of their rivalry came in 2016. They only faced off twice during that year, but both matches were Grand Slam finals, with Kerber getting the best of Serena in three sets to win the Australian Open–her first major title–and Serena getting revenge in London to win Wimbledon. Kerber later captured the US Open that year, meaning the pair of ladies held three of the four major titles at the end of 2016.
Kerber fell out of form in 2017, failing to make it past the fourth round at any major, while Williams–following her win at the 2017 Australian Open–took time off to give birth to her first child in September. But now, both are back to the top in London and playing like they haven’t missed a beat.
“It’s crazy. I don’t even know how to feel because I literally didn’t think I’d do this well in my fourth tournament back,” said Williams. “I don’t have anything to lose and I feel I can play so free. That’s what I’m doing.”
Both have been thoroughly dominant over the last two weeks. They’ve each dropped just one set–Serena against Camila Giorgi in the quarters, and Kerber against Claire Liu in the second round–and neither has played a match that has lasted more than two hours.
Ignore the seeds next to their names. This is a clash between two of the best in the sport, and it should make for a thrilling, high-quality final.
