Williams, 36, fell short of her eighth Wimbledon trophy and a chance to score a record 24th Grand Slam title at Wimbledon.

The match between Kerber and Williams was stalled for over an hour Saturday, until after the men’s semifinal between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal was completed.

Saturday’s tournament was Williams’ fourth appearance since she began her comeback after a 14-month hiatus. Williams came into the fortnight ranked No. 181 and was seeded 25th at Wimbledon because of her previous success at the event.

Williams’ victory would have made her the fourth mother ever to win a Grand Slam event.

Williams gave birth to her daughter Alexis Olympia in September 2017. She had to deal with a health scare after the emergency cesarean section when small blood clots were found on her lungs, CNN reported.

The last time Williams and Kerber met in a Grand Slam final was at Wimbledon in 2016. That year, Williams won her seventh major title on grass, 7-5, 6-3.

That was Williams’ second straight Wimbledon title, won in the early stages of her pregnancy. She sat out last year’s grass-court tournament after winning the Australian Open several months earlier.

Her first Grand Slam tournament was the French Open. Williams won three matches before withdrawing because of an injured chest muscle.

Trump meets Theresa May a day after his criticism of British prime minister in tabloid

President Donald Trump met with British Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday, one day after he criticized her approach to Brexit in an interview with a major British tabloid. Trump also said London’s mayor was doing a “terrible job,” blaming him for terror attacks in the city, according to an interview published by The Sun.

In The Sun, Trump said he told May “how to do it,” but said the British prime minister ignored his advice. Trump said May’s hope of a free trade deal with the United States could be jeopardized by her approach, CNN reported.

"I told her how to do it. That will be up to her to say. But I told her how to do it. She wanted to go a different route," Trump said in an interview that was posted by The Sun.

Trump’s comments were published several hours after the president met May in a formal ceremony and reception at Bleinheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill. He is expected to meet with May for a working lunch Friday and will then meet Queen Elizabeth II today at Windsor Castle.

Trump said May "didn't listen" to his opinions on how she should handle the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union. May’s decision was met with criticism from members of her own party, including foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who resigned Monday, CNN reported.

"She should negotiate the best way she knows how, but it's too bad what's going on," Trump told The Sun.

Trump’s interview came after a contentious meeting in Brussels with NATO members. 

Also in the interview, Trump slammed London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, for his handling of terrorist attacks on the British capital.

"You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London," Trump told The Sun, adding that Khan had "done a very bad job on terrorism."

The President also said that the anti-Trump protests about his trip made him feel unwelcome in London, the tabloid reported. Protesters flew a 20-foot blimp depicting Trump as an angry baby, CNN reported.

Sarah Wollaston, Conservative member of Parliament, said Trump was “determined to insult” May, The Guardian reported.

“The divisive, dog-whistle rhetoric in his Sun interview is repulsive,” Wollaston told the newspaper. “If signing up to the Trump world view is the price of a deal, it’s not worth paying.”

On the other side of the British political spectrum, Ben Bradshaw of Labour said courting Trump was “humiliating.” 

“Our prime minister is so weak she still rolls out the red carpet for a man who does nothing but insult her. Humiliating,” Bradshaw told The Guardian.

A giant balloon of Trump clad in a diaper in a 20-foot air-filled balloon went airborne Friday morning over Parliament, beginning a day of protests, CNN reported.

The orange-colored “Trump baby” blimp was inflated in Parliament Square at about 9.30 a.m. and rose about 100 feet in the air. It was grounded after an hour, CNN reported.
