Serena Williams lost her match at Wimbledon this year, but luckily, she had her friends there to support her.
Immediately following her defeat against Angelique Kerber during the Ladies’ Single Final on Saturday, the tennis star gave an emotional interview that expressed her feelings about the heartbreaking loss. Meanwhile, good friend Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton offered a listening ear.

“It was such an amazing tournament for me. I was really hoping to get this far,” Williams said while visibly fighting back tears. “It’s obviously disappointing, but I can’t be disappointed. I have so much to look forward to. I’m literally just getting started.”
She added: “To all the moms out there, I was playing for you today and I tried.” These words seemed to garner a clap from the royals who stood in the stands.
Overcoming feelings of disappointment, Serena praised her opponent’s first Wimbledon win. “She’s an incredible person, Angelique is, and she’s a really good friend, so I’m really happy for her,” she said. “This is her first title and I know she’s going to really enjoy it and enjoy the moment. So congrats again. It’s amazing.”
