a wimbledon title beating american tennis legend serena williams and here with me in the studio to break it all down is nick mechanic life force nick good to see you so i heard earlier that kara described this win as a dream come true how did she do it she's been fantastic for this tournament she talked just one sat on the way to the final that was in the second round is a quick match but it took about an hour and five minutes apiece really williams but she's found the form that she had in two thousand and sixteen when she won the australian open the u.s. open and watch the final of wimbledon where she lost to syria with him so she finally got the better of her this time around let's see how she won her third grand slam title. one never won here the other has seven wimbledon titles to her name but she found she kept after it's over ruled by serene williams as the occasion on center court she didn't show it the germans tactic of forcing her opponent to make errors pay dividends in the first set and the williams tightened up her game in the second it was too little too late i prefer out
12:10 am
of the ground when her victory was confirmed one champion congratulating a new one at the next character is the first german woman seemed steffi graf in one thousand nine hundred ninety six to get her hands on the wimbledon title. so really an exciting day for actually a camera some disappointment of course for serena williams but it must be said she just had a baby ten months ago i mean even this if she meant is really remarkable isn't it absolutely incredible she's only right twenty fifth of this tournament even to make a tournament without having had a baby within the last year to make the final is incredible enough she hadn't got past the last sixteen in the previous four toward him and she taken part in and of course yes it was a big disappointment but she said at the time this is for all the mothers out there it's true you can you can see if you put your mind to it what you can achieve and it is incredible september first of last year she gave birth to alexis limpia and then ten and a half months later he's she is the final of wimbledon and it just goes to show that serena williams is without
12:11 am
a doubt the best in the world of tennis you have very inspiring for all of us mothers i can say that now. there was another major sporting event today can tell you at our place we were flipping back and forth between the two channels watching the tennis and then of course also watching world cup soccer belgium winning third place knocking england right out to nail tell us about that match but then when he anybody who's expecting more than two goals today will be bitterly disappointed because given has for belgium as you mentioned winning to nil the first goal coming in the fourth minute will see he have the ball comes from the goalkeeper people good people. and even nasa chadli him. whipping in the cross to thomas i mean yeah this is the first and fourth minutes i there were chances of both sides after this but it was belgium who came out on top in the second goal in the eighty second minutes you see the past the to get in has of the cats and to know the belgium needs a second of it the best ever finish well cup and so now they've managed fourth place
12:12 am
that was ninety six and today they go home with bronze medals around the next you know i often wonder how the teams feel about getting third place i mean you were so close to making it to the final but can they look forward to a bright future if they did this well at this tournament absolutely and that color behind is quite fishy this is a golden generation of belgian players. you have kevin the point of them and new kaku fantastic individual players who are playing as a team and doing so fantastically well for belgium but the key to me is to keep them about the martinez their coach he's proved in his top career that he's not been very good in the league but in cup competitions he's been very very good he can also get his team to play on one off games and you see mr belgium as well so latinas was full of support and praise for his team out of the final whistle but we soon this will go because these players didn't want to rely on that's all any more wanted to rely on working as a team becoming our group of players that they would do anything to watch your results responded to be money percent we've got
12:13 am
a pretty good stop around them but they wanted to make the country proud and they wanted to make every single belgium red devil fun extremely proud and that goes for them. all right so martinez talking about how important teamwork is you and i were talking earlier about didn't really work for the german team this time around at the world cup not such good team work the belgians going to very proud of that. but then at the same time must be said england did very well they did surprise everybody including perhaps themselves where do they go from here it's the same with those new ways up they would do incredibly well many fans not thinking they get past the group stage and here they did it they made it in semifinals of course losing to quatre unfortunately but they have a penalty win against colombia for the first time since ninety six that had sheaves that but all the teams off of the group sales kind of sussed out what england's game play was which is quite often from set pieces nine of the twelve goals they scored of the world cup so far came from set pieces that some have to improve on captain harry k. one of those players who scored five this is what he had to say after the final
12:14 am
whistle today shows in some of the game show that there's no room for improvement. we said no no we're not a finished off yet was to get everything going. but you know with this group of guys i know that what i did i want to prove every every time but you have a. you have it hurricane saying he wants to improve in the whole team have to improve it really does have to come from him as well as the captain and the main striker has to step up again if england want to reach a semifinal final any time soon well one more honor that perhaps harry kane could be winning is of course the golden boot just how good are his chances for that he's been very lucky he scored five goals from set pieces three of those coming from penalties and the two people catch up with him up playing some more in the final that's on to increase in and bought by both of whom are on three goals and would need to score hattrick to overtake him which would be very very difficult because the last time that happens was in the world cup final in one thousand nine hundred sixty six jeff scoring three pos germany then so it's very unlikely that they'll catch up with him so he'll go home with the gold so nick i know you're going to be
12:15 am
watching the match tomorrow solely of course that nick mechanic life least for it's always good to talk to you. and you're up to date now on d w news will be back again at the top of the hour omarion haven't seen it from all of us here in berlin and thanks for watching. big fun beethoven. this works the goddess for trying out. the maestro and three. strong twenty. earth.
