Williams was soundly thrashed 6-2 6-2 by an inspired Simona Halep in Saturday's Wimbledon final as the American once again fell short in her bid to equal Margaret Court's record of 24 major singles titles.
Halep blizted Williams from the off as she ran out a 6-2 6-2 victor to add the Wimbledon crown to the French Open title she won past year.
As for Williams, she surely has to try and reduce the noise and whole circus around her if she is to win another Grand Slam.
It is her second Grand Slam title after her success at the French Open in 2018.
Simona Halep celebrates her first Wimbledon title after defeating Serena Williams in straight sets on Saturday.
The day before the women's final, eight-time Wimbledon victor and Halep's idol Federer overcame Rafael Nadal in his semi-final, before offering his support to the world number seven, saying she should "back herself" and show a "winner mentality".
"Feels good", Halep smiled as she tapped her newly minted, purple All England Club members' badge.
During her post-match press conference, Williams quickly rebuked the idea, saying, "The day I stop fighting for equality and for people that look like you and me will be the day I'm in my grave".
After falling in her last two major finals, at Wimbledon a year ago and the US Open soon after, it seemed like Williams had finally hit her stride after coming back from a complicated childbirth and maternity leave.
"I knew that I had to be aggressive, being 100% for every ball, that I can't have to let her come back in to the match because she's so powerful and so strong".
The 27-year-old has long been regarded as the best mover in the women's game but she has always regarded grass with a natural clay-courter's suspicion. I love coming out here, playing in front of you guys.
"I'm desperate to win Wimbledon more than to stop her", she said.
However, the motivation for Halep was far greater as she focused more about the title than who her opponent was. In the 2017 championship match, she blew a 6-4, 3-0 lead to Jelena Ostapenko and it seemed she couldn't get over the proverbial hump. "It's never easy to face a Grand Slam final". I would like to see her put everything else aside from that. You can get intimidated by the moment. "I'm very sure that was the best match of my life". You can get nervous, too nervous. She then went on to get apparel from Adidas before signing a contract for apparel with Nike in February 2018.
"In everything she does, Serena shines a light on what all of us must fight for in order to achieve equality for all".
TMZ reports that a public document shows the musician and the supermodel obtained a marriage certificate early in the year. She had three marriages including this one and four kids from these marriages. "I've been married twice".
