Meghan, who also wowed the Wimbledon crowds in a Ralph Lauren shirt and high-waisted pants, was of course supporting her close friend Serena Williams, who played Angelique Kerber in the final - returning to the tournament for the first time since having her daughter just 10 months ago.
Angelique Kerber beat seven-time champion Serena Williams to win her first Wimbledon title and spoil the American's dream comeback as a mum.
"It was definitely a different game [than I've seen this tournament], but at times she hit the ball really hard".
After the match, during an interview, Serena got a bit emotional sharing that: 'It was such an fantastic tournament for me. I can not describe this feeling because when I was a kid I was always dreaming of this moment. Because I learnt so much from myself, like a person, improving my tennis, improving me as a tennis player, and I think that is just the process.
'But, you know, Angelique played really well.
Many expected Serena Williams to claim her 24th Slam but it was Angelique Kerber who left with the trophy on Saturday afternoon.
"I think these two weeks have really showed me that, OK, I can compete". "Honestly I feel like if I can do it, they can do it".
"I am just me, and that's all I can be".
Soon enough, she was down on the grass, celebrating the moment and caking dirt on her white dress. But my journey has just begun. "This is literally just the beginning, literally just the beginning". Kerber rebounded from that 2016 Wimbledon loss to win the US Open two months later.
Kerber, the 30 year old world #10 who had previously lost the 2016 final, roared to life in the 2018 final. To all the mum's out there, I was playing for you today and I tried.
The final started more than two hours late, because they had to wait for the end of Novak Djokovic's five-set victory over Rafael Nadal in a men's semifinal that was suspended the night before. As the 36-year-old tennis pro advanced to the Wimbledon women's semi-finals after beating Camila Giorgi of Italy, Ohanian had shared a similar message.
"It didn't have an impact on me".
When Williams made another mistake to lose the next game, she gestured to her coaching team with a look of depair.
"My priority is my baby now, you know". She is just getting started, ' Ohanian wrote.
Williams said: "We've always had a wonderful friendship. If I make it home in time, I'll hang out with Olympia". "I think I learned a lot from previous year, with all the expectation, all the things I go through", she told a news conference. "But I might change the ending".
