The greatest female tennis player in history, and perhaps the greatest tennis player period, is in trouble. Serena Williams made the women's final of Wimbledon after dropping just one set in the entire tournament.

Now she's dropped another. Angelique Kerber has been on fire so far, and leads Serena after one set.

Williams is attempting to win her 24th Grand slam title, which would tie her with Margaret Court who dominated in the 1960's and early 70's. Serena already owns the record for most titles won during the Open Era.

Kerber won the first set 6-3.

Serena will have to battle back and win the final two sets if she's to take home title No. 24. Williams was forced to withdraw from the French Open with a strained muscle, and is in danger of losing her in her second grand slam of the year.

Kerber has been just as dominant as Williams in the Wimbledon tournament heading into the final. She dropped just one set en route to her match with Serena.

The match can be seen on ESPN.
