Williams said she had been happy to simply get to the final so soon into her comeback, adding: But Angelique played really well.
I look forward to continuing to be out there and do what I do best. The German former world number one showed her intent in the first game, breaking the Williams serve that forms the backbone of her game.
Williams broke back to level at before Kerber re-established the advantage in the seventh game when the American hit long, and she took the set when Williams sent a backhand into the net.
Kerber stuck with her tactics in the second set, breaking in the sixth, and the sight of Williams falling to the ground in frustration when she missed a straightforward lob for when Kerber was serving for the match summed up her day.
The German struck a forehand winner to bring up championship point and sealed the victory on the next point when Williams could only return a serve into the net.

You could see it in her body language, she really settled in. Kerber always gets that one more ball back.
