Serena Wiliams will have to wait for a record-breaking 23rd grand slam title after the American endured a shock US Open defeat to Karolina Pliskova.

Williams stood two victories away from beating Steffi Graf's Open-era best 22 major triumphs but her charge was ended by Pliskova, who who won 6-2 7-6 (7/5).

The disappointment is doubled for Williams as it means she will also surrender the world number one ranking at the end of the tournament to Germany's Angelique Kerber.

Pliskova will now face either Kerber or Denmark's Caroline Wozniacki in her first grand slam final on Saturday.

Andy Murray said he was "proud" to get his hands on the Wimbledon trophy once again - and vowed to make the most of celebrations this time around.

He commended Raonic and his team on a well-fought campaign and apologised to them for his victory, saying: "Sorry about today, great job".

The Scot said that there had been "so much stress and pressure" when he won his first title in 2013 that he had not made the most of his victory.

I will make sure I enjoy this one tonight, for sure.

There were boos when Murray mentioned Prime Minister David Cameron, who was watching with his mother Mary.

But he defended Mr Cameron, saying: "I think playing a Wimbledon final's tough, I certainly wouldn't like being Prime Minister, it's an impossible job."
