Former world number one Serena Williams will face German 11th seed Angelique Kerber in the women’s singles final at SW 19 following her semifinal win over another German, Julia Georges.
The 36-year-old defeated Georges 6-2 6-4 in their semifinal clash on Thursday evening and will now play Kerber on Saturday in the repeat of the 2016 final which the American won.
Angelique Kerber had earlier beaten Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia 6-3 6-3 in the first semifinal on Thursday.
Serena Williams is chasing an 8th Wimbledon Open title in what would be her 10th final.
Reacting to her semifinal win, Serena Williams said: “It’s crazy. I don’t even know how to feel because I literally didn’t think I’d do this well in my fourth tournament back.”
“I don’t have anything to lose and I feel I can play so free. That’s what I’m doing.
“This is not inevitable for me, I had a really tough delivery and multiple surgeries and almost didn’t make it to be honest. I couldn’t even walk to my mailbox, so it’s definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final.
“I’m enjoying every moment.” She concluded.
