Julia Goerges on Thursday.

The sheer energy it took to stay with the 25th seed eventually took its toll, though, and Williams was ruthless in converting.

Williams, 36, will meet Angelique Kerber of Germany, who won earlier Thursday 6-3, 6-3 over Jelena Ostapenko. Williams, who already holds the Open Era record for Grand Slam titles, can tie Court for most ever. And, well, sure, she's widely regarded as not just the best of her era, but any era. Until the start of this tournament, that was the last match Williams played at Wimbledon.

"She knew how to win that match by her experience, and".

Hardly so. And Williams has made a point of raising the curtain on her rocky road back to make a larger point to women who feel overwhelmed by the changes in their bodies, emotions and priorities following childbirth. It was tough. There was a time where I could barely walk to my mailbox. "So do I", Williams said. That's wildly impressive. Believe me, I know she wants to go out there and win.


"It's insane, I don't even know how to feel because I didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", said Williams. In the set, Williams won an incredible 87 percent of her first-serve points (13 of 15).

But when the steely-eyed Williams imposed her iron will, the challenger was unable to reply, dropping five games straight to surrender the first set and fall behind in the second.

Serena Williams will chase her 24th Grand Slam title against Angelique Kerber in the Wimbledon final.

'But as I said in the past couple years, I don't want to limit myself.

A jubilant Williams was back giving the crowd a one-arm raised victory twirl after reaching a 10th Wimbledon final when her opponent swiped a lob behind the baseline.


She completely controlled the game and crucially broke to 4-2 in the opening set.

Serena is well established as one of her sport's all-time greats and winning the title for the third time in the last four years - she missed the 2017 tournament due to her pregnancy - would only enhance her standing.

Williams duly raced to victory, delighting the packed Centre Court crowd with a display that confirms the 36-year-old is nearing her best form at the flawless moment. "We saw that she improved every single match she's playing here".

"Oh, wow. I never thought about that".

In the week leading up to her first-round match against Viktoriya Tomova, Williams posted a daily countdown on Instagram that included flashback Wimbledon photos and uplifting sentiments.
