Kerber through to Wimbledon final after easy win over Ostapenko
13 July, 2018, 03:20
Williams will take on fellow former world No.1 Angelique Kerber in Saturday's showpiece final after overpowering German 13th seed Julia Goerges 6-2 6-4 in just her 13th match back since returning to the court after more than a year's maternity leave.
On Saturday, No. 25 seed Williams will face 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber, who advanced with a 6-3, 6-3 defeat of the risk-taking Jelena Ostapenko, in a reprise of Wimbledon's 2016 final. An eighth Wimbledon title would put Williams one behind Martina Navratilova for most championships at the All England Club.
Consecutive Ostapenko backhand errors handed 10th seed Kerber the first break and she proceeded to win seven of the next eight games basically by defending well and serving solidly to move into a 5-1 lead in the second set. "For me, I only see joy out of it", Williams said with a smile.
Goerges could only find the tram lines with a forehand down the line as Williams forced the first break, and a swirling cross-court forehand proved too hard for her to return as the first set went the way of the imperious American. "I had a really tough delivery, and I had to have multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it, to be honest".
