  • Serena Williams takes on Julia Goerges for a place in the Wimbledon final

Serena Williams will bid for an eighth Wimbledon singles title on Saturday having powered back to the top of tennis barely 10 months after becoming a mother.

Kerber earlier beat Latvian 12th seed and 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko 6-3 6-3 in Thursday's first semi-final. "We both learned a lot". Kerber needs to mix up her shots, giving Serena different pace and make her run the length of the court.

It did not happen again in any Grand Slam until Belgian Kim Clijsters won the 2009 U.S. Open after having daughter Jada.

The American didn't drop a set in the entire tournament and Russian 21st seed Zvonareva, playing in her first Grand Slam final, was no match.

"I think she had really many advantages because of that". She won here I don't know how many times. "She does it so well".

Williams defeated Julia Goreges of Germany 6-2, 6-2.

"This is not inevitable for me", Serena Williams said, alluding to the serious postpartum health problems she faced after giving birth. "She's such a great opponent". She's coming back. For me, I'm coming back from 2017.

Williams will face off with Kerber on Saturday; if she is victorious, she'll tie Margaret Court's all-time record for grand slam singles titles.

Serena Williams (USA) celebrates match point during her match against Julia Goerges (GER) on day 10 at All England Lawn and Croquet Club. But it will be no easy road. She can relax and is playing awesome tennis. It is the desire to compete and be the best at the highest level, one that she has carried since she was a teenager. "There was definitely pressure towards the end", said Williams, who also completed the Serena Slam in 2003. That first game consisted of eight points: Three were unforced errors by Ostapenko, including a double-fault to begin the proceedings; the other five were winners by her, including a 100 miles per hour ace to close the hold. She's also pounded 44 aces, seen 50 percent of her first serves unreturned and hammered a 122 miles per hour ace against Camila Giorgi in the quarters.

She was bed-ridden for 6 weeks and only returned to the tour in March. Her movement has gotten nimbler; her ball-striking, more crisp. Equally important will be the mental game that goes on between these two women.

Gorges, who had spent more than 10 hours on court before this match, the longest of any of the semi-finalists by around two and a half hours, was put out of her misery on Centre Court in just 70 minutes. 'I think it doesn't matter against who she is playing. "We had so many great matches in the last years".

But at this unusual stage, the chase for No.24 seems secondary to Williams simply being back in sparkling form so soon after her delivery and medical problems.

Ranked 183 in the world before the Championships began, her performances have rendered the debate and controversy prior to the tournament about whether she should be seeded - she was eventually granted a discretionary seeding of 25 - absurd.
