Super-Mom Serena into 10th Wimbledon final

The 23-time slam champion will equal Margaret Court's all-time haul of major titles if she beats Kerber on Saturday.

Williams is the lowest ranked player to reach the women's final but that number will fool no one, and especially not Kerber who was runner-up to the American in the 2016 final.

"It's insane. I don't even know how to feel, you know, because literally, I didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", Williams, 36, said, according to the Associated Press. I think that's what I was doing in the past, I was limiting myself. "I had a hard birth, multiple surgeries, I nearly didn't make it. I couldn't even walk to my mail box, so for me to back in a Wimbledon final isn't normal nor is it inevitable". Every year for a couple years she comes out to Wimbledon, has supported me.

Last year, Williams took a break from competitive sport, announcing her pregnancy shortly after claiming her 23rd Grand Slam at the 2017 Australian Open.

Serena Williams will face Germany's Angelique Kerber for an eighth Wimbledon singles title after both won their semi-finals in straight sets.

"I was expecting a few more baby steps myself", she said. I think grass is her best surface and she plays so well here. "It would be really special to win", said the two-time Grand Slam champion.

Ostapenko won the French Open in 2017 by playing in this manner and knows no other way, but she had an off day and, despite hitting 30 winners, it was her 35 unforced errors that cost her any chance of progressing. "She does it well", said Williams, who is on a 20-match winning streak at Wimbledon. Until the start of this tournament, that was the last match Williams played at Wimbledon. She waited 42 main draw appearances in a Grand Slam before reaching her maiden semifinalists, the fifth longest wait in the Open Era behind Likhovtseva (46), Vinci (44), Tauziat and Vesnina (42).

A second break allowed her to serve for the win at 5-1 and she had a match point, only for Ostapenko to find her range and stay alive.

Will Serena match Court's record? "I know that she is always pushing you to the limits to play your best tennis".

Although her 6-2 6-4 victory over German 13th seed Julia Gorges on Thursday was her first match against a top-50 player at these championships, she has shown enough power, desire and stamina here to answer any questions over the shape she is in.
