Serena Williams To Face Kerber In Wimbledon Final Saturday
Serena Williams qualified for her 10th Wimbledon final on Thursday defeating Julia Goerges in two straight sets.
Williams who was out of action for a year defeated Goerges 6-2 6-4 and she is one win away from equalling Margaret Court’s grand slam record of 24 titles after her victory.
She will face Angelique Kerber in Saturday’s final in a repeat of the 2016 showpiece, a match the American won in straight sets.
“It’s crazy. I don’t even know how to feel,” Williams said after the match.
“I literally didn’t expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back in 16 months. I just feel like when I don’t have anything to lose, I can just play so free. That’s kind of what I’m doing.”
