Wimbledon 2018: Serena Williams sets up title clash vs Angelique Kerber

first_imgSerena Williams thrashed Julia Goerges on Thursday to reach her 10th singles final at Wimbledon.The six-time Wimbledon champion won her semi-final match 6-2, 6-4 against the German player.Goerges had come into her first Grand Slam semi-final having belted more winners (199), more aces (44) and more unreturned serves (113) than anyone else in the women’s draw but those statistics counted for little when she came up against an opponent who is in hot pursuit of a record-equalling 24th major.The 13th seed had never taken a set off Williams in three previous meetings and any hopes she might have harboured of setting up an all-German final with Angelique Kerber, who had beaten Jelena Ostapenko earlier, were dashed in 70 unforgiving minutes.Like she’s never been away.@serenawilliams beats Julia Goerges 6-2, 6-4 to reach her 10th singles final at #Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/2oJhZO8b62Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 12, 2018In each set Goerges was broken in the sixth game and she simply did not have the firepower or belief to stop the seven-times champion from surging to a 20th successive win on the hallowed turf.Williams was back giving the crowd a one-arm raised victory twirl after reaching a 10th Wimbledon final after her opponent swiped a lob behind the baseline.At 181st in the world, Williams, who gave birth to a daughter 10 months ago, 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.advertisementShe will face Angelique Kerber in the final on Saturday.Earlier, Kerber defeated Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3 in her last four match.The 30-year-old was gifted point after point as Ostapenko’s aggressive game backfired in a blaze of unforced errors.A tight tussle looked in store at 3-3 in the first set but when Ostapenko fired a forehand long to drop serve the match quickly ran away from her.Ready to go one better?2016 finalist @AngeliqueKerber returns to the #Wimbledon final, beating Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3 pic.twitter.com/yFd6ZgfTNqWimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 12, 2018She double-faulted on set point and Kerber, who served well and defended superbly when required to fend off Ostapenko’s sporadic attacks, accelerated into a 5-1 lead.Ostapenko suddenly began to land some big blows, clawing back a couple of games and had a point to narrow the deficit to a single game as Kerber showed late nerves.But Kerber nipped the recovery in the bud and booked a Saturday date back on Centre Court when Ostapenko rammed a forehand wide.(With Reuters inputs)last_img read more
