Serena Williams reaches Wimbledon final months after returning from maternity leave

Williams has won all three of their previous encounters, with the most recent coming at the French Open last month.

The American is projected to move to No.28 by finishing runner-up and No.19, while Goerges will rise to No.10 by making the last four.

"I didn't expect to play this well so quickly into my comeback", Williams said after the match.

"When I don't have anything to lose, I can just play so free and that's what I'm doing". This is not inevitable for me, I had a really tough delivery and multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it to be honest. So I remember I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final. "For me it's such a pleasure and a joy because, you know, less than a year ago, I was going through so much stuff".

"This [Ramsey's contract] is one question for the player, the club, but my opinion - I said to them - I think he is one important player for me".

Playing her first Wimbledon semifinal, 21-year-old Ostapenko rallied to save a match point and break Kerber's serve for the first time, but the German saved a break point as she served out the match at the second attempt.

Angelique Kerber advanced to her second Wimbledon final with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Jelena Ostapenko. "We played here in the final the last time I played here in the final".

Times have changed, opponents have come and gone, and Serena Williams keeps vying for Grand Slam titles.

In the driving seat, Williams began hitting the ball cleanly and with her customary mesomorphic beauty, holding her serve and then breaking Goerges, this time to love. 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. Her mobility is solid, her serve is incredible, and she's been taken to three sets just once all tournament. 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).

That push has driven up oil prices amid concerns that a divestment from Iranian oil would reduce the world's overall supply. Imports by state refiners during the period more than doubled to about 413,400 bpd from 191,700 bpd, the data showed.

She was, instead, going to employ spectacular defense and solid, steady play, while letting her opponent, Jelena Ostapenko, be the one to determine the outcomes of almost every point.
