Wimbledon: Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber reach women’s final to set up repeat of 2016 match
Williams beat Kerber 7-5 6-3 in the women’s final at SW19 two years ago
Serena Williams will face Angelique Kerber in the 2018 Wimbledon women’s singles final after both players won their semi-final matches in straight sets.
It will be a repeat of the 2016 final which saw the American come out on top with a 7-5 6-3 victory.
Williams put on a superb display of power and athleticism to reach her what is her 30th grand slam singles final.
The 23-time champion, who will equal Margaret Court’s all-time record if she beats Kerber on Saturday, needed just an hour and 10 minutes to defeat Julia Goerges 6-2 6-4.
This was arguably Williams’ most impressive display since she gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia just over 10 months ago.
Meanwhile, Kerber secured her spot at her second Wimbledon final after nullifying the threat of Jelena Ostapenko.

The German is now one win away from a third grand slam title.
This semi-final was billed as attack versus defence and it was the solid, reliable manner of Kerber that prevailed as she let an erratic Ostapenko, who was going for winners almost every shot, hand her a swathe of free points.
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 which cost her any chance of progressing.
