'It's crazy': Serena shocked by making 10th Wimbledon final

Kerber has a chance to set up a rematch with Williams after losing the 2016 final to the American - although if she and Goerges win, it would be the first all-German women's final since 1931.

Her 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 on nearly every shot, hand her a swathe of free points.

Venus, 38, and still ranked in the top 10 and Serena, 36, attempting to equal Margaret Court's record 24 Grand Slam singles titles tonight after ducking into the tournament creche to check on her baby girl.

In only her fourth tournament since the arrival of her daughter Olympia in September, the 23-time Grand Slam champion is closing in on her first major title since becoming a parent.

She will face either seven-time champion Serena Williams or fellow German Julia Georges in the final.

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 on nearly every shot, hand her a swathe of free points. The last woman to win Wimbledon without conceding one was Marion Bartoli in 2013.

Hamilton was on pole on Sunday and made a poor start before his brush with Raikkonen who apologised and accepted the blame. Hamilton said that his immediate post-race remarks were down to the exhaustion he felt after such a demanding race.


She added: "Yeah, she's a fighter". She won here I don't know how many times. It was tough. There was a time I could barely walk to my mailbox.

"It's like, "C'mon guys, this is pretty awesome". She's coming back. For me, I'm coming back from 2017", Kerber said.

"I was expecting a few more baby steps myself".

"It's insane to even know how I feel because I literally didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", Williams said. "It's interesting how that mental recovery is actually taking much longer than I ever expected".

Kerber is a two-time grand slam champion after winning the Australian Open and US Open in 2016.

The 30-year-old then gained an early break in the second set on her way to the victory. She's the only former champion left in the field and has a 9-1 record in semifinals at the All England Club. Kerber is the best player she's faced this fortnight, and both women have dropped only one set so far this tournament. I was still pregnant at this time a year ago. But she struck back immediately and looked to the sky when an attempted lob from Gorges flew out to give her the victory. This is the only way to beat her. "I have to be ready for the match of my life". I don't think any of them have been easy.

While teams have scored more goals than usual, the number of own goals in Russian Federation was double the previous record. Perhaps with one eye on the VAR system, players didn't break the rules so much, but they've certainly been bending them.


And after days of speculation it was confirmed that Williams' close friend Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, will be in the Royal Box to lend her support.

Since day one at the All England Club, Williams has built game upon game, match upon match and has found her sharpness on the grass. I'm looking forward to playing against her. "She's playing like the pressure is off".

"Jelena is always fighting until the last point, hits the ball really hard, and I was trying to stay focused".

On that occasion, Kerber was beaten by Serena Williams in a thrilling encounter.

"I'm really happy and proud to be in a Grand Slam final". The heroism required to come back from two sets down to Roger Federer is not the kind required to disarm a ticking time bomb in a war zone.
