When serving for the match, Williams fell behind 0-40, and Goerges broke on her third opportunity with a flashing forehand, slammed deep into the far corner. "I know that I have to play my best tennis to beat her, especially on the grass". "I think that she steps up her game [against me]", Goerges said.

Let others shrug at this latest accomplishment, as if all it signified were merely another chance at another in a long line of trophies.

However, unforced errors were her downfall and particularly costly given Williams' unerring accuracy and solid service games.

The former world number one developed a "slew of health complications" after developing a pulmonary embolism 24 hours after her baby's arrival.

"It's insane. I don't even know how to feel, you know, because literally, I didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", Williams said.

USA tennis star Serena Williams has outplayed Julia Görges of Germany 6-2 6-4 to propel herself into the Wimbledon final just 10 months after giving birth to her daughter.

"When I start this year, a goal was to be playing good in majors, in the Grand Slams, and to reach finals again". Autograph hunters, selfie-seekers, memorabilia collectors, young, old, girls and boys, asking her to smile, telling her to keep going, calling her an inspiration. "It's such a pleasure and a joy [to be in the final] because less than a year ago, I was going through so much".

After hitting five aces with a serve that reached 119 miles per hour, delivering 16 winners to only seven unforced errors, and covering the court so well with speed and effort, Williams will face another German, 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber, on Saturday.

For Kerber it is a second opportunity to win Wimbledon in a final after she reached the showpiece match in 2016.

Kerber did not dictate much, content to let 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko determine the outcome of almost every point. The 21-year-old had 30 winners and 36 unforced errors, while the German had a mere seven errors.

The Wimbledon ladies' finals are set to have a double dose of royal glamour this weekend, as the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex are confirmed to be attending the match together on Saturday afternoon. She won the grass-court tournament the last two times she played it, in 2015 and 2016, before missing it previous year while pregnant.

"I am a member, so that kind of counts". In the week leading up to her first-round match against Viktoriya Tomova, Williams posted a daily countdown on Instagram that included flashback Wimbledon photos and uplifting sentiments.

"This is not inevitable for me". 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.

The first of the two matches on Centre Court seemed to hold more promise given the contrasting styles of the two players.

There were moments when watching Goerges made it easy to wonder how it could be possible she never had been past a major's fourth round until now.

In the first set, the experienced Kerber broke twice while the only break-point Ostapenko earned was when she was leading 3-2.
