Serena Williams is in the Wimbledon final after beating Julia Görges 6-2, 6-4, in the semi-final, and will now play Angelique Kerber in the final on Saturday.
That match will be a reprise of the 2016 final, which Williams won 7-5, 6-3. Serena has now won 20 consecutive matches at Wimbledon.
And while Kerber is playing ever so well, and has beaten Williams twice before, it seems likely the run will stretch to 21 before the weekend is over.
“I didn’t expect to play this well so quickly into my comeback,” Williams said courtside. “It’s not inevitable for me to be playing like this.
“I had multiple surgeries and nearly didn’t make it when I gave birth. I’m enjoying every moment.” Serena told reporters after the defeating Julia.
