Serena Williams celebrates

Serena Williams is one win away from an eighth Wimbledon title after seeing off Julia Goerges in the semi-final.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion was quick out of the blocks and, although Goerges started well, the American wore her opponent down to win 6-2, 6-4 in one hour and 10 minutes.

As expected, the German initially looked solid on her serve, but Williams soon started to come to grips with it and broke in game six and again in game eight to take the first set in 33 minutes.

The second set followed a similar pattern as the seven-time SW19 winner hit her stride and broke in game six again.

Goerges was determined to make a game of it and had a real go in game eight. She found herself 0-40, but Williams saved two of the break points, but the German wasn’t to be denied as she claimed the break back.

However, Williams came out hard in the next game and sloppy play from the German earned her three points.

She needed only one to seal the deal and secure her 10th Wimbledon final where she will face Angelique Kerber, who she beat in 2016.
