Serena Williams to play for 24th Grand Slam Title in Wimbledon Final

Wimbledon glance Williams to face Goerges in semifinals

Stop and let that breathe for a moment. But there is no statistic fantastic enough to convey the implausibility of the outcome - a 6-2, 6-4 win over Goerges that at once felt predetermined, yet unthinkable just a short time ago. I lost count after, like, four surgeries because I was in so many. "I remember I couldn't even walk to my mail box, so it's definitely not "normal" for me to be in a Wimbledon final".

She broke in the sixth game of the first set when Gorges went wide and then took the set on the German's serve when her opponent sent a forehand wide.

It was an especially sweet victory for Williams, a 23-time champion, who survived harrowing complications when she gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia just 10 months ago. She remained on bed rest for several weeks afterward, unable to train until the end of the year. When she returned from maternity leave at Indian Wells in March, every baby step was celebrated. That changed last week. Today was, unfortunately for her, a case of the latter.

Gorges, who had spent more than 10 hours on court before this match, the longest of any of the semi-finalists by around two and a half hours, was put out of her misery on Centre Court in just 70 minutes. "To see her back, it's great".

Liverpool sign Switzerland forward Xherdan Shaqiri - Premier League 2018
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has described the club's decision to sign Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City as a "no-brainer". Xherdan Shaqiri is happy to join forces with Mohamed Salah after signing for Liverpool .

Pavey produced an inspirational performance to become the oldest female European champion in 2014 at the age of 40, winning 10,000 metres gold in front of her 11-month-old daughter. "We had so many great matches in the last years. I didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", Williams said. "If Serena Williams enters the 2018 U.S. Open, the USTA will recognize her accomplishments, recognize her return to the workplace and will seed her, regardless of what her ranking is". "I honestly felt I would have done better in some of the earlier tournaments".

That's a revealing confession from a player who has appeared as mentally unflappable as any other woman in this tournament. Both players advanced to the final with a relatively comfortable straight-set win in their respective semifinal matches. "I think that she steps up her game [against me]", Goerges said.

"A lot of people were saying, "Oh, she should be in the (Wimbledon) final".

The victory over Goerges extended Williams' winning streak at Wimbledon to 20 matches, dating to the start of the 2015 edition.

For January-June, it rose to $133.76 billion, compared with about $117.51 billion in the same period previous year . Last week, the United States and China introduced tariffs of 25 percent on $34 billion of each other's exports.

"I know that she is always pushing you to the limits". "That was the hardest part _ accepting that I didn't", Williams said. But this is different. "These are the matches I was working for since I was a kid".

ESPN's Nicolas Pereira breaks down all the action from the women's semifinals, which saw Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber cruise into the Wimbledon final.

"I don't think it's the right thing to do", Dominika Cibulkova told the BBC before the decision came down. I was limiting myself. "I want to get as many as I can, starting with". The Australian's 24 singles majors remains a record, with Williams one behind. She's also won her past 15 Grand Slam matches since the start of the 2017 Australian Open, which she won while pregnant. "I can't even describe it".
