Serena Williams can’t believe she’s poised to crown her tennis comeback with an eighth Wimbledon crown after playing her way into a 10th final at The All England Club.
Williams will take on fellow former world No.1 Angelique Kerber in Saturday’s showpiece final after overpowering German 13th seed Julia Goerges 6-2 6-4 in just her 13th match back since returning to the court after more than a year’s maternity leave.
“It’s crazy to even know how I feel because I literally didn’t expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back,” Williams said.
“I just feel when I don’t have much to lose, I can play free.”
Kerber earlier beat Latvian 12th seed and 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko 6-3 6-3 in Thursday’s first semi-final.
