Serena Williams Eased Past Barbora Strycova to Advance into Wimbledon Final
Serena Williams made light work of Barbora Strycova to reach the Wimbledon final and stand one win away from a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title.
The former world No 1 swatted aside the challenge of unseeded Czech player Barbora Strycova 6-1 6-2 on Centre Court to reach her 11th final at the All England Club.
Williams converted four of her five break points in reaching Saturday’s final, while Strycova failed on all three of her chances.
The American, 37, wrapped up victory with just 59 minutes on the clock.
“It feels good to be back in the final,” said Williams, who was runner-up to Angelique Kerber last year and will be appearing in the grass-court showpiece for an 11th time on Saturday.
Now the American will bid to secure her eighth Wimbledon title when she will take on Romania’s Simona Halep in the showpiece event on Saturday.
Halep defeated Elina Svitolina 6-1, 6-3.
