Serena Williams racks up her tenth Wimbledon final with an imposing display

Goerges

"I think that she steps up her game [against me]", Goerges said.

Let others shrug at this latest accomplishment, as if all it signified were merely another chance at another in a long line of trophies.

Her daughter Olympia was born in September, but Williams then underwent emergency surgery to prevent life-threatening blood clots.

"It's insane to even know how I feel because I literally didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back", Williams said.

Serena Williams of the United States celebrates winning her semi-final match against Germany's Julia Goerges at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, London July 12, 2018.

She's also closing in on her 24th Grand Slam title, which would equal Margaret Court's all-time record.

Williams is playing an extremely high level of tennis, and that she's doing so just months after her return from giving birth to her first child is simply remarkable.

"Whatever happens, honestly", Williams said, "it's an incredible effort from me".

Kerber earlier beat Latvian 12th seed and 2017 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko 6-3 6-3 in Thursday's first semi-final.

And Kerber, who has just two wins over her in eight meetings, knows she can not underestimate her current level. Kerber's resilience and consistency versus Ostapenko's capricious ways, a maddening mix of brilliance and error that has shaped a career of highs and lows, of unexpected victories and even more unforeseen defeats. Kerber did not dictate much, content to let 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko determine the outcome of almost every point.

The 30-year-old was gifted point after point as Ostapenko's aggressive game backfired in a blaze of unforced errors.

Williams' match against Goerges featured two of the best servers around, and began quite evenly, until 2-all, 30-all.

Champion in 2015 and 2016 before missing a year ago while pregnant, Williams' victory extended her winning streak on the famous London grass to 20 matches.

"I lost count after, like, four surgeries", said Williams, who has been wearing compression leggings this fortnight as a precaution.

Williams, seems to have taken the lead from her 10-month daughter in her approach to her comeback that has taken her to a 10th Wimbledon final. "This was not inevitable for me". It was tough. There was a time where I could barely walk to my mailbox. Now for sure she had a lot of big confidence, especially after the matches she won here already.

There were moments when watching Goerges made it easy to wonder how it could be possible she never had been past a major's fourth round until now. She won here I don't know how many times.

This year's final is the first repeat of a previous Wimbledon final since 2009, when Serena Williams faced Venus Williams for the fourth time in SW19, winning 7-6 (3), 6-2. So do I. She's playing so well. There was one brief blip to come: Williams got broken for the only time while serving for the match at 5-3. "I didn't know I would have such traumatic thoughts".
