Kerber through to Wimbledon final after easy win over Ostapenko

German Tennis Player Julia Goerges Julia Goerges outright bet has yielded excellent returns for followers

But unlike in the quarterfinals, when she needed seven match points to win, this time it required only two, with the match ending - fittingly enough - on a forehand by Ostapenko that sailed wide.

The 23-time major victor is just one title short of matching the legendary Australian's haul of Slam title and she will contest the final at the All England Club for the chance to match her.

With her compatriot already advancing to the final, Goerges hoped to make it an all-German affair, but Williams proved too strong in the second of two disappointingly one-sided semi-finals. "These are the matches I was working for since I was a kid".

Serena Williams will vie for a sixth Wimbledon title but before that, she will have to get past Germany's Julia Gorges in the semi-finals on Centre Court.

The 13th seed looked out of the contest at 5-3 down but she managed to force a gutsy break of serve with Williams serving for the match.

That was also the year the German was the runner-up at Wimbledon, losing to Serena Williams in the title match.

Woman arrested for allegedly beating 92-yr-old with brick
A neighbour had filmed the assault and told United States media that the woman who hit him said: "Go back to your country". Borjas had been driving by, she said, and wanted to stop, but the woman threatened to hit her vehicle with the brick.

Kerber looked anxious and Ostapenko had a point to close to within a game but she dumped a backhand return into net and then coughed up two more errors to hand Kerber victory.

Williams, who missed Wimbledon a year ago due to her pregnancy, won the grass-court Grand Slam on her previous two visits in 2015 and 2016.

Kerber is a two-time major champion and will be playing in her fourth Grand Slam final.

She is on a 19-match winning streak at the All England Club, with her last defeat coming against France's Alize Cornet in the 2014 third round.

Ostapenko won the French Open in 2017 by playing in this manner and knows no other way, but she had an off day and, despite hitting 30 winners, it was her 35 unforced errors that cost her any chance of progressing.

The first game on Friday, served by Ostapenko, was a snapshot of what was to come and illustrated just why the 21-year-old has become such a "must see" player on the WTA Tour and why watching American great Billie Jean King describes the Latvian's all-or-nothing style as "so much fun".
