Serena Williams is one win away from claiming a record equaling 22nd Grand Slam title, after making it to the Wimbledon final.
The top seed was in control from start to finish, as Serena needed just 48 minutes to beat Elena Vesnina 6-2, 6-0.
”It’s never easy out there,” Williams said in an interview with the BBC after leaving Centre Court.
Williams’ serve was in fine form, reaching 123 mph and producing 11 aces against the 50th-ranked Vesnina, who was participating in her first major semifinal and trying to become the first unseeded woman to reach the title match at the All England Club in the Open era.
Williams won 28 of 31 points that she served, including the last 17. She compiled a 28-9 edge in total winners.
