Serena Moves Into the Final
LONDON (AP) — Serena Williams barely got in a workout in a 6-2, 6-love win over Elena Vesnina in the Wimbledon semifinals.
The dominant victory took just 48 minutes for the top seed and six-time champ, who won 28 of 31 points on her serve, including the last 17. She compiled a 28-9 edge in total winners.
Williams heads into Saturday's final in search of her 22nd Grand Slam singles title, which would tie Steffi Graf for the most all-time.
Venus Williams is looking for a spot in the final against her sister, but has lost the opening set of her semifinal against Angelique Kerber.
Serena and Venus have met four times in the title match at the All England Club, with Serena winning three times.
The Williams sisters will be back on court later today for a doubles quarterfinal match against Vesnina and Ekaterina Makarova.
