Serena Williams one match from history as she powers through to Wimbledon final

Serena Williams powered through to an 11th Wimbledon final and to the brink of history Thursday as she swept aside Barbora Strycova on Centre Court.

The American, at the age of 37, handed a thumping 6-1, 6-2 lesson to Strycova, whose first singles semifinal at a Grand Slam proved distinctly one-sided.

Victory for Williams sets up a shot at a record-tying 24th Grand Slam title, with Romanian Simona Halep the player standing in her way of matching Australian Margaret Court’s all-time tally in Saturday’s final.

Williams, hunting an eighth Wimbledon crown, said: “It definitely feels good to be back in the final.”
