Angelique Kerber through to Wimbledon Final… awaits Serena or Goerges

Angelique Kerber progressed to her second Wimbledon final in three years as she eased past Jelena Ostapenko on Centre Court on Thursday.

After a testing 2017 in which she did not win a title and failed to go beyond the fourth round of any grand slam Kerber has enjoyed a resurgent 2018, winning the Sydney International and reaching semi-finals of the Australian Open and quarters of Roland Garros.


Ostapenko, French Open champion in 2017, threatened to be a significant obstacle in her attempt to return to the Wimbledon final, which she lost to Serena Williams two years ago, but the Latvian produced an error-strewn display in which she never settled after a nervous start.


That allowed Kerber to claim a comfortable 6-3 6-3 win, setting up either a repeat of her 2016 duel with Williams or an all-German final with Julie Görges as the former world number one seeks to win the third grand slam of her career.
