On the grass court at Wimbledon on Thursday, Serena Williams took one step closer to her eighth career Wimbledon title after dispatching Julia Goerges of Germany in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4. Her march to the Wimbledon final is coming

“I don’t even know how to feel. I literally didn’t expect to do this well,” Williams said afterward, referring to having just given birth 10 months ago, and suffering near-fatal complications. “A lot of people were saying, ’Oh, she should be in the final,’” the 36-year-old Williams said. “For me it’s such a pleasure and a joy because, you know, less than a year ago, I was going through so much stuff.”

Williams is set to go head to head with 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber, also from Germany, in the final on Saturday.
