STAT OF THE DAY: Williams will be bidding to match Australian Margaret Court's all-time record of 24 grand slam singles crowns.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "This is not inevitable for me to be playing like this. I had a really tough delivery and I had to have multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it when I gave birth. I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal to be in a Wimbledon final." - Williams.

TOURNAMENT SUMMARY: The American will play German Angelique Kerber in a repeat of their 2016 title match after the German outclassed Jelena Ostapenko 6-3 6-3 in their semi-final.
