Serena Williams will face Germany’s Angelique Kerber for an eighth Wimbledon singles title after both won their semi-finals in straight sets.

The American former world number one overpowered Germany’s Julia Gorges 6-2 6-4, while Kerber beat Latvia’s Jelena Ostapenko 6-3 6-3. Saturday’s final will be a re-match of the 2016 showpiece, which Williams won.

Williams will be seeking a 24th Grand Slam title and her first since giving birth last September.
