Serena Williams, Angelique Kerber reach Wimbledon final

LONDON — Times have changed, opponents have come and gone, and Serena Williams keeps vying for Grand Slam titles.

The 36-year-old Williams, who did not play Wimbledon last year while taking a leave of absence to have her first child, reached a Grand Slam final for the 12th straight season by beating Julia Goerges 6-2, 6-4 at the All England Club on Thursday.

“It’s crazy. I don’t even know how to feel,” Williams said after the match. “I literally didn’t expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back in 16 months. I just feel like when I don’t have anything to lose, I can just play so free. That’s kind of what I’m doing.”

When Williams left the game soon after claiming her 23rd Grand Slam at the 2017 Australian Open, it appeared her streak might be under threat.

That’s not the case. She will vie for her eighth Wimbledon title against German Angelique Kerber on Saturday in a repeat of the 2016 Wimbledon final, which Williams won in straight sets.

The 11th-seeded Kerber beat Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3 in the other
