Serena Williams defeated Barbora Strycova on Centre Court at Wimbledon on Thursday. The 37-year-old Williams easily beat Strycova 6-1, 6-2, and will bring her back to her 11th Wimbledon final. 

This victory for Williams also brings her closer to a chance at a record-tying 24th Grand Slam title, a feat held only by Australian Margaret Court.  Williams will play Romanian Simona Halep at Saturday’s final. 

Williams said: “It definitely feels good to be back in the final.”
