Serena Williams is not focused on simply matching and breaking Margaret Court's all-time Grand Slam record - she wants to smash it.
Williams vs. Kerber will be a rematch of the 2016 final at Wimbledon.
When Williams took a leave of absence to have her first child soon after claiming her 23rd Grand Slam at the 2017 Australian Open, it appeared her streak might be under threat.
Williams duly raced to victory, delighting the packed Centre Court crowd with a display that confirms the 36-year-old is nearing her best form at the flawless moment.
Williams is set to face another German player in the final, 11th-seed Angelique Kerber, who also booked a spot in the decisive match beating Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3 in her respective semifinal.
"When I don't have anything to lose, I can just play so free and that's what I'm doing. I had a really tough delivery, and I had to have multiple surgeries and nearly didn't make it, to be honest", Williams said. "I'm just enjoying every moment". I didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tournament back after 16 months away.
'I remember when I couldn't even walk to my mailbox, so it's definitely not normal to be in a Wimbledon final'. "I know that she is always pushing you to the limits to play your best tennis".
"Whatever happens, honestly it's an incredible effort from me. and good motivation to keep going for the rest of my career", Williams added. Goerges, reduced to hit 13% of her groundstrokes inside the baseline, much less than the average 37% registered in their previous rounds, had to survive a huge, constant pressure from the back and her hopes to play the second all-German major final (Aussem won the only previous one at 1931 Wimbledon over Kranwinkel) faded. But unlike in the quarterfinals, when she needed seven match points to win, this time it required only two, with the match ending - fittingly enough - on a forehand by Ostapenko that sailed wide.
Her 35th Grand Slam semi quickly raced to a conclusion as Williams stepped on the gas, Goerges trying to mix things up but failing in her execution. She won here I don't know how many times.
At 181st in the world, Williams, who gave birth to her daughter 10 months ago, is the lowest ranked player to reach the women's final.
The other semifinal sees two-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber take on 2017 French Open victor Jelena Ostapenko. There was one brief blip to come: Williams got broken for the only time while serving for the match at 5-3.
