LONDON---Serena Williams is just one win away
from another Grand Slam milestone.
The top-ranked Williams maintained her 11-year
dominance over Maria Sharapova, beating the Russian
6-2, 6-4 yesterday to reach her eighth Wimbledon
championship match and 25th career Grand Slam final.
In beating Sharapova for the 17th straight time,
Williams won her 27th consecutive Grand Slam match
and will now be playing for a fourth straight major
title---a "Serena Slam"---and the third leg of a calen-
dar-year Grand Slam.
"At least I made it to a final of four," Williams said.
"That s pretty good. That s pretty good."
Williams served 13 aces, including three in the final
game, had 29 winners and never faced a break point
in overpowering the fourth-seeded Sharapova, who
hit six double-faults and couldn t find a way to cope
with her rival s relentless pace.
"When she stepped up her game, I was able to step
up mine as well," Williams said.
It will be Williams first appearance in the Wimbledon
final since 2012, when she won her fifth title at the
All England Club.
"I think it definitely gets better," she said. "It s been
a long time since I ve been in the final here. I just feel
really good just to be in another final, so it s really
Williams opponent will be 21-year-old Garbine
Muguruza, who beat Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2, 3-6,
6-3 in the first semifinal. She s the first Spanish woman
to advance to the Wimbledon final since Arantxa
Sanchez Vicario in 1996.
Williams has won two out her three matches against
Muguruza, but the Spaniard beat her 6-2, 6-2 in the
second round of the French Open last year. That was
Williams most lopsided loss in a Grand Slam.
"It s great for her. It s great for me," Williams said.
"She actually beat me before. She made me improve,
so she has me on my toes. It s not going to be an easy
match, so I ll be fighting a lot."
Williams is unbeaten in majors since winning last
year s US Open and this year s Australian and French
Opens. A win here would match the "Serena Slam"
she achieved in 2002-03. Williams would then need
to win the US Open to complete a true Grand Slam,
a sweep of all four majors in the same year, something
which hasn t been accomplished since Steffi Graf did
it in 1988.
Williams is also one win away from a 21st Grand
Slam title, one short of the Open era record held by
Graf. Williams extended her career record against
Sharapova to 18-2. Sharapova beat Williams in the
2004 Wimbledon final for her first Grand Slam title,
but the rivalry has been one-sided for more than a
decade. The tone in yesterday s match was set early
when Sharapova double-faulted three times in the
opening game, giving Williams the break. Williams
needed just over 30 minutes to take the first set.
Sharapova made things tighter in the second set but
double-faulted again on break point to give Williams
a 3-2 lead. Williams served out the match at love with
the three aces and a service winner that Sharapova
barely got her racket on.
Earlier, Muguruza lost six games in a row in one
stretch but regrouped against Radwanska. The Spaniard,
who saved two break points in the final game, dropped
face-first onto the grass on Centre Court after hitting
a swinging forehand volley for a winner on her first
"I don t have words to explain it," she said. "Just
happy. I worked all my life to achieve this moment,
so no words."
At deuce in the final game, Radwanska held up her
racket in the middle of the point to challenge a backhand
from Muguruza that landed near the baseline. Rad-
wanska had already hit a forehand return, and only
challenged after her ball had bounced on the other
side of the net and Muguruza lined up her next shot.
The video replay showed the ball had caught the back
of the line, giving the point to the Spaniard. Radwanska
looked in the direction of where her coach was sitting
and gestured as if they had made a mistake in chal-
lenging the call. "It was 50-50 call. I decided to chal-
lenge," Radwanska said. "Wasn t really good decision."
