Williams aims for 'Serena Slam'
Five-time competition winner Serena Williams will take on Garbine Muguruza of Spain in the women's 2015 Wimbledon final.
Serena Williams is through to the Wimbledon final where she will meet Spain's Garbine Muguruza and will be aiming to win a third Grand Slam of the year.
After victories in the Australian and the French Opens earlier in 2015 and a US Open victory last year, beating the Spaniard in Saturday's final will mean Williams holds all four Grand Slam titles at the same time.
She could then focus on winning in New York later in the year to complete a calendar clean sweep of the majors which would also place her level with Steffi Graf on 22 Grand Slam singles titles.
Williams, a five-time winner at Wimbledon, has not had success in the last two years at the All England Club, reaching the fourth round in 2013 and the third last year.
However, in this tournament, she has once again displayed the kind of form that justifies her status as number one in the world.
Arguably her greatest test so far came in the third round against Britain's Heather Watson.
At one set all, Watson led by a double-break in the third and served for a 4-0 lead. She then served for the match at 5-4 but the American's will to win got her through a difficult challenge.
She then beat sister Venus in straight sets and recovered from a set down to beat Victoria Azarenka in the quarter-finals.
In the semi-finals, up against Maria Sharapova, she had not lost to the Russian since 2004 and was never in trouble in this match with the number three seed double faulting twice to concede the first game and always under pressure on her own serve.
Williams secured another break and took the first set 6-2 in just over half an hour on court. With Sharapova especially vulnerable on her second serve, she continued to struggle with double faults and another, on break point, handed Williams a game for a 3-2 lead in the second set.
The top seed held her serve throughout, failing to face a single break point throughout the entire match and secured victory in 79 minutes.
Her opponent in the final, Muguruza, is through to her first Grand Slam final and has impressed throughout the tournament, securing victories over Angelique Kerber, Caroline Wozniacki and Timea Bacsinszky before meeting Agnieszka Radwanska in the semi-finals.
She was in total control for the first set and a half against the Pole, winning the first 6-2 and breaking for a 3-1 lead in the second.
However Radwanska came into the contest varying her game to try and unsettle the Spaniard and she took the next six games in a row to clinch the second set and force a decider.
That six games included a break at the start of the final set but Muguruza broke straight back and reasserted her control of the match. She broke again for a 4-2 lead and at 5-3 served for the match.
It wasn't a comfortable hold; Radwanska forcing two break points but Muguruza fought them off and, finally on match point, her big serve pushed Radwanska onto the defensive and a forehand volley secured the victory and a clash with Williams in the Wimbledon final.
The finalists have met three times in the past, all in Grand Slam events. Williams won their first meeting, in the second round of the Australian Open in straight sets in 2013.
Muguruza gained revenge at the same stage of the French Open last year, causing a shock by winning 6-2 6-2.
However, Williams won their most recent meeting, in the fourth round of this year's Australian Open, coming from a set down to win in three on her way to the title.
