In an age where opponents come and go; Serena Williams keeps fighting 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.”
