Williams Slams Sharapova To Reach Wimbledon Final

Serena Williams inflicted more misery on her old adversary Maria Sharapova with a ruthless Wimbledon semi-final victory on Centre Court.

World number one Williams has become Sharapova's nemesis since losing twice to the Russian in 2004 - one of which came in the final on the famous grass court at Wimbledon.

Sharapova was unable to claim a first victory over the all-conquering American in 11 years, failing to rise to the occasion and enduring more troubles on serve as she was beaten 6-2 6-4 to stretch her losing streak against the top seed to 17 matches.

Williams will be a strong favourite to beat surprise package Garbine Muguruza when she goes in search of a sixth Wimbledon title on Saturday.

The legendary 33-year-old will also complete a second 'Serena Slam' - holding all four grand slam titles - if she prevails yet again this weekend and would head into the US Open in the hunt for her first calendar Grand Slam
