Angelique Kerber defeated Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko to book her place in the Wimbledon finals on Friday
The German Tennis player reached the second Wimbledon final of her career with a 6-3 6-3 win on Centre Court.
The 30-year-old lost 2016 final to Serena Williams - and the pair is expected to meet again if the American beats Julia Gorges today.
"It is such a great feeling to be back in the final and to play on Centre Court is always a great experience," said Kerber.
"I'm happy and proud to be in another Grand Slam final, I will just try to play like I did and just focus on my game.
"Jelena is always fighting until the last point, hits the ball really hard, and I was trying to stay focused. It was quite tough but I'm happy to be through."
Ostapenko, who won the 2017 French Open title, was playing in her first Wimbledon semi-final.
Meanwhile, Kerber won both the Australian Open and US Open in 2016 and will have a chance to win her third Grand Slam title on Saturday.
