The Women’s semifinals were a brute display of power hitting. With just the two women left in the draw, we at Essentially Sports preview the Women’s Final of Wimbledon 2016.
1. Serena’s dominance
Serena Williams would be chasing glory, as she takes on Angelique Kerber of Germany in the final of this year’s Championships. Following her second round struggle against fellow American Christina McHale, Serena has been absolutely ruthless, bagelling her opponents in 3 of the 8 sets played since. All in all, she showed that her second round match was a mere hiccup, and that her mission still lies to be accomplished. Another Grand Slam final, another shot at glory. A win on Saturday’s final will tie her with Steffi Graff for the most Grand Slam titles in the Open Era (22). Having etched her name in history books right through her career, the significance of this record tops it all off and will be the sole motivation that would drive her on Saturday evening. Of course Kerber beat her sister, but does that count? Being denied twice in two Grand Slam finals this year already, Serena would look to get back to winning ways and defend her trophy.
