    Serena Williams is stunned she's in another Wimbledon final

    Serena Williams is stunned she's in another Wimbledon final

    The eight-time champion has outclassed Julia Goerges in straight sets in just her 13th match back since returning after more than a year's maternity leave.

    Williams says she didn't expect to do this well in her fourth tournament back.

    Williams will face fellow former world number one Angelique Kerber in the final after she beat Jelena Ostapenko, also in straight sets.

    Meanwhile, Kiwi Michael Venus and his South African playing partner Raven Klaasen are through to the men's doubles final at the All England Club.

    Michael Venus is currently in action in the mixed doubles quarter-finals.
