    The Romanian will play Serena Williams in the final after both cruised through their semi finals with straight sets wins over Elina Svitolina and Barbora Strycova .

    Meanwhile kiwi Michael Venus and his doubles partner Raven Klaasen have been knocked out in the tournament's semi-finals.

    Venus is happy with the result, despite falling one game short of their efforts at the All England Club last year.
