Serena Williams has proven yet again she is one of the greatest tennis players in history after securing a place in an 11th Wimbledon final.

The 37-year-old also becomes the oldest woman to contest a grand slam final in the professional era.

Williams, who already has seven Wimbledon titles to her name, is seeking a record-equaling 24th major title win which would take her level with Australian Margaret Court.

She now faces Romanian Simona Halep in Saturday’s final after demolishing Czech Barbora Strycova – who defeated Brit Jo Konta – in straight sets in a brutal match that lasted just 59 minutes.

Fans on social media were quick to praise the mother-of-one for her success, with one writing ‘You go Queen, big congratulations!!’
