Wimbledon 2016: Serena Williams storms into ninth final

London: Top seed Serena Williams crushed Russian Elena Vesnina in the semis of the Wimbledon to seal the final spot on Thursday. 

Six-time Wimbledon champion, Serena, took mere 48 minutes to book the final berth by beating Vesnina 6-2, 6-0.

If Serena wins the final, it will be her 22nd Grand Slam title, which will help her equal the Open Era record.

The American fired 11 aces, 28 winners and committed just seven unforced errors, breaking serve five times to reach her 28th Grand Slam final.
Vesnina won just three points off the Williams serve in the first set and none in the second.

After beating Vesnina, Serena stated: "I'm very happy. I was really focused today. We've had tough matches before and I knew she could bring it to me on this surface.

"I can't believe I'm in the final this year. I'm 0-2 this year so I'm determined to win one. I want Venus to win, but Kerber would be another good match."
