Flawless.

This was a masterclass. Absolutely everything was clicking today.

Less than one hour - not many players would have had a chance with the way Serena played today.

Barbie didn't play her best but honestly with the way Williams was playing she'll probably win a few more games at best I thought she tried to mix it up quite well, but Serena just read her game too well and played with so much confidence and her groundstrokes were clicking.

Barbie can leave Wimbledon with her head held high. Amazing tournament, and she's still in the doubles - win it all now with Su-wei Barbie!!

Serena's best match in over a year - and if this continues in the final, Simona's wig is going to be snatched. I just hope she doesn't get final jitters again aiming for #24.

Save to way the mixed really helped her out! Her netplay today in particular was stunning.

Expected of a Wimbledon SF. This decade, only 3 Wimbledon SFs have gone to 3 sets, and two of them involved Radwanska (she lost both though). By far the worst Slam when it comes to matches in the later rounds, all finals have sucked as of late, too.

Serena-Halep should be fun, I hope.

Simona Halep discombobulates Serena Willians 6-2 6-2 in 56 minutes.

I don't think the result would have been much different... if Strycova could breadstick her 6-1, imagine what Serena could do with her return.

Re: Wimbledon SF: Serena def. Strycova 6-1 6-2

Strycova scrub, entered on the court defeated already mentally from the locker room. Serena didn't even had a drop of sweat. This was an easy training session for Williams, she will come fresh and relaxed onto the match against Simona, but maybe is better this way because she wasn't been yet tested this tournament.
If Simona keeps her level of today, she have a chance. Good luck Simona!

Re: Wimbledon SF: Serena def. Strycova 6-1 6-2

Lovely, flawless, dominating. BUT, here's my concern. Same set up like last year when she played lower ranked players and laid a duck vs Kerber in the final. So, I'm not sure what to think going into the final Saturday. Halep will be tough and for me its going to be a test of if Serena can handle the nerves. She will be the favorite going in and Halep will be a better retriever. So, I don't know. I will absolutely not be shocked if Halep wins, but I'm hoping Serena can keep up this level of play and manage her nerves in the final.

Re: Wimbledon SF: Serena def. Strycova 6-1 6-2

We made it, 4 years in the making, we are finally here, Serena Williams against Simona Halep in a Grand Slam final. Should have been USO 2015, it will be Wimbledon 2019. Really the best final we could have asked for. If Serena wins she finally gets that magical number 24. If Simona wins she closes a lot of mouths on here, either way we'll probably get another 3-set banger from them and I can't wait for Saturday.

Strycova did great getting here but Serena was just too good today, not much more she could have done.
