Wimbledon (CNN)The Wimbledon final will likely prove more difficult for Serena Williams but getting there was no problem for the world No. 1.


By Ravi Ubha, CNN

Williams reached her ninth final at the All England Club by crushing Russia's Elena Vesnina 6-2 6-0 in a quick 48 minutes Thursday and will face fourth seed Angelique Kerber for the title.

Kerber -- who stunned Williams in the Australian Open final to open her grand slam account earlier this year -- found proceedings a little harder in the second semifinal but still prevailed in two sets, 6-4 6-4, over Venus Williams.

And with that, the German quashed chances of a fifth all-Williams final at SW19.

The 50th-ranked Vesnina -- appearing in a maiden grand slam semifinal -- probably won't want to see her in-form opponent again for a while. But unfortunately for her they'll face off in doubles later Thursday.

Serena Williams improved to 9-1 in Wimbledon semifinals, with the lone player to defeat her being older sister Venus in 2000.

The world No. 1 struck 11 aces, 28 winners and a mere seven unforced errors. A continuation of that form and the 34-year-old will be looking good to collect a record-tying 22nd grand slam in the Open Era.

She won't need motivation Saturday, given that Kerber triumphed in Melbourne.
A resilient counter-puncher who has stepped up her attacking game this year, Kerber broke Venus Williams five times and limited her rival to just 57% points won on first serve.
