WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Serena Williams will play in the Wimbledon final for the 11th time and will be looking for her eighth title at the All England Club.
The 23-time Grand Slam singles champion beat Barbora Strycova 6-1, 6-2 in the semifinals on Centre Court.
Williams converted four of her five break points, while Strycova failed on all three of her chances.
The 11th-seeded American, who lost in last year's final, will face Simona Halep in Saturday's championship match.
Williams needs one more major title to equal the all-time record of 24 set by Margaret Court.
