Serena Williams Moves on to Wimbledon Final

It has been two years since Serena Williams has competed at Wimbledon and she wanted to put everyone on notice that she is back. The four-time singles champion fired off a blazing 24 aces past her opposition, Victoria Azarenka, which was a new record. "I'm so excited," Williams said after advancing to her seventh final at the All England Club. "I've been working so hard, I really wanted it. Victoria is a great player. She was playing really well." Placed in the sixth seed, the awe-inspiring American beat the reigning Australian Open champion from Belarus, 6-3, 7-6 (8-6) on Centre Court.

Up next for Compton's own is Agnieszka Radwanska. The third-seeded tennis pro is also the first Polish woman to reach the Wimbledon championship match in 75 years. The two will meet at Centre Court this Saturday.
