2012 Wimbledon Championships: Serena Williams Headed To Final

Serena Williams advanced to the final at the 2012 Championships at Wimbledon for the seventh time in her career after a win in straight sets in the semifinals. With 24 aces, a new Wimbledon record for women's singles, Williams serve was her greatest asset as she was broken in just one game to defeat No. 2 ranked Victoria Azarenka of Belarus.

Iin the first set Williams beat Azarenka 6-3, however, she required a tiebreak to win the second set after she was broken in her first game in her last two matches.

The No. 6 seeded Williams has defeated three seeded opponents in her path to the final, including two players, Azarenka and Petra Kvitova, that owned a lower seed than the American. Now she'll face the world's No. 3 ranked player, Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland in the final, following Radwanska's straight sets victory over Angelique Kerber.

The women's singles championship final between Williams and Radwanska will be played on Saturday. For a complete scoreboard and results, please check out the Sports Illustrated Wimbledon Scoreboard.
