She was never really gone in my opinion, but the Serena we all know and love came back with a vengeance Thursday. She made her way to the Wimbledon final in record-setting fashion by serving 24 aces. She is also the first player in her 30s to reach the final since Martina Navratilova made it there in 1990.
Serena overcame her opponent, Victoria Azarenka, in straight sets. She will face Agniezka Radwanska in the final on Saturday. This will be the first Grand Slam final for Radwanska, and she will need all the help she can get if Serena is on her game like this.
Can we all forget about that fluke of a first-round loss in the French Open now? When Serena is on fire like she was during this match, it is fair to say that she is unstoppable.
