  1. LONDON, England - Please or Register to view links kept her dominance over Please or Register to view links going on Thursday, beating her longtime rival in straight sets to reach her milestone 25th Grand Slam final at Please or Register to view links.

    Williams had beaten Sharapova 16 times in a row going in and with her legendary brand of power and accuracy extended that to 17 in a row, rushing out to a 6-2, 5-3 lead and, after Sharapova fought off a match point to hold serve for 6-2, 5-4, Williams calmly stepped up to the line and served it out.

    The No.1-seeded Williams finished the No.4-seeded Sharapova off with a flurry of aces, 6-2, 6-4.

    Williams finished the match with almost twice as many winners to unforced errors, 29 to 15.

    "I'm really excited," the World No.1 told the BBC right after the match. "I was a little nervous out there. The semifinals of Please or Register to view links - it's been a long time since I've been this far in this tournament!

    "I think Maria played really well. She stepped up her game, and I was able to step mine up as well. And it's the semifinals of Please or Register to view links - you never want to lose, and you want to do the best you can."

    She's now into the 25th Grand Slam final of her illustrious career, putting together a 20-4 record in the first 24, winning six Australian Opens, three French Opens, five Wimbledons and six US Opens.

    The four losses? Please or Register to view links twice ( Please or Register to view links in 2001 and Please or Register to view links in 2008), Sharapova once ( Please or Register to view links in 2004) and Please or Register to view links once ( Please or Register to view links in 2011). She's won her last seven major finals.

    This one could be a little different, though. Awaiting her in this final is the No.20-seeded Please or Register to view links, who beat No.13-seeded Please or Register to view links in the other semifinal ( Please or Register to view links).

    The Spanish WTA Rising Star has a win over Williams, too, a very famous one in fact - she beat her in the second round of the 2014 Please or Register to view links, 6-2, 6-2, the worst Grand Slam loss of her entire career.

    Please or Register to view links, including a win since that Please or Register to view links stunner.

    "She's beaten me before, and she's improved too," Williams said. "It's not going to be an easy match."

    "It's the best final you can play," Muguruza said. "Serena in the Please or Register to view links final is the hardest match you can have. If you want to win a Grand Slam, when you dream, you say, 'I want Serena in the final.'

    "She's one of the best players in all these years. So it's obviously the best challenge to have."
