Next on court, top seed Serena Williams faced Petra Kvitova. Kvitova created her first break point in just the fifth game for a 3-2 lead.
The unseeded Czech battled back from a 4-0 tie-break deficit and saved two set points before a crunching Williams serve won the first set 7-6.
Williams found the second set significantly easier to negotiate. Kvitova was only able to show flashes of her capabilities. She handed Williams some easy points and eventually succumbed 7-6, 6-2. Williams will be aiming for a fourth Wimbledon singles title when she faces Zvonareva in the final on Saturday.
Serena Williams, Defending Champion said, "Well, I'm hoping to still peak in the final. I won't know until I play. Hopefully I can serve better than I did today and just be more consistent off the ground, and, um, just do a little... In the final, you really want to play your best and hope for the best."
