Petra Kvitova hit nine aces, including three in a row in the final game of the first set, to reach her first Grand Slam final. She will face either Maria Sharapova.

Petra Kvitova is the first left-handed player to reach the Wimbledon final since Martina Navratilova in 1994. Navratilova, who won the title nine times and was in the crowd on Thursday, and Ann Jones (in 1969) are the only ones to win the championship dish at the All England Club.
