Marketa Vondrousova became the first unseeded player to reach a Wimbledon women’s singles final after ending Elina Svitolina’s inspired run.

Vondrousova, 24, had never gone past the second round at the All England Club until this year.

But she is now one win from glory after beating Ukraine’s Svitolina – also unseeded after giving birth nine months ago – in a 6-3 6-3 win.

Vondrousova will play Aryna Sabalenka or Ons Jabeur in Saturday’s final.

Belarusian second seed Sabalenka meets Tunisian sixth seed Jabeur in Thursday’s second semi-final, which follows on from the first match on Centre Court.

Whoever advances, it is guaranteed there will be a first-time champion at the All England Club.

“I can’t really believe,” said Vondrousova, who had never played on Centre Court before.

“I’m just so happy. Elina is such a fighter and also a great person. It was such a tough match.”
