Two months ago she withdrew from her French Open last 16 match against Russia's Maria Sharapova due to health problems just hours before the encounter was planned to start.
The 36-year-old will be the first mother to compete in a Wimbledon final since Australia's Evonne Goolagong in 1980.
The American is quite the queen of Centre Court, whether she's swinging her racket or engaging with the fandom.
A jubilant Williams was back giving the crowd a one-arm raised victory twirl after reaching a 10th Wimbledon final when her opponent swiped a lob behind the baseline.
Four tournaments after her pregnancy, Serena is back where he'd always wanted to be, in contention to tie Australia's Margaret Court on 24 Grand Slam singles titles, the all-time record.
