Goerges, the 13-seed, used her powerful, snappy serve to her advantage while Williams remained steadfast in her groundstroke-based approach.
She is now set to face Angelique Kerber, who defeated Jeena Ostapenko in the other semi-final, in a replay of the 2016 Wimbledon final.
"I think she's the best player".
Having fallen from a year-end ranking of World No.1 in 2016 out of the Top 20 in 2017, Angelique Kerber has had a resurgence this year, compiling a 38-10 Tour-level record in 2018 and reaching at least the quarterfinals in 10 of her 12 tournaments (the exceptions being a second-round retirement in Stuttgart to Anett Kontaveit and a first-round loss in Mallorca to Alison Riske).
"She's always going out there to win the matches".
Hardly so. And Williams has made a point of raising the curtain on her rocky road back to make a larger point to women who feel overwhelmed by the changes in their bodies, emotions and priorities following childbirth. "I remember I couldn't even walk to my mail box, so it's definitely not normal for me to be in a Wimbledon final".
Kerber, who offered up only a miserly seven free points, really just had to stay calm and wait for her opponent to self-destruct and Ostapenko fell into the trap. "It's such a pleasure and a joy [to be in the final] because less than a year ago, I was going through so much".
"It's insane. I don't even know how to feel because I literally didn't think I'd do this well in my fourth tournament back", Williams said. Williams broke the ace-thumping, heavy-striking German again in the seventh game before serving out the set in 33-minutes.
But when the steely-eyed Williams imposed her iron will, the challenger was unable to reply, dropping five games straight to surrender the first set and fall behind in the second.
The Duchess of Sussex will cheer on Serena Williams who has reached her 10th Wimbledon women's singles final - just ten months after almost dying during childbirth.
In a sense, Williams has been writing this narrative - rising up, overcoming, doing the impossible - since her father, Richard, took her and sister Venus to a dilapidated tennis court in Compton, Calif., put rackets in their hands and coached them, along with their mother, into champions. So do I. She's playing so well.
"It's not inevitable for me to be playing like this", Williams said.
"Whatever happens, honestly", Williams said, "it's an incredible effort from me".
"Oh, wow. I never thought about that". "It was a tough match, Jelena was hitting hard, moving good and taking chances".
