Simona Halep is targeting her second Grand Slam singles title

Simona Halep produced a dominant performance to defeat eighth seed Elina Svitolina and reach her first Wimbledon final.

The former world No 1 appeared set for a lengthy battle with Svitolina when the opening two games lasted 20 minutes, but the 27-year-old Halep won them both as she sealed a 6-1 6-3 victory in 72 minutes.

Halep, who has only dropped one set during the tournament, is the first Romanian woman to reach a Wimbledon singles showpiece and will face either seven-times champion Serena Williams or Barbora Strycova on Saturday.
