Former champion Petra Kvitova saw off fellow Czech Lucie Safarova in straight sets to return to the Wimbledon final.
Kvitova, seeded sixth, won 7-6 (8-6) 6-1 in the first all-Czech semi-final at a Grand Slam.
The 2011 champion will face third seed Simona Halep or 13th seed Eugenie Bouchard in Saturday’s decider.
“I tried to be focused from the start of the second set. I managed to break her service in the first game and just kept it going and served well.
“I am just emotional from this match. I have two days before the final to focus but I know how it feels to lift that trophy so I will try my best to do it again.”
Kvitova and Safarova are Fed Cup team-mates and train at the same club in Prostejov.
