Simona Halep needed just 72 minutes to book her place in the Wimbledon final for the first time in her career.
The former world number one overcame Elina Svitolina 6-1 6-3 in the first semi-final on Centre Court and she will be hoping to become the first Romanian woman to be crowned champion at SW19 on Saturday.
A tight match looked on the cards when the opening two games lasted 20 minutes, but Halep broke Svitolina three times in the opening set before taking a 1-0 lead at the sixth opportunity.
Svitolina battled back in the second set to stay with her opponent but her resistance began to falter and she her serve when 3-2 ahead with Halep winning going on to win the next three to reach her first Wimbledon final.
"It is one of the best moments of my life," Halep said. "I'm really excited but also nervous. I'm just trying to enjoy it as much as possible.
"It was not as easy as the score shows. I fought really hard, [Svitolina] is an amazing player and it's always tough to play against her."
Reflecting on her loss, Svitolina added: "I didn't take my chances which was disappointing. You want to play well, you want to make a statement that you are there for the fight.
"Simona played unbelievably today. The score was a little bit of me making poor decisions and her playing unbelievable [tennis]."
