Chinese tennis player Zheng Jie has failed to reach the final at Wimbledon as she lost to Serena Williams 6-2, 7-6 on Thursday.

The first Chinese player to reach a Grand Slam semi-final went from looking overmatched to looking right at home on Center Court against Serena Williams in the semi-finals.

Jiang Hongwei, coach of Zheng Jie, said her performance was still impressive.

"Her rival's skills and psychical conditions are better than Zheng Jie. Confronted with such an incredible player, Zheng Jie made a good performance. She even had a set point in the second set."

Zheng Jie was the first female wild-card entrant to reach the semi-finals at the All England Club and second at any Grand Slam.

In Saturday's final, Serena will face her older sister, defending champion Venus Williams.
