Pliskova to face Barty in Wimbledon final

Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic will play Australia’s Ashleigh Barty in Saturday’s Wimbledon final after both players reached the championship match for the first time on Thursday.

For the 29-year-old eighth seed it is her second Grand Slam final — she lost the 2016 US Open — and she is the first Czech finalist since Petra Kvitova won her second title in 2014. “It sounds amazing to be in the final as I never got past the fourth round here before,” said Pliskova who squandered a...
