William sisters to meet in Grand Slam final for ninth time
The World No 2 continued her resurgent start to 2017 by ending the fairy-tale run of Mirjana Lucic-Baroni in two sets (6-2 6-1), while 17th-ranked Venus, 36, came from a set down to best American compatriot CoCo Vandeweghe (6-7 [3-7] 6-2 6-3).
"She is my toughest opponent, no-one has ever beaten me as much as Venus.
"I feel no matter what that we have both won after all we have been through. I know a Williams is going to win this tournament."
After her semi-final win, Venus said: "That moment was just joy.
"It would be beautiful [to win the final]. Clearly these matches are challenging, physically, mentally, all of that. It's a challenge. But I'm up for the challenge.
"If I'm here, that's why I'm here. I'm not just here to hang out halfway around the world. This is a long way to come for a hangout session."
