Osaka, has now reached her fourth major title match and stretched her winning streak to 20 matches by claiming the last eight points.

At the Court Osaka said, "I don't know if there's any little kids out here today, but I was a little kid watching her play," Osaka, 23, said about Williams, 39, "and just to be on the court playing against her, for me, is a dream."

Osaka will face either Karolina Muchova or American Jennifer Brady in the final.

"I could have won. I could have been up 5-love," said Williams. "I just made so many errors." "Too many mistakes there," she said. "Easy mistakes."
