Eugenie Bouchard continued her relentless march to the top of the women's game by defeating Simona Halep to reach her first grand slam final at Wimbledon.

It was a meeting of the two most improved players on the circuit but, after Halep's run to the French Open final, this time it is Bouchard who will bid for a first slam title when she takes on Petra Kvitova on Saturday.

Luck was certainly on 20-year-old Bouchard's side, with Halep turning her ankle early in the match and then seeing a net-cord go against her at a crucial stage of the tie-break.

The second set was all Bouchard and the Canadian, the only player to reach the semi-finals at every slam so far this season, clinched a 7-6 (7/5) 6-2 victory after an hour and 35 minutes.
