LONDON (AP) - Petra Kvitova beat fellow Czech left-hander Lucie Safarova 7-6 (6), 6-1 on Thursday to advance to the Wimbledon final and a chance to win her second title at the All England Club.

Kvitova, the only player born in the 1990s to have won a major title - here in 2011 - improved her record to 25-5 on the Wimbledon grass and she's made at least the quarterfinals five years in a row.

She will play the winner of the later semifinal between French Open finalist Simona Halep and Eugenie Bouchard.

It was the first Grand Slam semifinal between two Czech women. It marked No. 6-seeded Kvitova's 15th consecutive win against a lefthander and she beat 23rd-seeded Safarova for the sixth time in a row.
