15 July, 2017, 12:08
Garbine Muguruza is aiming to become the first Spanish woman in 23 years to win Wimbledon - and yet again a Williams sister, Venus stands in her way. He came back fit and refreshed and won the Australian Open in January for his record-extending 18th Grand Slam title and first anywhere in 4½ years.
- Muguruza is guaranteed to return to the top five in the rankings if she wins.
- Muguruza is bidding to become the eighth active player to win multiple Grand Slam titles. Only ten players have played in more.

Then there have been three Grand Slam champions who have retired very soon after reaching their peak. Silic has one, the 2014 U.S. Open. Standing in her way is the 2015 finalist Muguruza. Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams have taken breaks for parenthood.
- In contrast, Muguruza has won just three WTA singles titles, including her French Open victory a year ago. In fact, she was fined £5,730 ($7,500) this week for declining to do a mandatory post-match TV interview.
'I think my mind is more equipped this time because the more experience you get, the more you know how to deal with these situations, ' she said.
"It was very surprising to reach the final because I thought it would be hard but now I know how to play on grass".
- By reaching final this fortnight, Venus is the only player to have reached the fourth round or better in the last six Grand Slams.
Muguruza does not think there is any magic formula to the longevity of Williams: 'I think she just loves to play and she enjoys going out there. It is hard not to root for Venus to carve out a little more history, nearly stepping out of Serena's limelight, but she will have to battle hard for it.
Williams appeared to surprise Jo Konta on Thursday with the relentless quality of her game, especially on her serve. She has proven that when she is on a hot streak, she can be unstoppable, as she was over her two weeks at French Open in 2016, where she even dispatched off Serena easily.
Everyone assumed she was washed up, although the subsequent discovery of Sjogren's Syndrome may have been a factor. Only one Spaniard has previously lifted the Wimbledon women's title - Conchita Martinez, who has been coaching Muguruza at this tournament.
Venus Williams contests her 9th Wimbledon & 16th major final. She'll be hoping to get this match done in straight sets, and after beating Johanna Konta, she looks back to her best, although Muguruza is playing the best tennis since her victory at the French Open a year ago.
