Wimbledon Women's Final 2017

Muguruza's progression marks the third straight year in which the Spaniard, victor in the 2016 French Open, has reached a major final as she continues to establish herself as one of the best in the world. "I know how to do that a lot better", said Venus ahead of her 16th major final. "I like to take courage in the fact that I've been playing well this tournament".

With Serena absent from Wimbledon while she prepares to have her first child later this year, Venus has seized the opportunity to impose her ferocious will to win on a series of opponents nearly half her age. "I have to go out there and take it", said Williams, who reached her first major final 20 years ago in NY.

Last year BBC host John Inverdale congratulated Murray on becoming "the person ever to win two Olympic tennis gold medals", to which Murray shot back 'I think Venus and Serena have won about four each'.

By a twist of fate Martinez will be in Muguruza's corner on Saturday, as she has been for the past fortnight in the absence of her regular coach Sam Sumyk, whose wife is expecting a baby.

- Williams has won seven grand slam singles titles in the Open Era, only seven women have more; an eighth title would draw her level with Billie Jean King for Open Era titles. Since then, her form has been patchy. I think I'm here because I've been working not only the last few days, but longer time, getting ready for this kind of moment.

Wall St set to open higher as data dims rate hike chances
JPMorgan Chase was down 0.9 percent, while shares of Citigroup C.N were down 0.4 percent and Wells Fargo WFC .N fell 1.1 percent. That compares with the 6.7 billion daily average for the past 20 trading days, according to Thomson Reuters data.

Since winning her maiden Grand Slam title at the French Open a year ago, Muguruza had endured something of a sophomore slump as her ranking dropped out of the top 10. Muguruza would also become just the second Spanish player to win the women's singles title at Wimbledon, 23 years after the first (Conchita Martinez, 1994 - Muguruza's Wimbledon mentor).

"I definitely want to be the one who takes the big one", Muguruza said.

"I always stare at the wall where there are all the names of the previous winners".

"I have to believe that, and I know she has to believe that". "She's been really playing well on grass". Before I do something, they both decided. "In the past years, you see the Williams surname a lot", Muguruza said Friday. "So I look forward to putting a Spanish name back there".
