Wimbledon: Venus ends Konta's run, makes first final in 8 years

Wimbledon: Venus ends Konta's run, makes first final in 8 years

Venus' five championships at Wimbledon have come over Lindsay Davenport twice, Justine Henin, Marion Bartoli and Serena.

Williams is now through to the final, hoping to add to her five singles and six doubles titles at the All England Club. "It's a long two weeks".

Garbine Muguruza is looking every bit the title contender at Wimbledon. It came down to the day, and Venus played better than me.

"In terms of the home support, I feel very excited and very humbled by it".

And Venus revealeded she will get some advice from her younger sister ahead of the contest.

'It's going to be, you know, like a historic final again'. On the next point, Williams hit a forehand winner down the line to win and raised her arms in triumph. Both Garbine and I play so well on grass.

Muguruza appeared with heavy tape on her left thigh but there was no sign of any hindrance to her movement. This will be the 37-year-old American's 10th Wimbledon semifinal and 22nd at all majors. "I wanted to give them more, but I didn't and I was sad for them". The following year, she won the title at the French Open. "The level she's playing at is unprecedented", said Venus. Muguruza swiftly held to close out a brutal 30-minute 6-1 first set win.

So Rybarikova managed to take the match beyond the hour mark, but not far beyond. Rybarikova knocked out the new WTA No. 1 with a three-set comeback that included one of the best points of the tournament. "So she just knows how to prepare, how to train, what to do. I'm sure to a certain extent, definitely", Konta said. "It won't be a given but I'll give it my all", Williams said.

Indeed, the slick surface lends itself to Williams' power-based game, making her terrific serve that much tougher to handle and giving her groundstrokes extra sting. They have never before played on grass, though.

In the first game Muguruza held with no problem whatsoever but when Rybarikova came to serve she never looked confident. "She just has to play tennis, and not worry about who's favored or who isn't favored". I tried to do the things she would do.

After losing the Australian Open final in January, the world number 11 would be the oldest Wimbledon champion in the Open era - breaking her sister Serena's record - if she collects her eighth Grand Slam crown on Saturday. Williams is the oldest Wimbledon finalist since then.

Yet for Williams, they've always been sisters first, competitors second.

The final four at Wimbledon sets up four very different players who are on the cusp of winning it all.

"I definitely think experience helps".

Williams said she thinks Konta plays with "a very similar style" - which, coming from her, is certainly a compliment.
