Muguruza Stands Between Venus, Record as Oldest Grand Slam Winner

Serena Williams Has a Poster of Herself in Her Home

Garbine Muguruza admitted she's in awe of Venus Williams being in the Wimbledon final at the age of 37, as the American bids to become the oldest female Grand Slam champion in Open Era history.

"She just loves to play and she enjoys going out there, that's what it shows when she keeps playing, even though she has achieved so many things".

Sports fans will getting their TVs and couches situated, their strawberries and cream ready, get brushed up on their Wimbledon betting tips and gear up for fantastic weekend of tennis in the world's most important and historic tennis event.

The seven-time Grand Slam champion has had to battle her way into contention at the major tournaments over recent years after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, Sjogren's Syndrome, in 2011.

She has won five of her six matches without dropping a set, the only blot coming when she had to come from a set down to defeat Wang Qiang in the second round.

Both players are riding high on confidence, but Venus has as added edge, knowing that she has beaten Muguruza three times out of the four that they have played in the past. "She knows how to prepare, how to train, what to do".

Muguruza, the 14th seed, said she felt far better mentally prepared for the final this time.

The Brahmaputra River and its tributaries have submerged around 2,500 villages and destroyed over one lakh hectares of cropland. Unfortunately, it involved crossing highway 37 where the vehicles collided with the animals.

However, she has played some of her best tennis over the past year, reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals last year and the Australian Open final this year.

"I'm different, but not very different". Navratilova was playing in her 12 Wimbledon final while Martinez was playing in her first.

"I've played a lot of finals here, it's been a blessing", Venus said ahead of Saturday's final. Muguruza lost only set too, against the German Angelique Kerber in the fourth round.

Hingis, who won five Grand Slam singles titles, is happy to concentrate now on doubles.

"Serena's always in my corner and usually it's her in these finals and I'm trying my best to represent Williams family as best I can", Venus told the "BBC". 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. She hasn't faced a hard-serving player like Venus in this tournament before, but her renewed desire and belief could take her over the finish line.

Last meeting: Muguruza won 6-2, 3-6, 6-2, quarter-finals, 2017 Rome Masters. She attempted to regain her composure before telling the moderator, "Maybe I should go", and then left the room. Now, knocking on the door for a title. Mugurza, however, is determined to do whatever it takes to once again halt a Williams' charge in the final.
