Federer into 11th Wimbledon final; faces Cilic for 8th title

15 Juillet 2017

At one point the American contested three consecutive matches against opponents who were born in the year she debuted at the All England Club: Naomi Osaka, Ana Konjuh and French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko.

In a high-quality final, Muguruza defeated 37-year-old Williams 7-5 6-0 to add a Wimbledon trophy to her 2016 French Open title. She floored World No 1 Angelique Kerber and then edged past Slovakian first-timer Magdalena Rybarikova to enter her second Wimbledon final. This is Muguruza's third career grand slam final appearance, and she hopes to win her second title.

Venus Williams, often overshadowed by her sister, has found glory at Wimbledon may times.

Johanna Konta's ambitions of becoming the first British female victor at Wimbledon since Virginia Wade in 1977 were ended by Venus Williams while Muguruza dismissed Magdalena Rybarikova, the story of the tournament, in convincing fashion.

Wimbledon comes to a close this weekend, and a few familiar faces are going to be appearing in both the men's and women's finals.

"So I have more information about the situation".

"I definitely have a lot more to improve on", Konta said.

"All my dreams came true here as a player and to have another chance to go for number eight now is a great feeling".

"Right now I know how to play more on grass".

Muguruza has enlisted the help of 1994 Wimbledon champion and fellow Spaniard Conchita Martinez for her All England Club campaign.

We can expect some long rallies, and athletic shot-making and there is very little between the in terms of time spent on court.

But when I listen to Muguruza talking about concentrating on her side of the net and executing to perfection, I realise how much that strategy is working for her. Now Venus has walked through that open door and into a moment like this, 20 years after she first played Wimbledon as a teenager.

"I've never had this time off before, or if I have I've been injured and it's really different to be injured as opposed to be expecting", she said.

"I would sum up my whole Wimbledon experience as memorable".

"I definitely feel like there's no reason why I would not be able to be in a position to win a title like this one day", Konta said.

But she has rediscovered her mojo on grass and will climb to fifth when the new rankings are confirmed next week. Muguruza is easily playing some of the best tennis we've seen from her since that 2015 season.

"I'm usually more of a night person but with my pregnancy I wake up in the morning a lot earlier and I go to bed really early, like 9 or 10 p.m., which is really insane for me", she said. In 2006, he went on to win the title in four sets against Rafael Nadal, while in 2008, he lost to Nadal over five sets in what many consider the greatest match of all-time.
