Experience not necessarily an advantage for Venus Williams

Venus I'm trying to represent the Williams sisters as best I can

Venus Williams will play in the Wimbledon final for the ninth time in her career and first time since 2009 after defeating Great Britain's Johanna Konta in the semifinals, 6-4, 6-2, on Centre Court on Thursday.

The 23-year-old Spaniard ruthlessly ended the dream run of unseeded Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1 on Centre Court, setting up a showdown with five-time victor Venus Williams tomorrow.

"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. I miss her a lot and I look forward to her coming back. With a win at Wimbledon on Saturday, Williams could become the oldest Grand Slam champion in 109 years.

But that doesn't stop her being amazed by her opponent's thirst for more success, having already won seven Grand Slam titles.

Muguruza first came into prominence by reaching the fourth round of the 2014 Australian Open, where she scored an upset over Caroline Wozniacki en route.

Williams will be seeking her sixth Wimbledon championship and eighth Grand Slam singles trophy overall.

After winning the French Open past year, Muguruza looked all the way the natural heir to Serena Williams as the next dominant force in women's tennis.

"She did what she does well, she dictated the match from the very first ball till the very last one", Konta said. "I did think of that, and I tried to do the things she would do - I don't know that I play exactly the same way she does, but I really tried to be inspired by it". I think my experience was important. I saw she was playing very good, very talented.

"Just went out there and didn't expect anything", Muguruza said. "The last time she played Serena in the finals".

"Even if the score is 6-1, 4-1, or something, you're never calm, no matter what happens", Muguruza said. "I'm proud of her, everyone is proud of her". It was more new for me also.

Rohan Bopanna and Gabriela Dabrowski took the first set 7-6 but lost the next two 4-6, 5-7.
