Muguruza eyeing Wimbledon history too

"I think my experience just helped a lot".

"I'm different, but not very different".

Venus Williams will bid for to become the oldest major title victor in Open Era history when she takes on Garbine Muguruza in Saturday's Wimbledon final. This year has been fantastic in terms of my play, playing deep into the big events.

- Muguruza is attempting to become just the second Spanish woman, after Conchita Martinez (coaching her this fortnight) to win Wimbledon in the Open Era.

Venus has enjoyed a stellar career, albeit often overshadowed by her younger sister Serena, winning seven Grand Slam titles but remarkably she is still competing at the top echelons of women's tennis.

With her sister out on maternity leave, Venus Williams has ensured that the Williams name could still be in the history books after Serena's two-year dominance.

She is a skilful volleyer, her serve needs no introduction and while her forehand can occasionally break down under presser, her range of shots and her power make her very tough to get past - just ask Konta!

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'. "But to have her by my side gives me also this little confidence on having someone that has won before".

The American star, who stormed into the Wimbledon finals for the ninth time, is also bidding to clinch her first Grand Slam title in nine years, after she last lifted the coveted trophy in 2008. However, the last time a 37-year-old reached the final, it was a Spaniard who crashed the party.

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

Her opponent is adamant she won't be playing at her age but is full of admiration for the American. The 4th round pitted her against World No.1 Angelique Kerber, and she squeezed through 6-4 in a deciding 3rd set. "In the past years, you see the Williams surname a lot", Muguruza said Friday.

This was her 10th semifinal in 20 Wimbledon appearances; Konta had never been past the second round at the grass-court tournament before this year.

"It was just a very surprising moment when you reach a final in a tournament where you thought it was going to be hard, but right now I know how to play more on grass".

British hopes flew high with Johanna Konta, until the vastly more experienced older Williams played ideal attacking tennis, effectively anchoring the Brit and leaving her on the back foot.
