With the grass season nearing its end, it is the final showdown for the women’s tournament as we see a mouth-watering clash between Venus Williams and GarbineMuguruza in the finals of Wimbledon 2017.
Williams is advancing to the finals with a win over the local favourite in Johanna Konta, shattering the Britons’ dream of getting the title home.
Williams is currently at her peak in this game of tennis with some of the very best plays being put on display. She thumped Konta in a 3 set thriller. Williams took the first set 6-4 with the American showing no mercy to her opponent in capitalising on her errors.
After the completion of first set, it wasn’t a tough tie for Williams as she cornered the Brit in a dominant display from her end and won the match in straight sets 6-4 6-2.
With this win, Williams has just conceded a single set throughout the tournament. Speaking of her contrary GarbineMuguruza, she has had a decent clay court season with her recent performances at the Championship to firhter spur the Spaniard’s confidence.
Muguruza has made some remarkable performances on her way to the finals with the Spaniard shutting the doors on the faces of the WTA No. 1, Angelique Kerber and Svetlana Kuznetsova in the R16 and quarters respectively and surging two major back to back upsets.
Her recent performance against Rybarikova in her straight set win, 6-1 6-1 was simply outstanding. Muguruza was a dictator of the game since the start and with this win she made sure to make her intent of winning the title as clear as a glass.
Williams is playing for her 6th Wimbledon title while Muguruza for her maiden. Both have met each other on 4 occasions with score favouring the American with 3 wins to 1. They last met at Rome Masters where the Spaniard thumped the American in a 3 set tie to win the match, 6-2 3-6 6-2.
Despite of Williams’ experience in the very tournament, Muguruza has a mental advantage over the World No.12 from her recent win at Rome.
It would be an intriguing tie to watch for as the 5time Wimbledon champ clashes swords with the in-form Spaniard, GarbineMuguruza for the title.
