Serena Williams is 'disappointed' she has no bizarre pregnancy cravings

15 Juillet 2017

Garbiñe Muguruza has been crowned Wimbledon champion after beating the seven-time grand-slam victor Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0 on Centre Court.

Where will the match be played?

Williams made her debut at Wimbledon in 1997, the same year three of the players she powered through to get to this year's final were born. While she has not had the greatest of seasons so far, the 23-year-old has found her mojo at SW19, and she will definitely want to make the most of her second shot at a Wimbledon title. "It's hard to watch her because I know her so well, but she's been playing really well".

But she has rediscovered her mojo on grass and would climb into the top five if she wins Wimbledon.

Venus Williams dominated Wimbledon for nearly a decade between 2000 and 2009, winning five titles and finishing runner-up in another three finals.

- They have met once previously at a grand slam, when they faced each other in the women's doubles at the 2014 US Open, with the Williams sisters beating Muguruza and her partner, Carla Suarez Navarro.

Garbine Muguruza stormed to her first Wimbledon title and shattered Venus Williams' history bid with a majestic 7-5, 6-0 victory in Saturday's final.

Peak viewing time will be from around midnight to 3 a.m., but aurora can potentially be seen through most of the overnight hours. If the auroral forecast predicts a visible aurora, get away from light pollution in urban areas and away from any bright lights.

Ironically, if Williams does win on Saturday, she will be displacing a record already belonging to the family - to her biggest competitor, to her biggest inspiration. I'm so proud of her. "One more would be incredible", Venus said as reported by AFP.

The veteran has steadily improved as the tournament has progressed, saving her best performance for the semi-final against Johanna Konta.

Fittingly, it is Venus who lies in wait for Muguruza as the American star is the oldest Wimbledon finalist since Navratilova was beaten by Martinez 23 years ago.

Muguruza overwhelmed 87th-ranked Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia 6-1, 6-1 in the earlier semifinal. She is quick to point out that she has had the most fun over the past four years, and that has translated to great success on the court - including eight Grand Slam titles since the start of 2013.

Asked what was going through her head at the finish, Konta said: "Damn, I'm done". "I think my mind is more equipped this time because the more experience you get, the more you know how to deal with these situations because they're very special", Muguruza said Friday.

Muguruza's regular tour coach Sam Sumyk is absent from Wimbledon and from what we have seen over the past two weeks there can be no doubts about the positive influence Martinez is having. She missed one break point but grabbed the second as Williams finally caved with a floating forehand long. Federer will be facing Marin Cilic for his 19th Grand Slam in his 11th Wimbledon Finals appearance. "I don't think she needs to be discouraged at all", the 1977 champion said.
