It will be a battle of two players from two different ages this year in the final of Wimbledon. 23-year-old Garbine Muguruza has a second shot at winning the grass court Grand Slam after her defeat to Serena Williams in the 2015 final. She faces Serena’s resurgent 37-year-old sister Venus Williams, who is playing her first Wimbledon final since 2009 and, remarkably, her second Grand Slam final this year. Muguruza is looking for a maiden title at the All England Club while Williams is looking to win the title a sixth time, taking her one step closer to Serena’s record.
Both Williams and Muguruza made light work of their semi-final fixtures. Venus faced Johanna Konta. Despite looking to be a well-matched tie in the first set, the American quickly gained control and won the match 6-4, 6-2. Muguruza, on the other hand, had a far easier outing, beating Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1.
