Venus Williams vs Garbine Muguruza Women's Singles Finals 2017 — Wimbledon

Saturday's match will be broadcast by ESPN in the United States, beginning at 9 a.m. ET. From there, she won her next eight sets, including a last set that will stand among the most dominant of the decade in Wimbledon.

Both players set up three break points during the hard-fought opener, but only Muguruza was able to convert, scoring a crucial break with the scoreline at 5-5 and going on to serve out the set.

But this was a step too far.

"Quite honestly, I think I was in just as much of a shot of winning this tournament here".

"I'm happy to be in this situation". She is one point away from the winning the set. It means a lot.

The No. 15 player in the world defeated Angelique Kerber in the Round of 16, who handed Muguruza a loss in the first set. She also won the French Open in 2016. Prior to that, the two faced off in 2002 and 2003 for the Wimbledon championship and Venus lost to her sister both times.

It will be the first time since 1975, when women joined the men in having a rankings system, that a British man and woman have sat in the top five concurrently.

The Spanish star was aggressive throughout and dominated the encounter as Williams faded in the second set.

According to preliminary data, became a two-time winner of the tournament series Grand slam. She lost the first, in Australia, to her sister Serena. "Like I said before, I always look at the wall and see all the names and all the history".

"No, definitely not. I was talking with him every day".

Fittingly, Martínez has helped coach the 23-year-old in the absence of her regular coach, Sam Sumyk. I really know the difference of making a final. I'm like, I was close. She leads the second set 4-0.

But, in a turning point, Muguruza saved the first after the longest rally of the match and the second with an unreturnable serve.

Ironically, Saturday's final represented the largest age gap between two finalists since 1994, when 22-year-old Conchita Martinez shocked 37-year-old Martina Navratilova for the Wimbledon title.

The headline ahead of this year's women's singles at Wimbledon was that without the pregnant Serena Williams, the draw was wide open. "It is not a factor".

"Thanks to my team who have been here day in and day out".
