Venus in retrograde: Looking back at an iconic Wimbledon career
Garbine Muguruza knocked out top seed Angelique Kerber in the last round
16 Julio, 2017, 01:13
Muguruza will face Williams in Saturday's final, with the Spaniard seeking her second major title having won the French Open in 2016 - a year after losing to Venus' younger sister Serena in the 2015 All England Club showpiece.
A semifinal against No.2 seed Maria Sharapova reversed the arc of the quarterfinal: Venus eked out a tight first set on a tiebreak before running away with the match 7-6 (2), 6-1, setting the stage for a repeat of that 2000 final against No.1 seed Lindsay Davenport.
Another early break in the second piled the pressure on Kuznetsova, the 32-year-old Russian with two grand slam titles to her name who was appearing in the quarter-finals for the first time in 10 years, and she was rarely able to threaten. After Williams held serve to take a 5-4 lead, she was able to break Konta-the home favorite- in the following game to take the opening set and silence the crowd at the All England Club.
Venus Williams didn't expect to reach Wimbledon final after that just two weeks ago she was at fault for causing a mortal incident in Florida near Palm Beach. 'There were definitely some issues. Nobody, man or woman, has appeared in more grand slam tournaments than Venus, who is in her 75th.
"It's her physio, she was talking to her all the time, we all speak Spanish", she said.
In the time since, Williams revealed that she was diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome, which can sap energy and cause joint pain. Her performances in beating the likes of world No. 1 Angelique Kerber, Svetlana Kuznetsova and most recently Rybarikova were staggeringly good.

Obviously a few months back, things were pretty hard but obviously life's a little bit easier right now and I'm enjoying my golf". Events since the Players rather endorse the attitude that continues to serve Poulter so well.
One more win will be amazing. That is her prerogative, of course, and the financial penalty will not bother her but it is odd that she does not engage more. This is where I want to be.' Last time a female British player won the Wimbledon title was 1977 with Virginia Wade.
Muguruza said: "I'm here because I've done the hard work before". That loss of points in the 12-month rankings rotation had sent her to No. 15, just as this showing figures to restore her upward.
She was strangely reluctant, however, to give much credit to her esteemed coach, Conchita Martínez, who, as it happens, was the last Spanish player to go up against an American in a final here, when she beat Martina Navratilova in 1994. It was a risky strategy, going for so much pace on a second serve, but it worked. "And usually it's her in these finals, so I'm trying my best to represent 'Williams' as best as I can". No. I think she's helping me how to deal with the tournament, because obviously it's a grand slam, and it's difficult to handle because it's two weeks. She has the ability and mindset to win majors, but her high-risk, explosive brand of tennis has a tendency to come unstuck on tour. "It's working", she added.
