Wimbledon Championships are now days away from the final outcome. The women's singles contest saw a handful of players surviving the previous rounds and now the stage is set for the semifinals. Garbine Muguruza will share the stage with #Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia in one of the two semifinals.

Venus Williams and Johanna Konta will hit the court for the second leg of the session. Reaching another #Grand Slam semifinal is just what Muguruza needed after an extended struggle which saw her stepping way outside the top 10 mostly due to that French Open title she failed to defend.

On the other side of the net will stand a 28-year-old Slovakian who recently decided to come back in full force.

A rock-solid warm-up on the grass court gave her a certain amount of stability and confidence in her game and her own strength to overcome any type of opponent.

Muguruza got past Kuznetsova in straight sets

#Garbine Muguruza is gathering momentum and it's possible we will see anther 2015-like scenario. Two years ago, a dream run brought her into the final of Wimbledon only to lose against Serena Williams. But she had her fair share of revenge one year later at the French Open defeating the same opponent in the singles' final.

Throughout this Wimbledon, Muguruza worked hard to play a consistent game and she beat Angelique Kerber in the fourth round. Next, she got past Svetlana Kuznetsova in straight sets by 6-3 6-4. Against the former world no. 1 and Grand Slam champion from Russia, Muguruza didn't drop a single game on her serve.

Instead, she broke her opponent twice, once in each set, which was enough to secure a place in the semifinals. Prior to Wimbledon, her win/ loss ratio was 23-13. She is yet to win a title in 2017 but that might change in a matter of days.

Magdalena Rybarikova entered Wimbledon with a solid background on grass

Ranked 87th in the world before Wimbledon, the 28-year-old seems unstoppable on the grass court. She is in her first Grand Slam semifinal ever. Actually, before this Wimbledon, she never got past the third round at a Grand Slam in singles. Along with Andrea Petkovic, she reached the doubles semis at the 2014 Wimbledon.

Recovering from an injury, the former world no. 31 got some momentum under her belt during the grass-court swing. She won two 100K ITF titles at Surbiton and Ilkley while at the WTA International event in Nottingham she reached the semis where she lost to Johanna Konta. It will be a tough match between Muguruza and Rybarikova as both players will try to clinch a spot in the final having nothing to lose in the process.
