Despite being on the WTA professional tour over the past two decades, Venus Williams never ceases to amaze. At 37 years of age, she will play another Grand Slam final, the second one of the season for her after losing to her sister in the Australian Open' s final act. Calibrating her game perfectly, she reached the final at Wimbledon for the ninth time in her career. Last year she was stopped by Angelique Kerber in the semifinals of the tournament. Earlier today, she taught Johanna Konta a lesson of how tennis should be played on grass. On Saturday, she will face Garbine Muguruza for the women's singles title.

Venus dominated Konta for the whole game

Before today's match, Johanna Konta was leading Venus by 3-2 in head to head stats. Now, things will sit in a perfect balance as the American filled the gap. Their sixth meeting on a WTA level event had a special feeling as it was their first grass-court encounter. A five-time champion in the past, Williams knew exactly what to do and when to press certain buttons.

The opening set had both players keeping intact their service game. At 4-4 Venus had to save two consecutive break points. Escaping from that tight game, she immediately pressed harder on Konta's serve. The struggle paid off as the British player sunk losing her serve and the opening set. The second act saw a dominant American cruising on her own serve and applying pressure on the opponent.

The first break came in the fourth game giving Venus a 3-1 lead with the serve. A strong performance from the baseline gave Konta nothing to work with. At 5-2, the British player served to stay in the match. Despite saving two match points, eventually, she ran out of fuel and inspiration.

Despite losing the chance to feature in her first Grand Slam final, Konta can find some comfort in the fact that she will enter the top 5 for the first time when the updated rankings will be released next Monday.

Venus seeks her 6th Wimbledon and the 8th Grand Slam overall

The women's singles final has picked its actors. It'll be Venus Williams vs Garbine Muguruza, the 10th seed vs the 14th seed. In head to head stats, Venus leads Muguruza by 3-1. The novelty is that the upcoming match will be their first grass court match-up.

While Venus will try to rather consolidate her legacy by winning the singles contest for the sixth time, on the other side, the Spanish star aims to surpass her best result at this tournament (2015 runner-up). There are different reasons on each side, but the goal remains the same.
