Wimbledon | Federer first man to reach 11 finals at same Slam

Wimbledon | Federer first man to reach 11 finals at same Slam

She won in women's doubles at this tournament previous year, playing with her sister, Serena, who's in the final trimester of her pregnancy.

Williams, the No 10 seed, has showed her power from both wings throughout her performances at Wimbledon this year and her fitness has looked impeccable, highlighted by her comprehensive victories over rising stars Naomi Osaka and Ana Konjuh alongside recent French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in successive rounds.

So the 37-year-old, this time is carrying the hopes of the Williams clan while her younger sibling takes time out to have a baby.

It will also be her first since winning the French Open past year but she has been here before, losing to Serena Williams in the 2015 Wimbledon final.

Williams also stopped Konta's bid to become the first woman from Britain in 40 years to win the country's Grand Slam tournament.

Spain's Garbine Muguruza (L) and United States player Venus Williams pose with their trophies after Muguruza won the women's singles final on the twelfth day of the 2017 Wimbledon Championships at The All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon, southwest London, on July 15, 2017.

A less strong-willed personality would have gone into hiding but, Venus, after choking back tears when asked about the incident at the start of Wimbledon, has taken solace in her tennis. Even though she said here that she's not sure how she found her way to that 2015 final, she already claimed the 2016 French Open final, 7-5, 6-4, over Serena Williams.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was also delighted to see his new man get off the mark while also commending the team's general performance.

All these years later, Wimbledon still brings out the best in Venus Williams. "So I just have more information about the situation".

"For me it's incredible to be here in another final, because it means a lot", the No.14 seed said. "But I just liked how big he played". "But I know I have to be the cheerleader for myself", she added.

Muguruza had spoken eloquently this week of etching her name onto the Wimbledon honours board alongside Venus, Serena and the other All England Club icons. Muguruza has a 71 percent success rate after going to the net a total of 129 times (on the baseline it is 51 percent), and the tactic could be important in forcing Williams onto the back foot.

"I think she's helping me to deal with the stress of the tournament, because it's a long tournament", said Muguruza of her 45-year-old compatriot. Navratilova was playing in her 12 Wimbledon final while Martinez was playing in her first.

"I just try to hold my head up high, no matter what is happening in life". If he wins Wimbledon on Sunday, he will, in what surely was supposed to be the twilight of the greatest career in the history of men's tennis, clearly establish himself as the best player in the world once again.

"I'm usually more of a night person but with my pregnancy I wake up in the morning a lot earlier and I go to bed really early, like 9 or 10 p.m., which is really insane for me", she said. "It's hard to watch her because I know her so well, but she's been playing really well".

Konta was only the third female player from these shores to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon since Jo Durie in 1985 and the first to make the last four since Virginia Wade in 1978.
