It was Conchita Martinez who defeated Martina Navratilova in the 1994 final and now for Venus it is Muguruza standing between her sixth title. "The last time she played Serena so I'll have to ask Serena for some pointers", informed Venus.

"I'm different, but not very different". All were born in the year that Williams made her first main draw appearance at Wimbledon.

"She knows how to play, especially Wimbledon finals", Muguruza, the 2015 Wimbledon runner-up and 2016 French Open champion, said about Williams. Venus, meanwhile, will be playing in her 16th career Slam final.

In a tournament that had been blown wide open, not only due to Serena's absence as she awaits the birth of her first child, the absence of Maria Sharapova after her come-back from a drug suspension was hit with injury, the title was for the taking for numerous chasing pack. Muguruza lost only set too, against the German Angelique Kerber in the fourth round. "It's not a long time ago", Muguruza observed.

Should she prevail on Saturday, she would surpass Serena as the oldest Wimbledon women's singles champion in the professional era and the oldest since Charlotte Sterry in 1908.

What could work in Venus' favour are her improved second serve, and her forehand which has been firing on both barrels this fortnight.

Williams has taken three of her previous four meetings against Muguruza, but the Spaniard won their last meeting, contested on the Clay in Rome this spring. I have one more match that I'd like to, you know, be the victor of. She's second on the list of most grass titles won among active players.
