Five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams defeated Britain's Johanna Konta 6-4, 6-2 on Thursday to gain her ninth final at the All England Club.

The 26-year-old Konta had hoped to become the first British woman in a Wimbledon singles final since 1977, but she ended up being no match for Venus.

"Serena did play her in a final", Venus said.

"I definitely feel like there's no reason why I would not be able to be in a position to win a title like this one day", Konta said.

'I think she just loves to play and she enjoys going out there, ' she added. If Muguruza wins the Wimbledon, she will be the first Spanish Woman to win the title in 23 years.

Muguruza first came into prominence by reaching the fourth round of the 2014 Australian Open, where she scored an upset over Caroline Wozniacki en route.

'I'm very happy with how I was physically and mentally able to hold up in this grass-court season. Now she stands on the precipice of winning her sixth Wimbledon title, her eight Grand Slam and her first since 2008. This is Muguruza's second time in the final - she lost to Serena Williams in 2015.

'It felt like, "Oh, I'm in the final of a tournament that I didn't expect".

As happened often during the match, Konta lost the first point on serve but was helped by an ace and a forehand victor to reach 40-30. It was more new for me also. I don't think I could be 37 and playing that level'.

Rybarikova said: "Last year it was very hard for me". "I saw her play before".

The Spaniard was 3-0 up after just 10 minutes, her aggressive approach paying dividends against an opponent who looked nervous in what was the biggest game of her career. "The last time she played Serena so I'll have to ask Serena for some pointers", informed Venus.

".All my energy is towards making her want to be great and making her want to win". "It was 6-1, 6-1, but still I made an incredible run here to the semifinals".

- In contrast, Muguruza has won just three WTA singles titles, including her French Open victory previous year.
