Muguruza can prove herself a true champion if she defeats Venus Williams

Muguruza will face the elder Williams sister, in pursuit of her sixth Wimbledon title.

Muguruza, who lost in the final at the All England Club in 2015, saved two set points in the 10th game of the first set, and then won nine straight games to win.

With persistent drizzle blanketing the All England Club, Williams and Muguruza were competing in the first Wimbledon final to begin under the roof, watched by a sell-out crowd including Hollywood actress Hilary Swank.

Since winning her maiden Grand Slam title at the French Open past year, Muguruza had endured something of a sophomore slump as she dropped out of the top 10 in the world rankings.

"Serena's always in my corner and usually it's her in these finals and I'm trying my best to represent Williams family as best I can", Venus told the "BBC". She won in women's doubles at this tournament a year ago, playing alongside Serena, who's in the final trimester of her pregnancy. Navratilova was playing in her 12 Wimbledon final while Martinez was playing in her first. That final that I did helped me a lot to figure it out a way to play better in grass because before I was, like, not very experienced.

The men's doubles final will be on Centre Court after Muguruza or Williams earns the title.

"It's wonderful", Hingis told reporters at Wimbledon, where she is into the semi-finals of the mixed doubles.

Longevity, battling odds, strength of character, sheer bloody-mindedness - all hallmarks of a champion, which the elder of the Williams sisters has been, despite having 16 lesser Slam titles than the little one.

Williams had been striving to become the oldest women's champion on London's hallowed grass courts in 109 years after qualifying for her ninth final - eight years after her eighth. If she wins she'll join a list of active multiple major winners that includes Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova, Svetlana Kuuznetsova, Angelique Kerber and Victoria Azarenka. She was 35 when she won this year's Australian Open.

"Things got complicated and I got lucky to win previous year".

She has won five of her six matches without dropping a set, the only blot coming when she had to come from a set down to defeat Wang Qiang in the second round.

'Dear John, I adore and respect you but please please keep me out of your statements that are not factually based, ' she posted. Williams was unable to take advantage of early chances against Spain's Muguruza - who only grew more accurate and confident as the match progressed.

"It's more nerve-wracking watching her because when I'm playing, it's all in my hands".

"She's still motivated to go for more" said Muguruza, 26, "which is also very surprising".

"So I definitely want to be the one who takes the big one. try to change things after the last two years".
