Catch the LIVE updates here.
On day 12 of Wimbledon 2017 Centre Court will witness the Women’s Singles finals. Venus Williams takes on Garbine Muguruza. Venus Williams is attempting to become the oldest winner of the women’s singles title at Wimbledon for more than a century.
At 37 years and 28 days, Williams is looking for her first grand slam title since Wimbledon nine years ago, when she claimed her fifth crown here and seventh in total.
Muguruza is through to the final for the second time in three years and is looking to go one better after losing to Serena in 2015.
Last year the 23-year-old Spaniard turned the tables on Serena to win her maiden slam title at the French Open and was immediately hailed as the new leader of the women’s game.
Speaking ahead of the match, Williams appears confident. “I had a lot of issues. This year has been amazing in terms of my play, playing deep into the big events. Of course, I’m excited about being again in another final, trying to take it a step further.
“I feel very focused. There’s still a lot to be done. I have one more match that I’d like to be the winner of. I have to go out there and take it and play well”, she said.
Muguruza seems to be impressed with Williams’ longevity on the tennis court.
“I think my mind is more equipped this time because the more experience you get, the more you know how to deal with these situations, because they’re very special.”
“I think (Venus Williams’ longevity) is very impressive. I think not everybody can do that. I don’t think I could be 37 and playing (at) that level”, she said.
This match is hard one to call as both have been in tremendous form in the run up to the finals.
