WIMBLEDON 2017: WOMEN’S SINGLES FINAL AS BOTH PLAYERS GEARED UP

The 2017 Wimbledon will see the Women’s Singles conclude tomorrow on Centre Court with both players geared up for the final.

Venus Williams is scheduled to play Garbine Muguruza in the final and could become the oldest woman to win a Grand Slam singles title in the Open Era when she beats the Spanish.

The 37 year old who is the elder sister of 23 Grand Slam title winner, Serena Williams will overtake her sister’s record of winning the Aussie Open aged 35 in January.

“I don’t think about my age,” Williams told BBC Sport. “It is not a factor.”

Venus Williams will win her sixth Wimbledon title but must battle out with 23 year old Muguruza who is taking inspiration from the 2015 Wimbledon final where she lost in the final to Venus’ younger sis, Serena Williams.

“I think my mind is more equipped this time,” said Muguruza.

Venus has also reiterated how she admires big stage saying; “I love the big stage”. “There is a lot more pressure and it is about dealing with it”.

“There are only a handful of players each year who can push and deal with the pressure of playing your best against the best players”, she added.

“I just love the game and I don’t want this part of my life to end. It is not over until it is over”, the 37 year old continued.

Muguruza who won the 2016 French Open has indicated that she has learnt a lot under the guidance of temporary coach Conchita Martinez- the only Spanish woman to have previously won Wimbledon when she beat Martina Navratilova in 1994; counting on the 2015 final to beat Venus Williams tomorrow.

She said; “The more experience you get, the more you know how to deal with these situations, because they’re very special”. “If you felt it before, it’s really helpful”.

“So I have more information about the situation”, the 23 year old said.
