Garbine Muguruza vs. Venus Williams - player profiles

She said: "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".

Williams plays Garbine Muguruza on Saturday and, unlike Charlotte Sterry, who lifted the trophy in 1908 aged 37 years and 282 days, she will nearly certainly not travel to the All England Club by bicycle.

"For me it's incredible".

Just weeks ago tennis legend John McEnroe said that despite being the "best female player ever - no question", Serena would be ranked at number 700 if she played in the men's circuit. "For the last years, you see a lot of Williams surname", she said.

There have been times since her last Wimbledon triumph in 2008 against Serena when it seemed the older of the two Williams sisters would hang up her racket.

Martinez became the only Spanish woman to win Wimbledon in 1994 and her soothing words of wisdom have guided Muguruza to her third Grand Slam final. Not that I'm doing something different, honestly. There's still a lot to be done.

"I miss her so much".

Once she is free from Trump's grip, Brigitte reaches out to Melania , who had been observing the spectacle from a safe distance. At one point, Trump offered a hug to the French first lady , who was sucked into the handshake herself immediately after.

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. "I like to take courage in the fact that I've been playing well this tournament".

- Muguruza could become just the second Spanish player to win multiple women's singles grand slams (Arantxa Sanchez Vicario - 4). But Muguruza, like Williams, has dropped only one set to reach the final and on Thursday produced a superb display of controlled aggression to thrash Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1 6-1.

"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".

Yet, in the twilight of her career, Venus has hit a rich vein of form over the last 12 months.

"I'm definitely in the position I want to be in".

The playing style of both players are quite similar - big serves and booming forehand but the key would be who handles the nerves better.

Muguruza, the expected finalThe two favorites of the day easily won in the semi-finals at Wimbledon.
