Roger Federer in action during his fourth round match against Grigor Dimitrov at Wimbledon

Her success at Ilkley - which came thanks to a final win over Belgium's Alison van Uytvanck - was part of a confidence-building run going into Wimbledon.

Should she win the title on Saturday, Venus would overtake her sister as the oldest female Grand Slam singles champion in the open era.

She defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova on the her way to the last-four stage of the tournament.

In the day's first semifinal, the 14 seed Muguruza took on the surprise of the tournament in Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova, and played a nearly-flawless match, rolling to a 6-1, 6-1 victory to reach the Wimbledon final for the second time in her career.

AEGON Ilkley Trophy women's champion Magdalena Rybarikova is aiming to upset the odds by reaching the Wimbledon final.

"I've played some good tennis in different points of my life", Williams said in somewhat of an understatement.

But the 87th-ranked Slovak - who has described her Wimbledon adventure as a "fairy tale" - said she was still happy with her overall tournament performance. "It's not a given, but I'm going to give it my all". "I don't know that I play exactly the same way she does, but I really tried to be inspired by it".

Having weathered that, she followed with a break for the 6-4 first set, as the decided aggressor in a game she won at 15.

Williams, however, saved both, the second with an 106-mile-per-hour second serve, and then made Konta pay by breaking herself in the next game to clinch the set.

When asked if he thought Akhmetshin was connected to the Russian security services, Rohrabacher said: "I would certainly not rule that out".

Konta, who courageously produced gripping three-set wins over Donna Vekic, Caroline Garcia and Simona Halep, just couldn't mount a comeback, though she left the court to a standing ovation, rightfully so. I try to take the same courage on the court that she would have.

Venus Williams has cruised into her ninth Wimbledon final.

"I did think of that".

Muguruza won the point on 19 of 25 trips to the net and had a 22-8 edge in winners.

"I'll have to ask Serena for some pointers", Venus Williams said.

Federer now avoids the looming semi-final battle against Djokovic., who has beaten him the last two times they had clashed at the Championships.

"After her injury and knee surgery she can see that she is better hiding the court now, she is more confident and generally looks good at her play She was handicapped before the operation, it started out well".

The women's singles final at Wimbledon was established on Thursday morning as American Venus Williams and Spain's Garbine Muguruza won their respective semifinal matches in straight sets. In their final match that year, Muguruza was again victorious, winning at the Indian Wells Masters 6-4 6-0.
