Venus ends Konta's run, makes first final in 8 years — Wimbledon

The American 10th seed played superbly to win 6-4 6-2 on Centre Court and set up a final - her first in the tournament's singles competition since 2009 - against Spain's Garbine Muguruza.

"I feel much more calm, am kind of controlling my emotions more than the last time", said Muguruza, who won the 2016 French Open, saying that she was drawing on the experience of Martinez.

Serena Williams is pregnant and taking time off from the tour. "She said: "[I eat] a lot of wheat grass shots, lots of fresh juices and things like that. Who will win the All England Club titles this weekend?

"I love the challenge".

"Being in a Grand Slam final is a great achievement". Try to take it a step further.

"I would have liked to have made it a full two weeks, but it's okay".

On playing American legend Williams, Muguruza added: 'She knows how to play, especially Wimbledon finals.

A sympathetic round of applause greeted her first game at 5-1 down.

"So happy to see a Williams in the finals of #Wimbledon - congrats, sis", he wrote on Twitter. Obviously it's very short after the match, and I'm a little bit disappointed. She saved a match point but a double fault gave the advantage to Williams, who sealed the match with a forehand winner.

And then there were only two. I want to keep improving'. "Maybe the score did look maybe easier than actually playing during the games". "It's been a blessing", Williams said. It's a grand slam.

Muguruza earlier swept past unseeded Slovak Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1 6-1 in 65 minutes in one of the most one-sided semi-finals in Wimbledon history. The pattern continued throughout the quick rout.

Baseball is now heading into the second half of the season. "You tell me I'm going to lose 6-1, 6-1..." It beats debilitating illness, numbs injury and blunts pressure. "The racket has to talk". Winning the title would vault her into the top five.

Sydney-born Konta had been hoping to become the first British women's finalist since Virginia Wade in 1970. "But it's like, no, this time you have to do it for yourself, so here we are".
