Wimbledon: Venus Williams, Garbine Muguruza in ladies singles semis

It's the story behind the first glance that gives this match intrigue.

And despite her disappointment at failing to reach the final, Konta feels that she will come back and eventually win a Wimbledon crown before the end of her playing days.

Venus, who has only lost one set so far in the tournament, has made no secret of how she wishes she had the company of her sister, who is at home in Florida, saying, "I'm terribly missing Serena" in a post-match interview after her semi-final victory. So that magic is still happening. But she kept on going, and lately has returned to winning. Jo gave it her all.

Men may be from Mars but elite, enduring champions are definitely called Venus.

She has a plethora of off-court interests, including her own fashion label, and has been battling Sjögren's syndrome, an auto-immune illness diagnosed in 2011 which often leaves her fatigued and suffering with joint pain.

Mize, the 1987 Masters champion, had nine birdies and one bogey while shooting his lowest round of the year and the second lowest of his Seniors career. And I tried to take the same courage on the court that she would've. Meanwhile Williams, the veteran, continued adjusting a lace.

Scroll down to see live updates and highlights. The 10th-seeded American has five singles titles at Wimbledon and six doubles championships. "It's a nice club to be a part of. Two years ago it was a surprise for me because grass was something new for me". These include blazing aces, second serves traveling well over 100 mph and vicious forehand swinging volleys.

This seemed like the pivotal moment.

- Venus has played 101 matches at Wimbledon. "I was just out there competing", she said. Cilic would join countryman Goran Ivanisevic, the 2001 Wimbledon winner, as the only Croatians to win the Wimbledon title. There's no plan, I don't plan. "I just tried to climb on top each time to get another point".

Muguruza's progression marks the third straight year in which the Spaniard, victor in the 2016 French Open, has reached a major final as she continues to establish herself as one of the best in the world.

"I missed Serena so much especially before this match", Williams told reporters after winning her semi. Liu, who is from California, beat Sofya Lansere of Russia 6-1, 6-3.

Who do you think will win the match?

"And then it was, 'Oh, thank you to everyone'". This is where I want to be.' Last time a female British player won the Wimbledon title was 1977 with Virginia Wade.

It wasn't a giant opening but there was a glint of daylight.

"Right now I know how to play more on grass".

Then a dramatic game.

Williams' semifinal was more competitive, at least at the outset.

Konta simply had to break back immediately but couldn't put her chances away.

OLYMPICS: Sir Steve Redgrave claimed his fifth consecutive Olympic gold medal in the men's coxless fours. "It's working", she added.

Rival Garbine Muguruza the Wimbledon final will be determined in a few hours. You can also watch live coverage on Twitter from the Wimbledon Channel.
