Venus Williams defies all odds.

Williams then turned the screw on her sixth-seeded opponent, breaking twice more to wrap up the match in an hour and 13 minutes. However, she will be inspired by the fact that she is the first woman from her country ever to reach the last four at Wimbledon.

Venus Williams turned back the clock last night, producing a stunning display to trounce Britain's hope and bookies favourite, Johanna Konta, 6-4, 6-2 and reach the Wimbledon final.

After that French Open title, she had struggled to sustain that form in Grand Slams, exiting in the second round of Wimbledon in 2016, the second round of the U.S. Open, the quarterfinals of the Australian Open and the fourth round of the French Open. "There was a lot of pressure on her. My experienced helped". I tried to climb on top each time to win another point and wow it was done. Muguruza, who was born in Venezuela and raised in Spain, cruised in her semifinal, 6-1, 6-1 over Magdalena Rybarikova.

And Venus intends to pick the brains of her young sister, absent from this year's Wimbledon due to being pregnant. "It was truly magnificent, the support I had". She closed the match 6-2.

She said: "I thought Jo played really well". I played every week. And everything has gone well. Meanwhile, the 28-year-old Slovakian comes into the match as the eighth‐lowest‐ranked Grand Slam semi-finalist in history. On the other hand, Slovakia's Rybarikova outplayed Coco Vandeweghe 6-3, 6-3 to advance to the semis. "It was all credit to her".

"I wasn't expecting anything because you never know how it's going to go", Muguruza said after the match.

"Yeah, there's definitely a lot of ups and downs", Williams said.

The 15th head of the series has already won a major title, the International tennis de France.

The women's final will begin at 9 a.m. ET Saturday and will be broadcast on ESPN in the United States.
