Wimbledon Women's Final Betting Preview and Odds: Muguruza vs. Williams

Wimbledon Women's Final Betting Preview and Odds: Muguruza vs. Williams

Venus Williams became the oldest woman in 23 years to reach a Wimbledon final as she defied her age and a despondent home crowd to inflict a crushing defeat on British hope Johanna Konta on Thursday. "We work so many years for these moments that she has right now, and I'm really happy for her", the 23-time grand slam victor told Yahoo Sports.

But she has rediscovered her mojo on grass and would climb into the top five if she wins Wimbledon.

"It should be the biggest story ever if Venus wins this", said Lindsay Davenport, who won Wimbledon in 1999 and is now a Tennis Channel analyst.

But that doesn't stop her being amazed by her opponent's thirst for more success, having already won seven Grand Slam titles.

That earned the 23-year-old Muguruza a berth in her third career Grand Slam final, second at the All England Club.

This was her 10th semifinal in 20 Wimbledon appearances; Konta had never been past the second round at the grass-court tournament before this year. "She knows how to prepare, how to train, what to do". "It's not a long time ago", Muguruza observed.

"She's been through her illness, and she keeps fighting through it, and it would just mean so much, not just for her but for people who suffer what she suffers just to realise that this isn't, this doesn't have to be it", Serena said.

Kamal Haasan: Nothing wrong in mentioning actress` name
When pointed out that the name of the victim shouldn't be named he had argued that there is nothing wrong in that. However since I was asked about it ny a lady reporter I politely replied, and I mentioned the victim's name.

However, in recent years Williams has defied the odds to return to the elite of women's tennis, reaching the final of the Australian Open earlier this year where she lost to Serena.

'I think it's very impressive, ' she said ahead of the final.

However, Muguruza has produced some of the best tennis of her career in SW19 this fortnight, knocking out world No1 Angelique Kerber and dismantling No7 seed Svetlana Kuznetsova easily in the quarter-finals. "The last time she played Serena so I'll have to ask Serena for some pointers", informed Venus.

It will also be her first since winning the French Open past year but she has been here before, losing to Serena Williams in the 2015 Wimbledon final.

- Muguruza could become just the second Spanish player to win multiple women's singles grand slams (Arantxa Sanchez Vicario - 4).

Venus Williams has been the beneficiary of quite a poor draw, and to her credit she's taken full advantage.

The Spaniard won their most recent encounter this year, but it was on the clay courts of Rome. She attempted to regain her composure before telling the moderator, "Maybe I should go", and then left the room. "But, you know, to have her by my side gives me also this confidence of having someone that has won before". "And usually it's her in these finals, so I'm trying my best to represent "Williams" as best as I can".
