Wimbledon: Venus Williams v Garbine Muguruza final stats preview

Venus Williams celebrates after reaching the finals of Wimbledon

"The last time she played Serena so I'll have to ask Serena for some pointers", informed Venus. "I wish she was there physically, I miss her very much before the final". Williams advanced to her ninth Wimbledon final.

The American, playing at her 20th Wimbledon, is back in her first singles final at the All England Club since 2009 - when she succumbed to Serena - after gathering momentum and form as the tournament has progressed.

During these two weeks at Wimbledon, Muguruza has had 1994 Wimbledon champion Conchita Martinez in her coaching corner.

Spain's Muguruza, 23, is aiming for her first Wimbledon triumph after losing to Serena Williams in the 2015 final.

"I think she's helping me to deal with the stress of the tournament, because it's a long tournament", said Muguruza of her 45-year-old compatriot.

Venus is breaking records at this year's Wimbledon. "But, you know, to have her by my side gives me also this confidence of having someone that has won before".

Venus has already beaten some of the biggest hitters and effective servers on the women's tour in Naomi Osaka, Ana Konjuh, Jelena Ostapenko and Johanna Konta in her last four rounds.

The 23-year-old Spaniard won her maiden Grand Slam trophy at Roland Garros last year. Serena is also the oldest Wimbledon women's singles victor in Open Era history-she won Wimbledon at 34 previous year. In a tournament that had been blown wide open, not only due to Serena's absence as she awaits the birth of her first child, the absence of Maria Sharapova after her come-back from a drug suspension was hit with injury, the title was for the taking for numerous chasing pack.

She has had the tougher path to reach the final, including defeating world No 1 Angelique Kerber in three tight sets and former two-time Grand Slam champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, but is into her second Wimbledon final. Muguruza said it was all something of nothing.

Muguruza was naturally aware of that, but does not believe there is anything to be learned from how her fellow Spaniard coped that day.

The pair are first up on Centre Court, ahead of the men's doubles final and, third in line, the ladies' doubles final. If Federer, 35, wins, he'll be the oldest Wimbledon champ (though not the oldest Grand Slam champ) of the era.

What could work in Venus' favour are her improved second serve, and her forehand which has been firing on both barrels this fortnight.

"So I have more information about the situation". Muguruza can struggle to settle into tournaments due to her heavy ball striking, when it's off she plays scrappy, error-strewn tennis, when it's on she's close to unstoppable, as displayed during her 6-1/6-1 victory against Magdalena Rybarikova in Thursdays semi-final.
