Breaking News: Venus Williams advances to her first Wimbledon championships final since 2009

Venus Williams advances to her first Wimbledon championships final since 2009

Venus Williams advances to her first Wimbledon championships final since 2009, Williams defeat British's Johanna Konta 6-4, 6-2, Williams faces Garbine Maguruza in Saturday's final.


Williams beat Johanna Konta 6-4, 6-2 on Centre Court to end the Brit’s best ever run at SW19.
She will now face Muguruza, who dispatched Magdalena Rybarikova in just 64 minutes in the first semi-final to book a place in her second final here.
Last time, she faced Serena but lost in straight sets and Venus, playing in the final for the ninth time, admitted she would be in touch with her sister for tactical advice.
“We both play really well on grass,” Venus said. “Serena is always in my corner. I’m going to have to ask her for some pointers.






“Usually it’s her in these finals so I’m trying to represent the Williamses.”
Serena is missing Wimbledon, where she has won the last two titles and seven in total, as she prepares to become a mother for the first time.
And Venus, who has faced her sister four times in the Wimbledon final, revealed she is suffering the effects of her absence.
"I just wish she was here,” Venus added. "I wish she could do it for me but now I have to. I missed her terribly. I missed her.

"I've played a lot of finals here. I couldn't have asked for more [this year].
“Well, one more win will be amazing. It's not a given but I'll give it my all. I thought the crowd were very nice to me.
“I know they love Jo, she gave it her all. There's a lot of pressure but she handled it well. I felt my experience helped a lot.
"She played so well. At no point was it easy.
“I tried to climb on top each time to win another point and wow it was done. I'm so happy.”
