Williams beats Sharapova in 2 sets to reach Wimbledon final

“I knew it was going to be tough”, she said afterwards.


Fair enough. The done-with-that response was understandable because every encounter with the press at Wimbledon contains two types of questions.

One thing is for sure for this match, though: It will be fun to watch.

She will be seeking a 21st Major title as well as achieving the rare feat of holding all four Grand Slam titles simultaneously. All their previous meetings happened at grand slam events.

“I dont want the pressure of that, and Im not thinking of that.

“I think I could do okay on the mental side but somebody like Serena would just wipe me off the court”, Evert told United States of America Today. So maybe it’s fitting that he’s in Serena Williams’ corner at Wimbledon.

Whatever functions. Clearly, Williams is performing plenty proper at the moment. She pushed the world No 1 to deuce only once. She had 39 winners, along with 29 errors.

“Nothing to do with Sharapova“, said Williams’ coach, Patrick Mouratoglou.

She will have to try again next year – but what does she have to do to beat a woman who is on the verge of hoisting the Rosewater Dish for a sixth time?

Williams beat her sister Venus in the fourth round and another past No. 1 and multiple major victor, Victoria Azarenka, in the quarter-finals.

The Wimbledon starts to wrap up as Serena Williams continued to dominate the grass and her rival, with another win against Maria Sharapova, 6-2, 6-4 win last Thursday in their semifinals bout.

Double faults are a familiar flaw for Sharapova, but three in the opening game handed an early break and the initiative to her opponent.

“The feeling gets better”. I think she knows against certain players she needs to bring out her best.

But Muguruza, who is a strapping 6ft, believes she has the power to match five-times Wimbledon champ Williams. “Wasn’t really good decision”.

This was a case of chances taken for the 21-year-old, converting three of four break points. While Williams fought back, Watson served for the match at 5-4 and was two points away. When it ended, Muguruza dropped her racket and fell onto the court on her stomach.

Speaking ahead of her final clash with Muguruza, the top seed said that Muguruza had her figured out because she had already lost to her.

The winner of 38 out of 39 outings in 2015, Williams has more tennis history at her mercy against Muguruza, a 6-2 3-6 6-3 semi-final victor over Polish 13th seed Agnieszka Radwanska.


With Garbine Muguruza through to the Wimbledon final, it’s time to find out who she will play in Saturday’s championship match.
