Venus Williams makes Wimbledon final: Twitter reacts


Five-time victor Venus Williams ended Johanna Konta's hopes of becoming the first British woman to reach the Wimbledon final for 40 years.

The American will play Spaniard Garbine Muguruza who advanced to the final as she easily beat beat Slovakian Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1 6-1.

Serving at 4-4 in the first set, Williams faced the first break of the match.

Muguruza was beaten by Serena Williams in her first grand slam final at the All England Club two years ago, but will get another chance to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish on Saturday.

While she was second best on the day, Konta is full of belief that her time will come in the future and she believes she will reach Grand Slam finals and perhaps even win titles.

Moving in for the kill, Williams fired a body serve straight through Konta in charging ahead 4-1 before putting Konta away on her second match point with a cool forehand pass. The 23-year-old Muguruza broke twice to open the second set, claiming the first four games before dismissing Rybarikova in a mere 64 minutes.

Mr Sherring acknowledged that he was "nervous" ahead of today's semi-final but "really excited" to watch his former player from the Centre Court stands.

Konta, 26, is the first Briton since Virginia Wade in 1978 to make the women's semi-finals. I'm just so happy. I hope I keep it up for the last match and I hope it goes my way. "It's not a given, but I'm going to give it my all". She has the crowd, as well. "I wanted to play better, and I could not", she said.

'I don't think I did too much wrong out there.

Her record at the All England Club - with only one win in five appearances before this year - has now improved dramatically.

"I think she's helping me to deal with the stress of the tournament, because it's a long tournament", Muguruza said. The American was playing in her tenth Wimbledon semifinal.

Konta, who moved from Sydney to Europe when she was 13, credits much of her new-found mental toughness to her former mind coach Juan Coto, who took his own life previous year but whose spirit remains very much with the Brit. "I feel like she wants these majors, she'll have an opportunity".
