Venus Williams will take on Garbin Muguruza in the Wimbledon Finals 2017 on Saturday, start time at 9:00 AM ET, at Centre Court.

The final of the women's tournament arrives today, with two people outside of the single figure seeds up for the Venus Rosewater Dish.

The American star, who stormed into the Wimbledon finals for the ninth time, is also bidding to clinch her first Grand Slam title in nine years, after she last lifted the coveted trophy in 2008.

She has won five of her six matches without dropping a set, the only blot coming when she had to come from a set down to defeat Wang Qiang in the second round.

The 36-year-old Hingis is just three months younger than Williams but unlike the American, she now only plays doubles and mixed doubles, having last played singles on the Tour in 2007.


Williams is aiming for his sixth title at the All England Club while Muguruza her first.

Muguruza's progression marks the third straight year in which the Spaniard, victor in the 2016 French Open, has reached a major final as she continues to establish herself as one of the best in the world. That will surely have Venus on high alert, and rightly so, given Serena did lose to Muguruza in the final at Roland Garros a year ago.

Hingis, who won five Grand Slam singles titles, is happy to concentrate now on doubles.

Wimbledon is on BBC One at 13.00.

Last meeting: Muguruza won 6-2, 3-6, 6-2, quarter-finals, 2017 Rome Masters.
