Serena Backs Venus To Keep Wimbledon Title In The Family

At an age when her contemporaries have long since retired, Williams is playing some of the best tennis of her glittering career and she can cap her remarkable renaissance on Centre Court this weekend.

Venus Williams will try for a sixth Wimbledon title on Saturday against Garbiñe Muguruza in the 2017 women's final at the All England Club. "There's moments when you aren't as relaxed as other moments, but it's about handling it". "And I was like, 'No, this time you have to do it for yourself.' So here we are". Coming into this year's tournament, 12 of the last 17 Wimbledon women's singles titles have been won by one of the Williams sisters.

The 35-year-old Grand Slam champion was having none of it, taking to twitter to call out the comment.

She then applied serious pressure to the Williams serve amid a series of uncharacteristic double faults, but eventually let her opponent off the hook.

"There were definitely some issues". "I was able to come up with the goods when it mattered". Not that I'm doing something different, honestly.

Williams said she will likely not be watching Thursday as Venus Williams, 37, plays in the semi-finals against the U.K.'s Johanna Konta because she does not like to watch matches live. "But I'd like to think that Andy has inspired both girls and boys to play".

"I've played a lot of finals here, it's been a blessing", Venus said ahead of Saturday's final. I'll have to see what's working.

"This year has been unbelievable in terms of my play, playing deep into the big events".

"I just love the game and I don't want this part of my life to end". "It's two long weeks". Eleven finals here, all these records, it's great, but it doesn't give me the title quite yet.

Twenty years ago, Venus admitted she was a bundle of nerves when she made a losing Wimbledon debut against Magdalena Grzybowska and, in her ninth All England Club final, once again there was anxiety coursing through the American's error-strewn display.

"The more experience you get, the more you know how to deal with these situations, because they're very special", she said.

To do that, the 23-year-old must emulate her temporary coach Conchita Martinez's achievement of winning the Wimbledon title when the latter defeated Martina Navratilova in the 1994 final. Venus Williams will hope to reclaim her Wimbledon crown after a nine-year wait today against Garbine Muguruza, in a final that has the makings of a classic battle of the big hitters. I don't know when that happened.

"[Cilic and Federer] met in the Wimbledon quarterfinals past year, when Cilic took the opening two sets and even held a match point before Federer came all the way back to win, improving to 6-1 head-to-head". "So I look forward to putting a Spanish name back there".
