In the women's singles final of 2017 Wimbledon, fans will witness a battle between youth and experience as veteran Venus Williams looks to script history when she takes on Garbine Muguruza on Saturday.
Before the start of the tournament, not many had expected Venus to reach so far but Serena Williams' resurgent sibling breezed past two of the favourites to reach her first Wimbledon final since 2009.
The 37-year-old defeated tennis newbie and French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in the quarters and bruised past Johanna Konta to inch closer to Serena's record. A win on Saturday would mean seven Wimbledon titles for the older sister, equalling that of Serena's. Not only so, she would also become the oldest women to clinch the title.
Meanwhile, 23-year-old Garbine Muguruza shot to fame after her defeat to Serena in the 2015 final at the All England Court. She floored World No 1 Angelique Kerber and then edged past Slovakian first-timer Magdalena Rybarikova to enter her second Wimbledon final.
Inspired by the decision to hire compatriot Conchita Martinez as her temporary coach for Wimbledon, Muguruza has enjoyed a revival of her own over the last fortnight.
Since winning her maiden Grand Slam title at the French Open last year, Muguruza had endured something of a sophomore slump as her ranking dropped out of the top 10.
Martinez became the only Spanish woman to win Wimbledon in 1994 and her soothing words of wisdom have guided Muguruza to her third Grand Slam final.
