Highlights of Wimbledon day 10: Venus sets up final showdown with Muguruza
Five-time champion Venus Williams produced a clinical performance to claim a 6-4 6-2 semi-final victory over home favourite Johanna Konta at Wimbledon on Thursday. Venus, 37, broke in the 10th game to clinch the first set and then dominated her sixth-seeded opponent, breaking twice more to wrap up the match on Centre Court. The American reached her first Wimbledon final since 2009 and will face 14th seed Spaniard Garbine Muguruza. Muguruza, who finished runner-up to Serena Williams in 2015, hit top form to beat Slovakian Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1 6-1. Rybarikova, who was coming into the match with an 18-1 record on grass this season, started nervously and lost the first five games in 25 minutes. The world No 87 struggled to match Muguruza's powerful hitting from the baseline and was defeated after 64 minutes of play. VENUS THROUGH TO FINAL - Venus broke Konta's serve twice in the second set. - Venus, 37, became the oldest grand slam women's finalist since Martina Navratilova at 1994 Wimbledon. MUGURUZA STORMS INTO FINAL - Muguruza booked her place in the final with a victory over Rybarikova on Centre Court. - Muguruza, a 2015 runner-up, hit 22 winners and won 19 of her 25 points at the net to seal the win in just over an hour.
