History beckons once again for ageless Federer — Wimbledon

History beckons once again for ageless Federer — Wimbledon

A loud cheer from the crowd.

The signs of her hard work, her growing calmness and experience, were already showing in her results. Everyone is always trying to find the bigger meaning in Venus because there is plenty more than what she's done on the court. Melo won the 2015 French Open with Ivan Dodig. Federer previously did so at the 2007 Australian Open.

Williams was "relentless, putting pressure on Konta's serve and forehand", says Stuart Fraser of The Times.

But she is perhaps best known as the catalyst that helped the younger sister lift her game to previously unimaginable heights.

Other Spanish celebrities, from actors to footballers, also hailed the champion.

So, how can you get access to the latest full-length HD episode of Game of Thrones without accidentally downloading malware, breaking the law or waiting around for the late-night TV time slot?

So what do you do if you are in fact queen of everything like Serena Williams? "I'm so close now, so I've just got to stay focused".

So-why not?-Muguruza stepped onto Centre Court on Saturday and first brilliantly battled, then mercilessly vanquished Venus Williams, 7-5, 6-0. "Here I am. Finally!"

Almost immediately after the presentation, The All England Club's newest member dashed inside to see her name added to Wimbledon's honour roll. "She just dug in there". "She just shows this toughness", Muguruza said.

"I had I think the hardest match today against Venus", Muguruza said.

Federer will bid to become the first man to win eight Wimbledon men's singles titles, when he takes on Cilic. "I can't stop smiling!" said Liu, who won 6-2, 5-7, 6-2.

In the week before Wimbledon, the Spaniard was beaten 6-1 6-0 by Barbora Strycova in Eastbourne.

Williams had a 5-4 lead on Garbine Muguruza in the first set and looked destined to wrap it up, holding a 40-15 lead in the 10th game.

However, with the help of former champion Conchita Martinez, she plotted a route to Saturday's final, where she found Venus in her path. "So credit to her. She played amazing", said Williams. The shots she had struck so firmly during an unforgettable fortnight had gone missing. She crafted her third break point of the set when Venus netted a forehand and took her chance when the American sent a second forehand long after another lengthy exchange.

Muguruza broke serve on a second break point in the 11th game when Williams sailed a forehand long, and from that point on Muguruza was in complete charge of the match.

Williams essentially lost the match when she self-destructed at the end of the first and has only herself to blame when she analyzes her performance.

The roof over Centre Court is closed for the women's final at Wimbledon.

She lost in the second round at Wimbledon last year to world number 124 Jana Cepelova and crashed out at the same stage of the US Open to Anastasija Sevastova, ranked 48 at the time. Others scuttled quietly to the sides of the court, landing wide. How right she was!

"I grew up watching her play, so it was incredible" to play her in the Wimbledon final, Muguruza said.
