Muguruza Stands Between Venus, Record as Oldest Grand Slam Winner

first_imgVenus Williams and Garbine Muguruza will meet in the Wimbledon women’s singles final at the end of an intriguing and ‘wide open’ draw. Johanna Konta’s ambitions of becoming the first British female winner at Wimbledon since Virginia Wade in 1977 were ended by Venus Williams while Muguruza dismissed Magdalena Rybarikova, the story of the tournament, in convincing fashion.Will it either be Williams, at 37, who secures her sixth Wimbledon title or Muguruza lifting the Venus Rosewater dish for the first time today? We profile both players…  Venus WilliamsVenus has enjoyed a stellar career, albeit often overshadowed by her younger sister Serena, winning seven Grand Slam titles but remarkably she is still competing at the top echelons of women’s tennis.The American, playing at her 20th Wimbledon, is back in her first singles final at the All England Club since 2009 – when she succumbed to Serena – after gathering momentum and form as the tournament has progressed.The seven-time Grand Slam champion has had to battle her way into contention at the major tournaments over recent years after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, Sjogren’s Syndrome, in 2011.The condition had a debilitating effect on her energy levels and she did not make it past the last 16 in the singles at a Grand Slam tournament between 2011 and 2014.Fast forward on a few years and Williams has reached her second Grand Slam final this year after she suffered another defeat to Serena in Melbourne at the start of the year. She had gone nearly eight years prior to the Australian Open final without reaching a showpiece major final.Venus is breaking records at this year’s Wimbledon. Having already become the oldest player to reach the semi-finals of a Grand Slam she is now a step away from becoming the oldest Grand Slam champion in the Open Era (since 1968).“I’ve played a lot of finals here, it’s been a blessing,” Venus said ahead of Saturday’s final. “I can’t ask for more, but I want a little more.”Williams is a household name not only for the tennis fraternity but across global sport and Venus has now played at the French Open and the ongoing Wimbledon without 23 Grand Slam winner Serena, who is preparing to give birth to her first child later this year.Williams, the No 10 seed, has showed her power from both wings throughout her performances at Wimbledon this year and her fitness has looked impeccable, highlighted by her comprehensive victories over rising stars Naomi Osaka and Ana Konjuh alongside recent French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko in successive rounds.Garbine MuguruzaMuguruza, who won the French Open last year, is aiming to become the first female Spanish player to win at Wimbledon since Conchita Martinez, her coach, in 1994.She has had the tougher path to reach the final, including defeating world No 1 Angelique Kerber in three tight sets and former two-time Grand Slam champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, but is into her second Wimbledon final.The 23-year-old, who is into her third Grand Slam final, is once again facing a Williams. However, this time it will not be Serena but Venus and on current form, she has the artillery to become a Grand Slam champion for a second time.Her victory against Kerber, who will lose her world No 1 spot at the end of the tournament, showed her mental resilience having lost the first set, while her victory against the unseeded Magdalena Rybarikova in the semi-finals was a demonstration of her consistent power hitting from the baseline.Muguruza’s regular tour coach Sam Sumyk is absent from Wimbledon and from what we have seen over the past two weeks there can be no doubts about the positive influence Martinez is having.The 2015 Wimbledon finalist has always appeared to have a game well-suited to grass. Her tall frame enables her to get a good early strike on her opponents with her first delivery and she has backed this up with assured groundstrokes and a willingness to approach the net when the opportunity presents itself.“I think she’s helping me to deal with the stress of the tournament, because it’s a long tournament,” said Muguruza about the influence of Martinez.“Not that I’m doing something different, honestly. But, you know, to have her by my side gives me also this confidence of having someone that has won before.”If Muguruza is able to replicate her 22 winners from the semi-final and keep her unforced errors down then she will be well placed to overcome Venus in her third career major final.Venus Williams  Name  Garbine Muguruza37 Age 23June 17, 1980 Birthdate October 08, 1993Palm Beach Gardens, FloridaResidenceBarcelona, Spain6′ 1″ (185 cm) Height 6′ 0″ (182 cm)160 lb (73 kg) Weight 161 lb (73 kg)Right-handed Plays Right-handed1994 Turned Pro 201124 Yrs on Tour 720 singles (0 doubles) YTD Wins 14 singles (0 doubles)$1,823,733 Earnings $2,999,388center_img Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Photos: Nyantakyi unites with Countryman Songo at KABA’s memorial

first_imgTwo rivals in the sports fraternity were united at the one-week celebration of ace broadcaster, Kwadwo Asare Baffuor Acheampong also known as KABA. President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi and his avowed critic, Patrick Osei Agyemang commonly known as Countryman Songo embraced and danced to demonstrate their unity to the excitement of the crowd at the one-week celebration of the late presenter.This comes after President of the GFA launched a $2m libel suit against Multimedia Group Limited (MGL) for allegedly being described on its platforms as the ‘head of a mafia’. Nyantakyi, who is also Vice President of Confederation of African Football (CAF), sued two of its journalists, Patrick Osei Agyeman and Kofi Asare Brako also known as Abatay (who now works with Atinka FM) for consistently defaming him for years on the Multimedia Group owned radio station Asempa FM.Nyantakyi claimed Asempa FM – a local-language FM station owned by MGL – tarnished his image in a series of broadcasts involving both journalists.But the neutrality and professionalism of KABA though no more was able to unite these two who had vowed never to see eye-to-eye. Mr Nyantakyi after expressing his condolence to the late KABA’s family and the Multimedia Group also donated ¢2000 and 20 boxes of bottled water to support the funeral of the late Asempa FM presenter.The families of KABA and those of Valentina are here with a unity of purpose – to give a befitting one week to the departed soul of the once bubbly broadcaster.last_img read more
