Venus Williams Through To Wimbledon Final

Venus Williams says she remains focused on adding a sixth Wimbledon title after booking her spot in Saturday’s final against Garbine Muguruza. The seven-time Grand Slam champion last won a major title at Wimbledon in 2008 when she defeated her sister Serena.

The 37-year-old, competing at her 20th Wimbledon, will become the oldest women's Grand Slam champion in the Open Era (since 1968) if she wins at the weekend but the American isn't taking anything for granted following her semi-final victory over Britain's No 1 Johanna Konta.

She said “I feel very focused still, there's still a lot to be done. I have one more match that I'd like to, you know, be the winner of. I have to go out there and take it and play well. But I like to take courage in the fact that I've been playing well this tournament and this year, and all these moments have led to this. Yeah, there's definitely a lot of ups and downs, I just try to hold my head up high, no matter what is happening in life. In sport especially, you have injuries. You have illnesses. You're not going to be always playing 100%. If I decide to walk out on the court, I try to just compete that day. That's what I try to do.”
