Johanna Konta beaten by Venus Williams in Wimbledon semi-finals

The 26-year-old Konta had hoped to become the first British woman in a Wimbledon singles final since 1977, but she ended up being no match for Venus.

Muguruza was beaten by Serena Williams in her first grand slam final at the All England Club two years ago, but will get another chance to lift the Venus Rosewater Dish on Saturday.

In the second match on Centre Court, Williams was looking to reach her ninth final at the All England Club - and first since 2009.

Standing in her way will be Spain's Garbine Muguruza, who lost her previous Wimbledon final in 2015, to Serena. In fact, it is the first time since 1978 that Britain has had a woman in the semifinals. "She plays really well against me", said Williams.

"They're definitely here with me, for sure", Williams said. The 2016 French Open champion then broke Rybarikova twice to open the second set and take a 4-0 lead. "She showed a lot of courage, played in tough situations against players who were in form", Williams said.

There was little between the two in the first set and it was Konta, the number six seed, that forced two break points. I'm just so happy.

Politics over Presidential election 2017 started after Kumar extended his support to the NDA candidate Kovind last month. He said that "We have always supported GST as it will provide transparency to the system".

"I had a lot of issues", Williams said afterwards.

"It's something that is greater than me and obviously just my focus on my match and my performance, and trying to improve. It's not a given, but I'm going to give it my all". She was all smiles as she waved to the crowd after the match. "So when people ask where I'm from, and where is home - that is where it is". "I tried to climb on top and get another point". It's fine to be the last British women's victor at Wimbledon but it's better to have plenty of British players to win.

The veteran last triumphed at Wimbledon in 2008, which remains her seventh and final grand slam singles title.

Venus Williams can feel sister Serena fighting alongside her as she tries to keep the Wimbledon title in the family.

He added that he sees Konta making history and defeating Williams today as he believes the American tennis legend won't be able to cover the court as well as Konta's last opponent.

"I just don't want it to be over like Andy Murray losing".
