At the age of 37, Venus Williams is hoping to become the oldest women’s champion in the open era. Known as one of the best grass-court players in tennis history, Venus holds a remarkable 84.00% winning record throughout her career on this surface. Taking a look now at Williams’ campaign on this event, the five-time Wimbledon champion reaches this stage of the competition after an impressive 6 – 4 6 – 2 win against Johanna Konta. Besides ending that match with an incredible 2.13 winners / unforced errors ratio, Venus saved all the two break points she faced.

Playing on the big stages brings the best out of Garbine Muguruza. In addition to her outstanding 72.86% career record on Grand Slam events, the 23-year-old Spaniard will play her third major final this Saturday. After a disappointing defeat against Serena Williams at the 2015 Wimbledon final, Muguruza is trying to go a step further on this year’s edition. Garbine couldn’t have asked for a better performance before this final with an astonishing 6 – 1 6 – 1 victory over Magdalena Rybarikova in the semifinals.

This will be the 5th career meeting between these two players with Venus leading on the h2h by 3 – 1.

Despite Williams’ dominance on the h2h, Muguruza emerged victorious from their most recent encounter at the Internazionali BNL D’Italia in Rome. The sportsbooks expect a very close match between these two player and we have to agree with them. Both have been at an exceptional level throughout this competition and it won’t be easy for any of them to get the job done in straight sets. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to take advantage of the Over tennis betting odds by adding the Over 2.5 sets to your betting picks.
