Wonderful Williams ends Konta's Wimbledon dream

Wonderful Williams ends Konta's Wimbledon dream Wonderful Williams ends Konta's Wimbledon dream

Briton Johanna Konta's hopes of a first Wimbledon final ended with a straight-set semi-final defeat by five-time champion Venus Williams.

The 23-year-old Spaniard ruthlessly ended the dream run of unseeded Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1 on Centre Court, setting up a showdown with five-time victor Venus Williams tomorrow.

Two years ago, the 23-year-old Spaniard lost out to Serena Williams in the women's showpiece event but, now, in her second final in three years at SW19, she is determined to go one better, this time against the older Williams sister, Venus.

But after reaching the Australian Open decider in January, losing to Serena, Williams is now into tennis's most famous final for a ninth time - eight years after her eighth appearance.

"I played a lot of finals here, so I couldn't ask for more, but one more win would be incredible", Williams said. "We work so many years for these moments that she has right now, and I'm really happy for her", the 23-time Slam victor said.

Asked what was going through her head at the finish, Konta said: "Damn, I'm done".

At 37, Williams is the oldest finalist at the All England Club since Martina Navratilova was the 1994 runner-up at that age. "She knows how to play, especially Wimbledon finals". I just wish she was here and I wish she could do this for me. I was sometimes thinking maybe I'm never going to come back, and here I am in the semi-final of a grand slam.

As happened often during the match, Konta lost the first point on serve but was helped by an ace and a forehand victor to reach 40-30. I think my experience was important.

"I think I played very well, for sure", Muguruza said in her televised interview after the match. I just have to be more relaxed and more belief in myself.

- Muguruza could become just the second Spanish player to win multiple women's singles grand slams (Arantxa Sanchez Vicario - 4). The result 6-4, 6-2 might suggest otherwise, but we saw a real battle in this match. I couldn't have asked for more, but I'll ask for a little more.

"I try to have a big one, as well".

"I missed (Serena) so much before this match and".

".All my energy is towards making her want to be great and making her want to win".
