Head to Head

Venus Williams and Muguruza have met on 4 previous occassions heading into tonight's final, with Venus holding a 3-1 advantage over the Spaniard.

It was Muguruza who got the better of the match up last time these two played though, winning in 3 sets in Rome just a few weeks ago. That match was on clay though where Muguruza holds a clear advantage. Venus has won the other three all on faster surfaces.

Recent Form

After a disappointing performance at Eastbourne, Muguruza has been in great form here at Wimbledon. She has dropped just the one set (against Kerber) on route to the final and is coming in off a crushing 6-1, 6-1 semi final win over Rybarikova.

Venus has wound back the clock this year as well. She has backed up her Australian Open final performance with another final here and has also only lost the one set on her way. She looked as good as she has for some time against Konta in the semi final with her return of serve nullifying the Brits big weapon.


​Despite having not won a slam in over a decade Venus Williams definitely has history on her side to be able to take the title. A former 5 time champion here at Wimbledon she knows how to get it done on the big stage and won't let the occasion get the better of her as a seasoned performer.

The younger Muguruza has a fairly strong record herself. A former finalist here at Wimbledon and French Open champion, she should also be able to keep her composure on the big stage where she has been before.

Our Prediction

There looks to be very little in this match with both players coming in with brilliant form. But with the better H2H record and the past record here at Wimbledon we have to give Venus Williams the edge and as the outsider she looks the definite value.
