Venus Williams leads their head to head 3-1, but this is their first meeting at a Grand Slam, and their first meeting on grass. Williams won their only encounter in a final at Wuhan, in 2015, but Garbiñe Muguruza stopped the run of games against her in Rome, this year.
|Wimbledon History||Venus Williams||Garbiñe Muguruza|

Year to Date W/L Record
|Year to Date||Venus Williams||Garbiñe Muguruza|
|All surfaces W/L||26-7||29-13|
Muguruza has looked a little more solid overall over the year, but has more time on the grass and for such a short season, the extra match play may just tip the balance in her favour.
Match Stats 2017
|Venus Williams||Garbiñe Muguruza|
|Tie-Breaks (grass court)||10-1 (2-0)||3-7 (0)|
|Deciding sets (grass court)||5-4 (1-0)||
Williams has been dominant on her end of the tie-breaks while Muguruza has been a battered when it comes to battling it out for the set.
Muguruza has been taken to a decider way more than Williams, but her fighting spirit has seen her lose only the same as Williams which makes her a little more formidable a prospect if this goes the distance, with both of them dropping a set on the way to the final
Williams has been just a little more solid than the Spaniard on her first serve percentage but Muguruza has been a little more effective on the second serve. Williams has been a lot more fluid with the aces but similarly heavy wth the double faults.
Muguruza has been just a little more steady with the return games but in terms of winners and unforced errors there are literally a couple of points in it.
Williams and Muguruza will play the Wimbledon Ladies’ Singles final on Centre Court at 2pm
