Head to Head

Head to Head Venus Williams Garbiñe Muguruza
  3 1

 

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.

Advantage: Williams

 

Wimbledon History

Wimbledon History Venus Williams Garbiñe Muguruza
Titles 5 0
Finals 8 1

 

Ok that is maybe a little unfair as Williams has been around the block a lot more, but the last time she was in a Wimbledon final was in 2008, while Muguruza had an inspired run to the final in 2015, losing out to Serena Williams

Advantage: Williams

 

Year to Date W/L Record

Year to Date Venus Williams Garbiñe Muguruza
All surfaces W/L 26-7 29-13
Grass court 6-0 9-2

 

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.

Advantage: Muguruza

Tie-breaks

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.

Deciding Sets

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

Deuce

 

Tournament

Serve/Return

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.

Deuce

Williams and Muguruza will play the Wimbledon Ladies’ Singles final on Centre Court at 2pm
