Venus Williams on track for record breaking Wimbledon run

Venus Williams has blasted through to her ninth Wimbledon final after beating Johanna Konta.

Williams disposed of the Sydney-born brit easily, winning 6-4 6-2 and has booked a place in the final against Spaniard Garbine Muguruza.

The 37-year-old American flew through the match, winning in just over an hour.


If she triumphs in the final she will be the oldest women’s grand slam champion in professional history.

In the men’s, Tomas Berdych is planning an upset against fellow veteran Roger Federer when they meet in the semi-finals tonight.
