Serena Williams, after 20 Grand Slam victories and dominating tennis for neigh on a decade, still divides opinion. Some believe she is a living legend who has almost singled-handedly changed women’s tennis forever. Others accuse the American of overplaying illness and injury to mask poor performances.

Whichever side of the fence you sit on, there isn’t likely to be another Serena Williams in women’s tennis for a long time and the 33-year old won’t be around for too much longer – enjoy her blend of power and skill while you can. When Serena puts her mind to it and is at her best, she is utterly devastating and leaves her opponents with little to no chance of victory.

Serena had her increasingly usual wobble in the early rounds – this time to Britain’s Heather Watson – but as in Paris, she hung on to win that match and has hit her stride since.

Williams dominated Maria Sharapova in ominous fashion in the semi-finals. Muguruza came into Wimbledon as the number 20 seed, and will be hoping to stage a repeat of the 2014 French Open when she took advantage of a poor Williams to win 6-2, 6-2. Yet, the more successful of the Williams sisters has beaten the Spaniard in their two other meetings, 6-2, 6-0 at the 2013 Australian Open and in three sets in the fourth round of same tournament this year.

Muguruza celebrated reaching the Wimbledon final in a manner that suggested she has, perhaps subconsciously at least, achieved what she set out to do.
