What if there is no Serena Williams! What if the tournament favourites and top seeds have fallen wayside too early, too soon! Wimbledon 2017 Women’s Final still holds the same charm and interest as any of the recent Grand Slam tournaments.

The 37-year-young Venus Williams will try to shatter more records and keep the title at the Williams’ home while Spanish sensation Garbine Muguruza will look to win her maiden Wimbledon title. The final will be played on Saturday, July 15.

Run to the final – Venus
Venus is a five-time Champion here and has always shown her preference to the grass pitches. However, injuries and poor form meant that the elder Williams sibling slowly went off the radar.

This year though has seen the old pugnacious Venus as was evident in her run to the finals of the Australian Open where she lost to younger sister Serena. Now with Serena not in play, it could be her chance to win her first Grand Slam title since 2008 Wimbledon.

Her run to the final started on the back foot where in the second round she was harried by Wang Qiang of China. That incidentally was the only match which went to three sets for Venus. Along the way, she brushed off the challenges of Jelena Ostapenko and Johanna Konta, comprehensively.

Run to the final – Muguruza
The Spaniard is a 2015 runner-up here and is a surprise finalist from the top-half. After winning in straight sets in the first three rounds, the 14th seeded Muguruza toppled world number one Angelique Kerber in the pre-quarters.

The three-set win over Kerber suddenly made everyone take notice of Muguruza. She promptly dispatched Svetlana Kuznetsova and Magdalena Rybarikova – who was on a splendid run of her own – in the next rounds with ease.

The 2016 French Open Champion has been struggling ever since her maiden Grand Slam triumph to live up to the expectations. Her tremendously impressive and dominant performances should make her confident of a victory.

History beckons Venus
Venus is already the oldest Wimbledon women’s singles finalist since Martina Navratilova in 1994. A title win will make her the oldest women’s singles champion in history.

But the task for her will not be easy as Muguruza has not just punched above her seeding but also displayed the level of consistency and intensity required of a champion. Incidentally, her previous run to the Wimbledon final in 2015 ended in a loss to Serena.

Stats
Venus holds a 3-1 advantage over Muguruza, although they are yet to play on grass. The last encounter was in the Rome asters where the Spaniard won in three sets.

Picks
Venus showed her class and form throughout the tournament reaching the final almost unnoticed. Odds of $2.05 (William Hill) make her an underdog for the match.

Understandably so, considering the run Muguruza had. Lack of consistent displays was her bane but not in this tournament. Odds of $1.80 (bet365) make her bettors’ favourite.

Both players start on equal footing and the feeling around SW19 is that this match could be decided in three sets. Odds being offered are $2.25 (William Hill)

TIP: Total sets OVER 2.5 – $2.25 at William Hill
