Venus Williams Sends a Message to Serena Williams After Wimbledon 2017 Loss

Venus Williams smiles to the crowd at Wimbledon 2017

As the scoreboard showed the ball had bounced out at 40-30 in the final game, the Spaniard fell to the ground, before covering her face in an emotional celebration. It's a long two weeks. This year has been amazing in terms of my play, playing deep into the big events.

In a message to her watching sister, Williams added: I miss you Serena.

It was Muguruza's turn to get chances to break and she fist-pumped her way to her bench when she out-rallied a powerful Williams to go ahead 6-5. Williams herself congratulated the Spaniard, saying that she knows "how hard" she had worked. She also won the French Open last year.

The roof over Centre Court is closed for the women's final at Wimbledon. I was doing everything I could to be prepared. Muguruza said it was all nothing.

In her pursuit of becoming the oldest woman in the Open era to win a Grand Slam title, Williams, 37, was defeated by Garbine Muguruza in the Wimbledon final, 7-5, 6-0. The previous time, you're so concentrated that you cannot enjoy it as well.

Williams was grace itself in defeat. And she's expecting the same kind of atmosphere despite the unfamiliar opponent. But it will be a mainly cloudy day with a slight risk of showers.

Stay up-to-date with the latest news, stories and insider events. So there's definitely something for me to learn from this. "The racket has to talk".

Asked at courtside if she had anything to say to him, she held the trophy aloft and said: "Here it is".

So far, these ladies have met four times, and Venus Williams has three victories while the 23-years-old Muguruza, only one.

Williams is playing for her 6th Wimbledon title and 8th Grand Slam title. "She just has to play tennis, and not worry about who's favored or who isn't favored".

Other than winning. As, of course, is Williams.

When Martinez won at Wimbledon for her only major, she beat 37-year-old Martina Navratilova in the final.

Garbine Muguruza hopes Roger Federer wins the Gentleman's Final so they can share a dance at the Wimbledon Champions' Dinner. Venus has won 11 of her last 12 matches on grass court. That missed opportunity seemed to affect Venus more than it should have done for a player of such experience, because in the very next game, it was Muguruza who found the first break of the match. I think Jo handled the pressure.
