LONDON, Great Britain - The 2017 Wimbledon final is set as Venus Williams will aim to take home the trophy that bears her name for the sixth time in her illustrious career.

Standing in her way is the scintillating Spaniard, Garbiñe Muguruza, who stunned the tennis world when she won Roland Garros just over a year ago. Can the former World No.2 step up and capture her second Grand Slam title?

With 14 years separating the combatants, Saturday's final will feature the widest age gap since 1994, when a 22-year-old Conchita Martinez halted 37-year-old Martina Navratilova's fairytale run to the championship match.
