>> Five-time Wimbledon Singles champion Venus Williams is one step closer to making it six. The American powering into another final. A thumping winning four-hand helping to see off Brit Johanna Konta in straight sets. Konta in her first semi-final gave a spirited show in the first set, the sixth seed enjoying the support of a home crowd.
But after tying at four games a piece, Venus took it up a gear. Her power proving too much for Konta, Williams' age not showing. The 37 year old is on course to become the oldest Wimbledon champion of the professional era. The pressure of center court is now a familiar setting for one of the sports titans.
Alongside her single's trophies, she's also won six doubles titles at the All England Club and without her sister, Serena, here, she's odds on favorite to add to her silverware. Spain's Garbine Muguruza will face her in the final. It was Venus' off court actions that dominated headlines going into this tournament.
Last week, US police cleared her of any wrongdoing in a fatal car crash. When she steps onto center court Saturday, she'll be hoping to write herself into the history books.
