Muguruza advances to Wimbledon final for second time

IANS  |  London 

Spaniard Garbine Muguruza smashed Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1 on Thursday and advanced into the women's singles final of the Wimbledon tennis championships for the second time.

One hour and four minutes was enough for 14th seed Muguruza to get rid of the 28-year-old Rybarikova, who has never passed the third round at any Grand Slam before the 2017 Wimbledon, reports Efe.

Rybarikova, who ousted third seed Karolina Pliskova, seemed off-colour in front of Muguruza who put on a strong performance, to get into the final for the second time at the All England Club.

The 2016 French Open champion reached the Wimbledon final for the first time in 2015, when she lost to American legend Serena Williams.

Muguruza is now set to play against the winner of the match between American veteran Venus Williams and local favourite Johanna Konta.
