Muguruza advances to #Wimbledon final, Serena looms
Good news: You’ve reached the Women’s Final at Wimbledon, where you will compete for the most treasured trophy in tennis. Bad news: You have to beat Serena Williams to get it.
Garbine Muguruza of Spain defeated Aga Radwanska 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 to advance to Saturday’s Women’s Final, where she will face Serena Williams, who is the overwhelming favorite to add to her Slam collection. Williams beat Maria Sharapova 6-2, 6-4 in the other semi. Fitting Muguruza should reach the final on Throwback Thursday- the last Spanish competitor to get this far on the women’s side was Aranxta Sanchez-Vicario in 1996, while the last champion for that country was Conchita Martinez in 1994. (Winners list here.)
Muguruza’s tennis fashion: Muguruza will be, by our unscientific estimate, the first woman to wear adidas in the Wimbledon finals since Justine Henin in 2006. Check out her adidas/McCartney apparel here: skort and tank by Stella McCartney for adidas.
