The keenly observed match by many people in Britain of Johanna and Venus was really close in the first set. But Williams’ determination and demonstrating power, won the key points to conquer the match with 6-4, 6-2.

The 26-year-old player, Konta said in a statement

Definitely. This was my second grand slam semi-final. It was her 202nd, I bet, so she definitely came into the match with a lot more experience than I did. I think I was in with just as much of a shot of winning this tournament here. I think today it came down to the day and Venus played better than me. That’s really all I can say.

"I've played some good tennis at different points of my life," Williams said in an understatement. "I think it's wonderful to have the opportunity to play well and to be strong and have experience.”

She added

I’ve played a lot of finals here. It's been a blessing. I couldn't have asked for more, but I'll ask for one more. One more win would be amazing. It's not a given, but I'm going to give it my all.

"It's usually her [Serena] in these finals so I'm just trying to represent Williams as best I can"
