  7. Konta news conference

    On herself to make that step to win the tournament:

    "Quite honestly I think I was in with a shot of winning the tournament. On the day Venus played better than me. I've got a lot more to improve on. Exciting for me and my team. I definitely don't see why I won't be a position to win a title like this one."

    Whether she has improved during this tournament?

    "I was very happy with the level I was able to produce day in and day out for two weeks. The way I stayed true to my own values. I stayed very happy and stayed enjoying the journey."

  8. Konta news conference

    On Williams serving 106mph on her second serve to save a break point:

    "It took my break point chance away. It showed why she's a five-time champion. That was one of the few opportunities I had and she took them away."

  9. Konta news conference

    Jo Konta

    On Venus Williams:

    "She did what she does well. She dictated from the first ball of the match to the last. She showed why she's a five-time champion. It was hard to get a foothold in the match. The few opportunities I got she did well to take them from me.

  10. Williams news conference

    On her final opponent, Garbine Muguruza:

    "I've never played her on grass. That will be a different factor. I'll see what's working. I haven't really seen her matches at the tournament. I'll have to see what happens in the final."

  11. Williams news conference

    Are you playing the best tennis of your life?

    "I've played some good tennis in different points of my life. It's good to have the opportunity to play well. Experience can go for you or against you. It's going for me.

    Comparing her nerves now to playing her first match 20 years ago:

    "I don't think I can be as nervous as I was in my first match 20 years ago."

  12. Williams news conference

    More from Venus Williams:

    "This year has been amazing in terms of my play. I'm excited about being in another final. I try to take it a step further.

    "It's about betting on myself every time. When I look at the person across the net it's not the right mentality to think they are better than me."

    On ups and downs:

    "In sport you have injuries and illnesss and won't be at 100%. When I walk out on court I try to compete on that day."

  19. Post update

    Martina Navratilova

    Nine-time Wimbledon singles champion

    Venus started to target the forehand so much in the rallies - she kept breaking down the Konta forehand more and more.

    The women generally have improved their serves but don't use the hand enough - everyone has also improved the return of serve but now they need to improve the action of the serve.

    The accumulative pressure from Venus Williams' serve was enough to sway the match today.

  20. A tale of two serves

    Williams 6-4 6-2 Konta

    Konta and Williams

    Johanna Konta hit seven aces to Venus Williams' one.

    Her first-serve percentage was higher as well - 68% compared to 66%.

    But the Williams serve really set her fair when it landed. The American won 79% of points when it went in.
