Venus Williams and Garbine Muguruza will face off in the 2017 Wimbledon Women’s Final on Saturday. Watch the live stream below!

Williams is looking to win her sixth Wimbledon title, and at age 37, she is Wimbledon’s oldest female finalist in two decades. To get to the last stage of the tournament, she entered this year’s competition as the 10th seed. In the preliminary rounds, she defeated Wang Qiang, Naomi Osaka and Ana Konjuh. Williams went on to beat Jeļena Ostapenko in the quarterfinals, and then Johanna Konta in the semifinals.

Muguruza was ranked 14th at the start of the multi-day event. Her early opponents included Yanina Wickmayer, Sorana Cirstea and the number one seed, Angelique Kerber. After surprisingly topping Kerber, the Spanish athlete took Svetlana Kuznetsova and Magdalena Rybáriková out of the running, too, in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively. The 23-year-old has only competed in the Wimbledon Women’s Final once before, and that was actually against William’s sister Serena in 2015. Serena, who won that year and again in 2016, did not compete this time around since she is pregnant with her first child.

Muguruza does have a French Open title to her name, and although she’s been far less successful than Williams over the years, she is not carrying the same emotional baggage today. As Gossip Cop has reported, just two weeks ago, it was revealed Williams was involved in a car crash that led to the death of a 78-year-old man. Police initially said she was at fault, but then retracted that assertion after reviewing surveillance footage.

Still, the victim’s family is preparing a wrongful death lawsuit against her, and on Friday, it was reported their counsel has subpoenaed Williams’ phone and medical records. That’s despite officials saying the tennis player did not have drugs or alcohol in her system, and was not preoccupied by her phone at the time of the accident. At a Wimbledon press conference earlier this month, Williams broke down in tears over the situation.

Yet despite this figurative weight on her shoulders, she is on track for her first Wimbledon Women’s Final victory since 2008. Williams and Muguruza are pictured above at the 2015 Wuhan Open, where Muguruza retired in the second set, giving Williams the win. ESPN’s Wimbledon coverage will begin at 8 a.m. Eastern, with the official match slated for around 9. Check out the live stream below. UPDATE: Venus Williams lost to Garbine Muguruza in the Wimbledon Final.
