Garbine Muguruza: 'I'm not afraid of Serena Williams'

Garbine Muguruza reveals that her past success against Serena Williams at the French Open in 2014 has given her confidence ahead of the Wimbledon final.

Garbine Muguruza has said that her victory over Serena Williams at the French Open in 2014 will stand her in good stead for their showdown in the Wimbledon final.

The 21-year-old will face the American in her first Grand Slam final, but the Spaniard is confident that she will not be overawed by the experience following her straight-sets win over the 33-year-old at Roland Garros last year.

"It's really important because it makes you see and realise that she's also a person," Muguruza told reporters.

"She knows that I can win against her, that I'm not afraid. I don't think she's really used to this. Serena doesn't lose so many matches in the year. I think it's important."

Muguruza faces off against Williams on Centre Court later today.
