SERENA Williams takes on Garbine Muguruza in the women’s Wimbledon final on Saturday. The five-time champion will hold all four Grand Slam titles should she win, as Mark Stinchcombe (@MarkStinchcombe) expects.

As expected, Serena Williams comfortably beat Maria Sharapova 6-2 6-4 in the semi-final. She served well, took advantage of her opportunities on Maria's serve and hit consistently well.

Garbine Muguruza raced into a 6-2 3-1 lead against Agnieska Radwanska before nerves seemingly got the better of her, going on to lose five straight games and the second set before bouncing back to take the decider 6-3.

As always, the match is on Serena's racket but Garbine does have the game to compete with Williams. They've met three times before with Williams leading 2-1, the Spaniard famously causing a shock, knocking Serena out in the second round of the French Open last year.

With that in mind, the value looks to be in a tight match with Williams prevailing. Serena has won nine of her last 18 Grand Slam matches 2-1 (50%) and the last time she was in the Wimbledon final in 2012 she beat Agnieszka Radwanska in three sets.

Five of Muguruza's nine grass court matches have been three sets and when the two met in the fourth round of the Australian Open this year, Serena dropped the opener 2-6 before coming back to win 6-3 6-2. Back Serena to win 2-1 at 7/2 with Sportingbet.
