Garbine Muguruza powered her way into the Wimbledon women's final with a 6-1 6-1 demolition of Magdalena Rybarikova in just 64 minutes on Centre Court.

The Spaniard, seeded 14th, took advantage of a nerve-ridden performance from the Slovak world No 87 to secure her second Wimbledon final in two years after achieving the same feat in 2015.

Muguruza, who won the French Open in 2016, will now play the winner of the second match between five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams and British No 1 Johanna Konta.

"I played very well for sure. Today I stepped on court super confident and everything went well," Muguruza said.

"Once you are in these situations before you know how to handle them better. Definitely that helped me.

"I'm playing well. I want to keep it up for my last match and hopefully it goes well. I'm going to enjoy it. Being in a Grand Slam final is a great achievement."

She is guaranteed to regain her top 10 ranking next week and would climb into the top five if she wins Wimbledon.
