Serena Williams reached the final after defeating her Czech opponent Petra Kvitov√° 7-6 (5), 6-2 in straight sets in the semi final. On the other hand, Vera Zvonareva ensured her first appearance in a grand slam final after pulling off a three-set victory over Tsvetana Pironkova, who defeated Venus Williams in the quarter final.

It seems to be a dream-come-true for Vera Zvonareva whose previous ever Grand Slam success was the semi final appearance in Australian Open 2009. Now, she would face no. 1 ranked Serena Williams who has 12 grand slam singles titles to her credit.

Though Zvonareva defeated star players like Kim Clijsters and Jelena Jankovic in her way to the final, she would find a stiff challenge from Serena who would be looking to win her 4th Wimbledon singles title. However, the Russian seems to be pretty much confident ahead of the match.

Zvonareva revealed to the media, “I always believe in myself. I don't care about what everyone says. I'll just have to go out there on the court and try to play my best tennis.

"I know if I play my best I can beat anyone on the other side of the net. I never look at any odds or comparisons. It's not important to me.”

Serena Williams has been in high-flying form in the tournament. As the defending champion, the 28-year-old would not like to lose the title. However, Serena is not feeling any kind of complacency, despite the status of her opponent with whom she has 5-1 winning record in all competitions.

The only defeat she suffered was in 2004 when she withdrew herself from a quarter final meeting with Zvonareva in San Diego. So, apparently Serena was never defeated by the Russian on the court.

Serena said to the media, “On paper it looks like I should win. But Vera has beaten some good people. She's a fighter. She never gives up.

It's tough playing a player like that who doesn't really have one real weakness and everything pretty much is a strength, from her forehand to her backhand to her movement.”

Serena William would go into the match as clear favorite, but there is every possibility Vera Zvonareva could clinch her first ever grand slam singles title in Wimbledon, given her recent form and immense confidence. Vera Zvonareva’s win over Serena Williams would be one of the biggest upsets in the history of Wimbledon.
