Marin Cilic already has his sights set on making the Wimbledon final again after injury contributed to a straight-sets loss at the hands of the imperious Roger Federer on Sunday.

The Croatian seventh seed had claimed he was in his best condition for years at a grand slam that saw both Novak Djokovic and holder Andy Murray hampered by physical problems in making quarter-final exits.

Muguruza will face Williams in Saturday's final, with the Spaniard seeking her second major title having won the French Open in 2016 - a year after losing to Venus' younger sister Serena in the 2015 All England Club showpiece.
