It would be wrong to state that Konta has failed to woo the British public.
But Muguruza wasted no time in taking command of the one-way contest, racing to 3-0 after just 10 minutes. All Konta could do was back away and wave meekly at the ball, sending it into the bottom of the net. "I thought the crowd was very nice to me".
If the 37-year-old wins on Thursday, she will become the oldest Wimbledon finalist since Martina Navratilova in 1994, while lifting the aptly named Venus Rosewater Dish would make her the oldest All England Club champion in the Open era, breaking her sister Serena's record.
She is the first Spanish woman to reach more than one Wimbledon final since Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in the 1990s. Konta owns zero such trophies. "I'm sure to a certain extent, definitely", Konta said. This is Muguruza's second time in the final - she lost to Serena Williams in 2015.
As we said on the first look everything is clear that Federer is an absolute favorite.
"I know this will be my second slam semi-final, but nerves and excitement and those sorts of emotions that come along with big matches aren't necessarily specific to Grand Slam moments", Konta said. "We'll see what's going to happen".
The pair have faced off four times previously, with the ledger split at 2-2. Muguruza won the only past match at a major, 14-12 in the third set at the Australian Open in 2013. Before Thursday's Centre Court clash, Rybarikova had won 17 out of 18 matches on grass this year, albeit at lower-level tournaments (in Surbiton, Ilkley and Nottingham), after returning from a long-term injury layoff.

"This year has been awesome in terms of my play, playing deep into the big events actually".
From the moment she swerved nonchalantly to avoid a persistent flying insect before making her first serve of the match (much to the delight of Centre Court patrons), Williams was locked in and switched on.
In a professional career lasting more than two decades, Venus is closing in on a 50th WTA title and credits her longevity to her love of the game and a desire to constantly improve. "It's like home for her".
It proved only a fleeting window of opportunity, however, as Williams saved the first with a backhand victor and launched a 106mph second serve to snuff out the second. Been working on that serve. Konta might be tipped by the bookmakers to become the first British women's Wimbledon champion since 1977, but truth be told, this is new territory for her as she had never crossed the second round hurdle previously.
The latter has been great with passing shots so far, and her raw power in the rallies often prevents opponents from advancing up the court in the first place.
"I still feel quite capable, to be honest, and powerful".
