Muguruza, the 2016 French Open champion who lost to Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final the previous year, had just that bit more control in a hard-hitting baseline duel to follow up her victory over top seed Angelique Kerber on Monday. There's no other explanation.
Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? That's what I'm doing.
"I had a really tough time", Rybarikova said, "and right now, I'm here, and everything paid off". It's a handsome game.
"I wouldn't say it's favoritism", Lewis said. She also become the first women to be in the Wimbledon semifinals since Virginia Wade was the runner-up in 1978. "I think I didn't start the match very well". With Venus Williams being the only former champion left, in all probability, a new champion might be crowned on Saturday.
The 37-year-old Williams defeated 20-year-old Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia 6-3, 7-5, and is now two wins from winning Wimbledon for the sixth time - and first since 2008.
But her aggressive, risk and reward game came unstuck against the powerful Williams serve. The Russian won the first set 7-5 and was trailing 0-1 in the second when she retired after 39-minutes of play. A few unforced errors later, though, and Williams broke again for a 6-5 lead before serving out the match.
She said for a lot of the players she's played it's their first time they've gone deep in the tournament and she banks on her experience in dealing with the pressures. "You know, so I'm definitely really happy for her".
The Latvian had a glimpse of a break in the eighth game, but netted one forehand and sent another long to find herself 40-15 down. That is one thing I do know. Ostapenko had one ace and 20 winners. I don't like when I play and nobody's watching the match. Venus, wonderfully poised and strikingly precise, used her hitman serve to stunning effect, picking up her 86th win here.
French Open finalists Simona Halep and Jelena Ostapenko are the biggest names to watch on the women's side, along with Venus Williams.
And if the American adds to titles in 2000-01, '05 and '07-8, she will become the second oldest champion in Wimbledon history. "Because of that I had more pressure because I had to keep my serve", said Ostapenko. "That's all I felt like".
The Spaniard - who is the 14th seed at the All England Club - won 6-3 6-4 with relative ease and will go onto face either America's Coco Vandeweghe or Slovakia's Magdalena Rybarikova. If she loses in the semifinals, she'll make $706,000.
Over on No. 1 Court, Konta won 7-6 (3), 4-6, 6-4 against No. 21 Caroline Garcia of France.
Ostapenko had never before been past the third round at a major tournament before this year's French Open. She missed the second half of last season after wrist and knee operations, and her ranking fell out of the top 400.
