Muguruza then carried that impetus into the next game and broke.
Yet for Williams, they've always been sisters first, competitors second. "I wanted to give them more, but I didn't and I was sad for them".
If she emulates Serena's win over Muguruza in the 2015 final, Williams will also keep the trophy in the family and earn world sport's most successful siblings a remarkable 13th Wimbledon singles crown in 17 years.
Williams will face Russia's Garbine Muguruza in the final to be held on July 15.
Konta, the number six seed, had the home crowd on her side but on just her second appearance at the semi-final stage of a grand slam looked overwhelmed by the occasion.
Indeed, the slick surface lends itself to Williams' power-based game, making her terrific serve that much tougher to handle and giving her groundstrokes extra sting.
But her 6-1, 6-1 demolition of a nervous and rattled Magdalena Rybarikova on Thursday was not necessarily the right preparation for the laser-focused and finals-tested Venus Williams. The formula appears to be working, with Muguruza back in a major final for the first time since she won the French Open last year, when she beat Serena Williams, 7-5, 6-4. Konta played so well, no point was easy. "I just tried to climb on top each time to get another point".
"I wasn't expecting anything because you never know how it's going to go". Williams demonstrated that repeatedly against Konta, especially on a 106-mile-per-hour second serve that saved a break point at 4-4, 30-40, in the first set.
The 28-year-old has been in scintillating form after struggling to recover from a series of injuries last year. "It's for sure good tournament for me".
Muguruza recorded 22 winners against just 11 unforced errors in the quick match.
She faced only one break point, saving it. She earned 12 on Rybarikova's serve, converting five. "It was very special to be playing all my matches on such great courts with such massive support".
Pliskova will become the 23rd woman to spend time at No. 1. On Wednesday, it was California's Sam Querrey knocking off No. 1-ranked Andy Murray, the tournament's defending champion. That would crazy for me. "So whatever age that is, as long as I feel like that, then I know that I can contend for titles every time". On Monday, Caroline Garcia said she did not see her father and coach signaling to her during her fourth-round loss to Johanna Konta.
