Wimbledon 2017: Garbine Muguruza Beats Five-Time Champion, Venus Williams To Win Her Second Grand-Slam

Venus Williams
Spanish player, Garbine Muguruza claimed her second Grand-Slam after crushing 37-year-old Venus Williams, 7-5 6-0 in the Wimbledon finals.
Williams, a five-time champion who had been trying to become the oldest winner of a major in the Open era, had squandered two set points at 5-4 in the first set.
After Williams lost a 19-shot rally on the second set point, the Spaniard ran away with the match as the American struggled to find her range.
The 23-year-old became the second Spanish woman to win Wimbledon, a title she lost to Venus’ sister Serena in her maiden Wimbledon final in 2015.

Muguruza said: “The first set was tough. We both had a lot of chances. I’m glad I took mine.

“Two years ago I lost in the final against Serena and she told me I would win one day. Here I am. Finally!”

Muguruza’s current coach Conchita Martinez was the first woman to raise the Spanish flag at Wimbledon in 1994 when she defeated Martina Navratilova.

In her reaction, Venus Williams, 37, said: “Congratulations Garbine. I know how hard you work.

“I tried my best to do the things Serena does, but I think there will be other opportunities”
