Garbine Muguruza Beats Venus Williams to Win 1st Title
Spain's Garbine Muguruza won her first Wimbledon title with a straight-set win over five-time champion Venus Williams, according to BBC sports.
The 23-year-old saved two set points and won the last nine games in a 7-5 6-0 victory under the Centre Court roof.
Muguruza denied the 37-year-old a first major title for nine years, which would have made her the oldest female Grand Slam champion in the Open era.
It is 14th seed Muguruza's second Grand Slam title after her French Open triumph over Serena Williams in 2016.
"I had the hardest match today against Venus," said Muguruza.
"She's such an incredible player. I grew up watching her play - sorry," she added, to the watching American.
"I feel incredible to be able to play her here. Of course I'm nervous because I always dreamed about winning it, but I was composed."
Having lost to Serena Williams in the 2015 final, Muguruza becomes the second Spanish woman to win the Wimbledon singles title after her coach, Conchita Martinez.
