Garbine Muguruza beat Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final.
The Spanish tennis player overcame two set points by Venus Williams to rally and win the first set en route to a 7-5, 6-0 victory over the 37 year old American. Williams was trying to become the oldest woman in the Open era to win a Grand Slam title.
Muguruza lost to Serena Williams in the 2015 Wimbledon final. She came back with a vengeance and never lost a single game. She broke Venus’ serve three times in the second set as part of a win-game run.
It ended when Williams hit a shot that landed long, but was ruled in. Muguruza challenged the call and after a bit of a delay, the review showed that the ball was out. Muguruza waited in anticipation and waited to celebrate. But she eventually fell to her knees and covered her face as tears arrived. The 23 year old said, “When I was a little girl I was watching these finals. I was watching Venus –– I know it sounds incredible. TO be able to play against her and now hold the big trophy, it means a lot.”
