Spain’s Garbine Muguruza on Saturday beat former champion Venus Williams in the final to win the 2017 Wimbledon Open.
Muguruza beat Williams 7-5, 6-0 to win her first title at the All England Club.
It was a match between the new and the old as five-time champion Venus reached a major final for the first time in almost a decade.
But at the Center Court in Wimbledon, it was the 23-year-old Spaniard who stole the show.
Seeded 14th before the tournament, four places behind the losing finalist, Muguruza saw off the likes of Svetlana Kuznetsova on her way into the final.
She saved two set-points in the first set and dazed the seven-time Grand Slam winner in the second set to win the tournament.
This is the Spaniard’s 2nd Grand Slam title after winning the French Open in 2016. She saw off Venus’ sister, Serena, in that final.
Meanwhile, Swiss Roger Federer and Croat Marin Cilic will battle for the men’s singles title on Sunday.
