Garbine Muguruza's flashes of brilliance should start occurring more frequently — Wimbledon

It was all very satisfying. Definitely I'm in good form.

Williams began the proceedings with an ace. "I believe I can do that". Williams was unable to take advantage of early chances against Spain's Muguruza - who only grew more accurate and confident as the match progressed.

"I'm always hanging around", Martinez said.

Muguruza did not reach a final anywhere between last year's French Open and this year's Wimbledon, but hopes her reaction to success will be better this time.

There were some parallels in their Wimbledon wins.

Garbine Muguruza overpowered Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0 in the Wimbledon final on Saturday to capture her second Grand Slam title.

"But that's a good problem to have". I do, ' said Venus.

Since the tears fell that day, Garbiñe Muguruza has reached two further grand slam deciders and won them both.

She came close to achieving that, but Muguruza would not allow it.

It was as if getting out of that jam freed up Muguruza - and failing to capitalize on the opportunity deflated Williams. A return to the top-10 in the rankings is now assured and as the hard courts beckon, Venus has an unmistakable spring in her step.

'If you don't know now my preparation is mostly on point, I guess you never will'.

But she meant no disrespect in highlighting the age gap - quite the opposite.

"Roger", Muguruza said with a smile and giggle. She only needed one when Williams dumped a backhand into the net to give Muguruza the opening set. "Everyone's at different places in the world, from different countries with different teams". "And to focus in every tournament you play is important". It appeared that she was having a practice session with Williams during the second and deciding set.

He beat Croatian Marin Cilic in straight sets, in an emotional final.

Facing an opponent seeking her sixth Wimbledon singles title, Muguruza demonstrated admirable mastery of the grass-court game. They play the longest rally of the match yet.

Perhaps Muguruza put it best in her own postmatch press conference. "After a year she has won another Grand Slam".

"We cannot reduce our sport to four tournaments per year", Rafael Nadal argued after he captured his 15th Grand Slam trophy in Paris last month.

At 6-5 Muguruza created two set points of her own with the shot of the match, hitting a superb defensive lob which hit the baseline and flew beyond Williams' reach.

She says she is sensible about investing her money in the knowledge that a tennis career could be cut short at any moment.

The roof over Centre Court is closed for the women's final at Wimbledon.

The win moves Federer past Pete Sampras and William Renshaw, who each won seven Wimbledon titles for the most in men's history of the event first held in 1877. That's the kind of position I want to keep putting myself in. She was 35 when she won this year's Australian Open.
