Garbine Muguruza's win over Venus Williams top stats — Wimbledon

Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic

The Spaniard earned her first Grand Slam at Roland Garros, beating Serena Williams in the final, but then meekly capitulated at Wimbledon to Jana Cepelova in the second round, also experiencing early elimination at the Rio Olympics and the US Open. She was born in Venezuela but moved to Spain when she was six and has dual nationality, but chose to play for Spain in tennis. "I grew up watching her play - sorry", she added, to the watching Williams.

"So to be able to go out there and have another chance against a historical player like Venus is a great, great achievement". She was playing in her ninth Wimbledon singles final, winning in 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2008. "Well done today, beautiful", Williams said. Williams made it to the semi-finals of the Australian Open in 2001. "Congratulations Garbine, amazing. I know how hard you work and I'm sure this means so much to you and your family". It's just about getting over the line.

"I think it was the first six forehands that she hit, they practically hit the back fence, she just hadn't settled down at all".


The Times reports that Muguruza served 6-5 in the second game and went on to win the final nine games.

Accepting the trophy, Muguruza unwittingly drew attention to the 14-year age gap between the two players.

It would have worked as a lovely parody of those internet memes insisting that you'll never guess what so-and-so looks like now. The 23-year-old Muguruza played for the title in 2015, losing to Venus' little sister, Serena Williams.


"We play both the finals here already", Kerber said. I'm looking forward to the rest of the summer.

It was Venus Williams who publicly led the charge for equal pay at Wimbledon in 2005, winning the cause two years later. "A final is a final", Muguruza said.

Muguruza joins six other women with two Slams this decade, all tied for second behind Serena's 12.
