Venus falls: Garbine Muguruza beats Williams in Wimbledon final

15 Julio 2017, 10:10 | Fidele Alvizo

In the next game, Williams successfully defended her own break point.

But she quickly relented, smiling broadly and finally giving in.

Asked who she would prefer, a smiling Muguruza said: "Oh, come on". ABC will have encore coverage of the match beginning at 3 p.m. Online streaming of the singles final will be available via WatchESPN and via the ESPN App on smartphones and other devices.

Claire Liu became the first American in 25 years to win the junior title at Wimbledon.

Perhaps even more relevant is how she has developed since beating the younger Williams sister to join Martinez as a Spanish Grand Slam winner last year.

Garbine Muguruza is coming off a straight sets win over Magdalena Rybarikova that took 14 games to decide. After breaking in the second set, she kept Williams away from the net and controlled the flow in dominant fashion.

She and her family moved to Spain in 1999 when she was six, and the following summer Williams won the first of her five titles at the All England Club. She has also reached the final at Wimbledon against the backdrop of being involved in a fatal road accident back in Florida before the tournament began.

For Muguruza, it was her second Grand Slam title. She makes it 2-0 in the second set. Venus has won 11 of her last 12 matches on grass court.

The 35-year-old professional tennis player is expecting her first baby with her fiancé Alexis Ohanian, and the mother-to-be believes she is "really fortunate" to be enjoying a "really good" pregnancy and so far she has not wanted to eat anything out of the ordinary.

"Serena's always in my corner and, you know, usually it's her in these finals, so I'm trying my best to represent Williams as best as I can", she said according to the outlet.

Muguruza broke serve on a second break point in the 11th game when Williams sailed a forehand long, and from that point on Muguruza was in complete charge of the match.

Muguruza has also won a Grand Slam title, but just one - taking home the win on the clay of Roland Garros, the French Open.

Williams was making her 20th appearance at Wimbledon, the most among active players. A bold 20-year-old, Jelena Ostapenko, who was outside the top 40 memorial and is now inside the top ten.
