Spaniard Muguruza beats Venus, wins first Wimbledon title

London: Garbine Muguruza of Spain beat American tennis veteran Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0 in the women's singles final of Wimbledon on Saturday.

It was 23-year-old Muguruza's first Wimbledon title and second Grand Slam title -- the first was in French Open 2016., reports Efe.

Muguruza, playing in just her fourth Wimbledon, reached the final two years ago as a virtually unknown player and was beaten in straight sets by Venus' sister Serena.

"Two years ago I lost to Serena and she told me maybe one day I would win. Here I am!," said Muguruza.

"Venus is such an incredible player. I grew up watching her play so I feel incredible to be able to play her here. I was composed, I guess. I think it was very, very tough in the first set. We both had a lot of chances but I was glad that I made it."

She also became the first Spaniard to lift the women's trophy following her compatriot Conchita Martinez's win 23 years ago.

Muguruza entered the final ranked No. 15 in the world but will rise to No. 5 now.

At 37, Venus Williams, No. 11 seed, had been hoping to secure her sixth win at the All England Club and ninth Grand Slam title.

Venus said: "I'm sure it means so much to you (Muguruza) and your family, well done today -- beautiful."
