Garbine Muguruza wins first Wimbledon title after beating five-time champion Venus Williams in straight sets




Garbine Muguruza won a battle of the generations by thrashing Venus Williams to secure her first Wimbledon title.
Williams, 37, was bidding to become the oldest female grand slam singles winner in the open era but Muguruza, 14 years her junior, delivered an emphatic 7-5, 6-0 victory.
It is Muguruza's second major title, adding to the French Open crown she won last year, and makes her the first Spanish woman to win the singles here since her coach Conchita Martinez in 1994.
When the 23-year-old's challenge revealed Williams' last forehand to have landed long, she crouched down in disbelief with her face planted in her hands.
Muguruza earns £2.2million for this win at the All England Club and also makes up for finishing runner-up to Venus' sister Serena in the final of two years ago.
