Garbine Muruguza romped to a straight set win over 5-time Wimbeldon Champion, Venus Williams, here on Centre Court.
The duo were exchanging blow for blow in the first set and it rightly went into a tie-break, with Muruguza coming through, but the second set was a humdinger.
Muruguza played some immaculate tennis, aided by Williams’ horror show to dish out a bagel in the Wimbledon Ladies’ final.
This is Muruguza’s 2nd grand slam win, after she won the French Open last year. She also became the second Spanish woman to win the Wimbledon title.
In 2015 Muruguza had lost out on the opportunity to win her maiden Grand Slam title as she came up against a superior Serena Williams on that day. But against the elder Williams, Muruguza had no intention of losing out, as she played with great intensity all through, focussed on the job at hand.
This is how Twitter reacted to Muruguza’s brilliant win:

Venus teaching us grace and class over and over. We aren't worthy but we'll try.

Incredible cheers in Centre Court for Venus…all day, but especially in defeat. The respect for her here only grows. #Wimbledon

Half of Garbiñe Muguruza's 4 career titles are slams. No open era player has ever won so few titles at the time of their 2nd slam. Madness.
