Muguruza won the toss and allowed Venus to serve.
Both women held their games until late in the 1st set.
Venus had 2 break and set points when she was up 5-4, but could not convert them. She missed an easy forehand winner on the 2nd set point opportunity.
Muguruza then broke Venus to go up 6-5. She lost her 1st of 2 break points, then was able to convert the 2nd to win the 1st set 7-5.
Venus was broken at the start and just couldn’t recover. She had nothing left in the tank after a fatal accident, overcoming young 2017 French Open Champ, Jelena Ostapenko and the Brit, Johanna Konta.
Muguruza turned into a bulldozer and rolled over her to take the 2nd set, 6-0 and her 1st Wimbledon title.
Two years ago, Serena beat Muguruza in the Wimbledon Final and told her she would win Winbledon one day. Who knew it would be versus her sister.
Muguruza has been far from consistent in Grand Slam Tournaments but she had the privilege of being coached by vet and fellow Spaniard, Conchita Martínez in the last 2 weeks and was able to play the best tennis of her life and remain composed with more experience.
She is now the only player that has beaten both Serena and Venus Williams in a Grand Slam Final.
Congratulations Garbiñe Muguruza!
