Garbiñe Muguruza completed an emphatic fortnight at Wimbledon with a 7-5, 6-0 win over former World No.1 Venus Williams from the United States on Saturday afternoon to take home her second Grand Slam title, following her last year’s triumph at Roland Garros.

The 14th seed from Spain clinched victory in 77 minutes.

“There is always something to learn from matches you win or from the ones you don’t win,” Venus told.

“So there is definitely something for me to learn from this. But it is also about looking forward.

“I’m in good form and I’ve been in a position a few times this year to contend for the big titles.

“That’s the kind of position I want to keep putting myself in. It’s just about getting over the line. I believe I can do that.”

Muguruza told during her post-match press conference:

“I always come very motivated to the Grand Slams. Since I lost the final here, I wanted to change that. I came thinking, ‘I’m prepared, I feel good.’ During the tournament and the matches, I was feeling better and better. Every match, I was increasing my level.

“I think today, I played well.”
