Venus Williams Defeated in Wimbledon Women's Singles Final

And the sense of history was not lost on the 23-year-old, as she added: "It's like a dream come true". "I grew up watching her play".

"It has a lot to do with the strength of your body, your style of game, but for me, it's incredible".

"I'm in good form". She has an overall singles record of 87-15 at Wimbledon. I guess (him and Martinez) is a combination.' Speaking about what if feels like to be in the first positions of the rankings and winning Major titles, Muguruza replied: 'I've been No.2 and No.3, and I felt how it is to win a Grand Slam and there is no comparison. We played a few matches together, as well.

"Everybody has their own story, I don't want to be a lookalike". "We both had a lot of chances but I was glad that I made it".

The women's doubles final eventually started after the conclusion of the men's but it proved to be far less competitive. "Hopefully, I can be doing that".

"I only play against the Williams sisters".

"I think so. She definitely has the potential and she definitely has the game", she told the BBC. "Let's not make a drama, you know".

Will Williams be able to win again?

Having lost to Serena Williams in the 2015 final, Muguruza becomes the second Spanish woman to win the Wimbledon singles title after her coach, Conchita Martinez.

Williams was making her 20th appearance at Wimbledon, the most among active players.

Spaniard Garbine Muguruza has beaten five-time champion Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0 to claim her first Wimbledon title. I'm happy to go to the Centre Court and to play the best player.

The match was back and forth throughout the first set until Muguruza broke Williams' serve at the end.

This year, Williams avoided a contest with Serena, who is taking a hiatus from the sport while pregnant.
