Liu wins all-American junior final at Wimbledon — The Latest

Venus Williams Konta Wimbledon

Williams was looking for her sixth Wimbledon title - and eighth Grand Slam trophy - in the final.

Garbine Muguruza stormed to her first Wimbledon title and shattered Venus Williams' history bid with a majestic 7-5, 6-0 victory in today's final.

She broke twice more and sealed the title after a successful Hawkeye challenge of a Williams forehand that fell just beyond the baseline.

The final point was anticlimactic, with the replay system showing that a Williams shot on match point - initially called in - was in fact long.

Did that mean winning the title without Sumyk had given Muguruza extra confidence? I just hope that what happened out there won't have a detrimental effect on her at future tournaments.

"I grew up watching her play, so it was incredible" to play her in the Wimbledon final, Muguruza said.

"There's always something to learn from matches that you win and the ones that you don't win".

"I was just very composed", the 23-year-old Muguruza said.

Muguruza had reached this final with the help of her play at the net - she won 18 of the 24 points in which she approached the net in the semifinal. Her forehand went missing in the early stages, but her backhand was excellent throughout.

She said: "I've been in a position a lot of times this year to contend for big titles". But Venus had dropped from among the true elite of the game. "I'm the same player", she said. She leads the second set 4-0. I came thinking, I'm prepared, I feel good. You tend, if you are this sort of observer, to talk about "inconsistency".

She continued: 'Roger. And I like Cilic, I have to say seriously. For a 37-year-old, it was hard to see a better chance.

A loss for the duo could potentially see them slip away back into the wasteland of Grand Slam tennis that they have previously occupied in the twilight of their careers.

The final was a tense and edgy start, under the closed roof, with the first seven games taking almost half an hour. It's 40-30. Can she take fourth game to make it 4-2 in the opening set? Apart from Game of Thrones, Indian viewers can now easily and reliably access other critically acclaimed shows such as Silicon Valley, Prison Break, Homeland, Big Little Lies and many more. Muguruza opened with a double fault, but twice pounded to the net to finish points.

The 14th seed dug in for both those rallies, which proved the turning point. But Muguruza stood her ground and stayed on level terms, 3-3.

"Once you step on the court you see the crowd, you see the final, you see I'm here playing another Wimbledon final". "I tried my best to do the things you do - but I think there will be other opportunities". It became a remarkable display of sustained power and placement, combined with strong serving and even better returning.

Meanwhile, Williams has no reason to hang her head.

"I think she played amazing". Still, Muguruza was asked her preference for a dance partner at this year's champions' dinner.

"Pretty much just win the match, yeah", Williams said. "We're going to do this.' It's meant to be". That's where I play good.
