With the Wimbledon Women’s Championship coming to a historic end, the Spaniard, Garbine Muguruza has been crowned the new champ.
Garbine Muguruza took on the American tennis veteran, Venus Williams who was playing for her 6th Wimbledon title this time.
The match started off with the American national, taking on the World No. 14 by a storm and had a chance to take the first set when she missed the chance of breaking Muguruza’s serve twice when the American was leading 5-4. But soon after her miss, Muguruza took the heat and played some long rallies with a critical 20 shot rally lasting for almost 26 seconds.
Muguruza took the set to a tie-breaker and forced a break at the end and won the set 7-6 in almost 51 minutes.
And as if the 51 minutes were too much for the Spanish giant, she devastated Williams with her powerful baseline and occasional net plays to thump the 5 time champion 6-0 in a shocking final set.
The fact that Muguruza won 6-0 in the final set was nothing but a shocker and seeing Williams degrading her play in the last 9 games was even more dismaying.
With this win Muguruza climbs up to the 5th spot in the WTA rankings chart. Muguruza has notably won her first two titles of her career on a high note with both coming from Grand Slam wins. She won her first at French Open 2016 which was followed by her tantalising win at Wimbledon.
Muguruza after the match thanked her team, family and fans for their immense support. She even acknowledged the fact that her contrary was nothing but simply an outstanding player at this age who still has the greed to win the title.
“I always come very motivated to the Grand Slams. Since I lost the final here, I wanted to change that.
“Is very hard to find, like, a recipe to feel good fitness-wise, tennistically, mentally. I think in this tournament I put everything together, which is very hard. Normally, you’re tired, I feel pain here, and my confidence is not there. So I felt this tournament I find somehow to put everything together and perform well at every level.”
It was great to see the Spaniard grab her first Wimbledon title in style. Congratulations Muguruza!
