Venus Williams loses Wimbledon final to Garbine Muguruza

Spanish player, Garbine Muguruza won a battle of the generations by thrashing Venus Williams 7-5 6-0 to secure her first Wimbledon title.

Williams, 37, a five-time champion who had been trying to become the oldest winner of a major in the Open era, had squandered two set points at 5-4 in the first set.
After Williams lost a 19-shot rally on the second set point, the Spaniard ran away with the match as the American struggled to find her range.

Muguruza's triumph comes two years after she lost to Venus's younger sister, Serena, in her maiden grand slam finals at the All England Club.

It is the 23-year-old's second major title, adding to the French Open crown she won last year, and makes her the first Spanish woman to win the Wimbledon since her coach Conchita Martinez in 1994.
