Spain’s Garbine Muguruza lifted her first Wimbledon womens singles title after stunned the five-times winner Venus Williams from the United States in straight sets on Saturday to clinch her second Grand Slam crown.

The 23-year-old Spaniard saved two set points at 4-5 in the first set and then confidently won nine games in a row to clinch her second major singles title.

Speaking moments after winning the Wimbledon 2017 title Muguruza said “It’s not easy. It’s very good when you win it, and it’s hard after when you come back and you know you have to defend”. She also added “Two years ago, I lost in the finals against Serena, and she told me one day I was going to maybe win. Two years after, here I am”.

She won her first Grand Slam last year when, she beat Serena Williams in straight sets in the final of the French Open 2016.
