Garbine Muguruza displayed some extra-ordinary power play to capture her first Wimbledon title defeating Venus Williams in straight sets 7-5, 6-0.

With this, she shattered Venus Williams’ history bid to become the oldest player to win the title.

Muguruza took just 77 minutes to overwhelm Williams and become only the second Spanish woman to win Wimbledon.

It was Muguruza’s current coach Conchita Martinez who was the first woman to raise the Spanish flag at Wimbledon in 1994 when she defeated Martina Navratilova.

Watched from the Royal Box by King Juan Carlos of Spain, the 23-year-old was all smiles as she finally got her hands on the Venus Rosewater Dish two years after losing to the Venus Williams’ sister Serena in her maiden Wimbledon final.
