However, Muguruza dug deep and pulled out the game and the set.

"When I had those set points against me, I'm like, 'Hey, it's normal".

In 2015, in her first Grand Slam final, Muguruza lost to Williams' younger sister, Serena, whom the Spaniard then defeated in the French Open title match past year.

Garbiñe Muguruza already knew what it's like to lose to a Williams in the Wimbledon final.

The poise and grace that Venus Williams possesses after a second set that yielded no joy says much about the champion she is. "So I just have more information about the situation". "Well done today. handsome".

That's why, right now, Williams is just enjoying time at home with her family and reflecting on all the things her body has helped her accomplish in order to get to this peaceful point. Muguruza, who grew up watching Venus play in Wimbledon, dropped to her knees on the court to celebrate. I've always dreamed to be here.

"The first set was tough". I knew she was going to make me suffer and fight for it. The last time she appeared in the Wimbledon final was eight years ago when she lost to Serena. "So here I am".

On her way to the final, Muguruza took down top seed Angelique Kerber and seventh seed Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Martinez, who won Wimbledon back in 1994, also defeated a 37-year-old en route to victory by besting tennis legend Martina Navratilova.

In June, Williams was involved in a fatal auto accident in Florida. Remarkably, of her four tour-level titles, two are now Grand Slams.

The man, who was not identified, left his phone in his vehicle, she said. Eventually, police had to kick down the door to get the contractor out.

Nobody had suggested otherwise. Though innocent in the tragic incident, Williams struggled through tears when asked to recall the accident during a second-round press conference and was clearly suffering with the weight of its undeniable reality. "Then last summer she won the French and we all thought she was going to carry on and the torch was going to be handed over to her".

'I don't know, I was so excited to go out there and win, especially over somebody like a role model. Venus went on to win seven Grand Slam titles, while her sister became arguably the most celebrated player of all time with a record 23 major titles.

Muguruza had not made it to the final of any tournament since winning Roland Garros and this was just her fourth career title, two of them grand slams.

Having been diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome, an illness that causes fatigue and joint pain, in 2011 and seen her ranking plummet to 103, her renaissance this year is still hugely impressive. "She just dug in there and managed to play better".

Fear not, America - there is still reason to cheer at Wimbledon!

Muguruza won her first title at the All England Club, and Federer will play for his eighth on Sunday against Marin Cilic.

"One of my best friends, Taylor Johnson, her mentor is Billie Jean King".

But she meant no disrespect in highlighting the age gap - quite the opposite.

The strongest initial sign of a renaissance for Williams came during a run to the Wimbledon semifinals a year ago.
