Muguruza defeats Venus Williams to claim her first Wimbledon title


The seven-time grand slam winner and five-time Wimbledon champion Venus William lost to Spain’s Garbine Muguruza on the day twelve at the Wimbledon Tennis Championship 2017 on Sunday at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.

Williams kept working hard for the title, in spite of fighting with Sjogren Syndrome little-known as autoimmune disorder that caused her fatigue and joint pain. However, she fell short against 23-year-old Garbine Muguruza 7-5 6-0 who claimed her first ever Wimbledon title.

The charm of Williams never faded with the loss, who graciously said –

“This is where you want to be. I like to win. I don’t want to just get to a final,”

“It’s just about playing a little better.” The 37-year-old added.

Further during her runner’s up speech she conveyed a heartfelt message to her pregnant sister Serena Williams –

“I tried my best to the same things as you, but I think there will other opportunities. I do,” she added.

The match initially looked under control of Williams, as she was up by 5-4 and 40-15 with two break points in the set. But, the charged up Muguruza rallied to win eight consecutive games, who is 14 years younger to the Grand Slam winner.  

Williams has 7 grand slam title, out of which 5 she earned at Wimbledon in 2000-01, 2005, 2007 and 2008; two at the U.S. Open in 2000-01.

Coach David Witt, offered explanation on Williams’ loss –

“It was just nerves,” Witt said.

“She never, I thought, looked like she was relaxed out there,” he added.

On the other hand, Gabrine Muguruza, after the win said, she grew up looking at Williams play!
