Garbine Muguruza Comes Out Victorious Over Venus Williams

Garbine Muguruza came out on top at Wimbledon, winning her second career Grand Slam title over Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0 in the Wimbledon final on Saturday. In 2015, Muguruza reached her first Grand Slam, but then fell to Venus’ sister Serena Williams in straight sets. The next year, she won her first Grand Slam title in the French Open.

Williams held a 3-1 record against Muguruza heading into the match, but unfortunately did not come out on top this time around. The match between these two women lasted for 77-minutes, and ended with Spain’s Muguruza winning her second Grand Slam.

Venus delivered a message to Serena after the match saying, “I miss you, I tried my best to do the same things you do. I think there will be other opportunities. I do.” Her sister is at home awaiting the birth of her child and could not attend the match.

Hopefully things look up for Venus in the future, because the news has not been in her favor recently.  Congrats to Ms. Williams for making it so far, and better luck next year!
