Garbine Muguruza: 'Wimbledon final a dream come true'

Wimbledon runner-up Garbine Muguruza describes reaching her first Grand Slam final as "a dream come true".

Wimbledon runner-up Garbine Muguruza has described her progress to the final of the tournament as "a dream come true".

The 21-year-old put up a good fight against Serena Williams on Centre Court but could not stop the rampant American from claiming a 6-4 6-4 win to clinch the title for a sixth time.

Muguruza told BBC Sport: "I enjoyed it a lot. I mean, I cannot talk. I don't have words to say how I feel. I'm very proud and happy to be here. In Spain we don't have that much grass but I'm going to change things.

"A Grand Slam final for me is a dream come true and I also want to say congratulations to Serena, showing that she's world number one."

Muguruza previously beat Williams at the 2014 French Open.
