Result: Dominant Garbine Muguruza beats Venus Williams to lift first Wimbledon title

Garbine Muguruza beats Venus Williams in straight sets to claim her first Wimbledon title.

Garbine Muguruza has defeated Venus Williams in straight sets to claim her first Wimbledon title.

After a close first set, the Spaniard made light work of her American opponent to clinch the title 7-5 6-0.

Both players set up three break points during the hard-fought opener, but only Muguruza was able to convert, scoring a crucial break with the scoreline at 5-5 and going on to serve out the set.

Williams was obliterated in the second set, with the 2015 runner-up breaking her serve at the first time of asking, and again to make it 3-0, as the match became one-sided.

Leading the second set 5-0, Muguruza set up three championship points but made hard work of collecting the trophy, squandering two of them before challenging the umpire's 'in' call on a shot Williams had hit long.

Hawkeye revealed that the shot was indeed out, crowning Muguruza as the 2017 Wimbledon champion for the women's singles category as a result.
