Garbine Muguruza launched herself to stardom as she beat the 37-year old Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0. Magnificent shots and impeccable focus brought the Spaniard her second grand slam title. Also, she became the first Spanish woman to clinch the Wimbledon title since Conchita Martinez in 1994. We've seen two entirely different sets. In the first, there was a real battle between two fierce ladies. It was a set worthy of the Wimbledon final. And then a complete fiasco of Venus Williams in the second set. Having said that, we can't help ourselves but wonder what was really going on in the match. So without further ado, let's break down each set.

The first set

Both ladies had a slow start in the first set. They were obviously nervous which comes as no surprise given the fact that the stakes were high. Soon, Venus Williams found her rhythm with immensely strong second service which gave Garbine no chance at all for the break. On the other hand, Muguruza was slowly getting over the initial nervousness with a couple of magnificent shots. The seventh game brought the first break point for the Spaniard when Venus made 3 double faults but was eventually able to pull through. Then, both players were strong on the serve and before long Venus Williams was leading 5-4 and Muguruza served to stay in the set. At this stage of the match, we witnessed some amazing tennis and who would have thought that previous game was the last one that Venus won.

In the next game, Muguruza showed the signs of nervousness again. She made a couple of forehand errors which eventually brought Venus two set points. The first set point brought the brutal exchange from the baseline and the forehand in the net from Venus. Muguruza eventually fights her way to 5-5. In the next game, both players were struggling on the forehand side, which resulted in the break which brought the Spaniard the chance to serve for the set.

Garbine Muguruza was too strong to let another break point and after 52 minutes of brilliant tennis, she took the first set.

The fall of Venus Williams

The beginning of the second set brought the brutal rhythm and magnificent shots from both players.

That made us think that they would pick up right where they left off in the first set. Unfortunately for Venus, this wasn't the case as she made a double fault for the unexpected break for Muguruza. Everything was on Garbine's side. She was leading one set to love and had a break point. But who would have thought that the rest of the set would be a brutal dominance of the Spaniard? And when Muguruza broke again in the third game as Venus Williams showed a significant drop in speed we kind of knew that match would soon be over. And it wasn't long before Garbine Muguruza was serving for the match. Soon the Spaniard had three match points, and the third one meant the end of the match. Garbine Muguruza was down on her knees with tears in her eyes.
