The finals at Wimbledon have wrapped up, with the women's final having taken place yesterday and the men's final having finished today. Garbine Muguruza defeated Venus Williams in straight sets on the women's side, while Roger Federer beating Marion Cilic.

Garbine Muguruza powers past Venus Williams

Garbine Muguruza overpowered Venus Williams and scuttled her bid at becoming the oldest Wimbledon champion by defeating her in straight sets 7-5, 6-0.

Murguruza was trailing 4-5 in the first set but then proceeded to fight off two set points at part of a nine-game run to capture her second Grand Glam and first Wimbledon title. In that stretch, she managed to break Williams served four different times. In the process, the 23-year-old has become the first player ever to defeat both Serena and Venus Williams in a Grand Slam final. This was also redemption for, as she lost in the finals two years ago at the hands of Venus's sister Serena.

She is now the second Spanish women to win Wimbledon (Conchita Martinez, 1994) and has the second most Grand Slams by a Spanish woman only behind Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario's four. Ironically enough, the 37-year-old Williams was the oldest player in the Wimbledon final since Martina Navratilova in 1994, who was defeated by Martinez in straight sets. Martinez has been coaching Muguruza over the past two weeks.

This was the first time ever that Williams, who was playing in her 20th Wimbledon, had lost a set 6-0. For the tournament, Murguruza only dropped 44 games, the least in the event.

Roger Federer breezes past Marion Cilic

Roger Federer breezed past Marion Cilic, defeating him in straight sets 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 to capture his eighth Wimbledon title and 19th overall Grand Slam. This gives him the most Wimbledon titles of all time while extending his own total grand slam record.

In the process, Federer joined Bjorn Borg (1976), as the only men in the Open Era (since 1968) to win the event without dropping a single set. This was also the second time for Federer and the 17th time in history that a man has won a Grand Slam without dropping a single set.

This was also the sixth time that Federer has won multiple Grand Slams in a single year, the most in history. At 35 years and 342 days, he is now the oldest man to win Wimbledon in the Open Era.

This season Federer is now 9-0 against top-10 players and has won two grand slams, along with three other titles (BNP Paribas Open, Miami Open, and Gerry Weber Open).
