Spain's Garbine Muguruza, 23, triumphed over American tennis champion Venus Williams, 37, in the women's singles finals at Wimbledon Saturday, securing a 7-5, 6-0 win to take her second Grand Slam title. Had the match gone the other way, Williams would have become the oldest woman to win a Grand Slam in the Open era.
Williams is "such an incredible player," Muguruza said of her rival. "I grew up watching her play, so it's incredible to play the final [against her] here. Of course I'm nervous. I've always dreamed to be here. The first set was very tough. We both had a lot of chances. [Venus' sister] Serena [Williams] told me two years ago that one day I was going to win. So here I am."
