Garbine Muguruza couldn’t help but be overwhelmed with emotion after clinching her first Wimbledon title and broke down in tears after securing a crushing win.
The Spaniard was in terrific form as she battled past Venus Williams in a tight first set before blowing her away in the second.
Muguruza reeled off nine games in a row after saving set points at 4-5 down in the opener but stepped up in magnificent fashion to stop Williams becoming the oldest female Wimbledon champion in the Open Era.
After a dramatic Hawkeye decision on the final point, Muguruza fell to the turf with delight as she won her second Grand Slam champion.
The 23-year-old was a runner-up in her first final of a major but lifted the French Open title in 2016 to win her first Grand Slam.
And she returned to the spot where she lost her first Slam final to Venus’ sister Serena to avenge that defeat and secure a fantastic win.
