London [UK]: Garbine Muguruza of Spain on Saturday came out with spectacular performance as she defeated seven-time Grand Slam Champion Venus Williams in straight sets to clinch her maiden Wimbledon title.
 
The 14th-seeded Spaniard defeated Williams 7-5, 6-0 in what eventually turned out to be a one-sided contest lasting one hour and 23 minutes on the Centre court.
 
After a hard-fought opening set lasting almost an hour, Muguruza needed just another 23 minutes to wrap her first Wimbledon title.
 
The 23-year-old was overpowered by Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final in 2015 but against Venus, she brought her power game and increased the tempo and ferocity of her ground-strokes to stamp her authority on the match.
 
Muguruza became the second Spaniard after Conchita Martinez to clinch the Wimbledon's title.
 
"Two years ago I lost to Serena and she told me maybe one day I would win. Here I am!" said Muguruza after the match.
 
"I'm sure it means so much to you [Muguruza] and your family, well done today - beautiful," said Venus after the match.
 
On her way to the final, Muguruza took down top seed Angelique Kerber and seventh seed Svetlana Kuznetsova.
 
In the semifinals, she defeated Magdalena Rybarikova to set up the summit clash against the seven-time Grand Slam Champion.
 
37-year-old Venus had already set the record as she became the oldest player to reach Wimbledon final for 23 years after she crushed Britain's Johanna Konta 6-4, 6-2 in a one-sided semi-final clash.
