Wimbledon Women’s Finals Update: Serena Williams Wins Historic Title
Serena Williams, in her 21st Grand Slam win, dominated over 21 year old Spanish, Garbine Muguruza.
In two sets, 6-4, 6-4, Williams showed her power and control over the Centre Court on Friday winning her sixth Wimbledon title at 33 years old.
The American beat World No. 20 with her Muguruza, who appeared to be a crowd favorite during the two sets.
Muguruza, in the opening set, took a lead at 4-2, but Williams fought back, securing the first set for herself.
“There was definitely pressure towards the end,” Williams said in an interview after the match.
“Garbine started playing really well and I just had to think to stay out there and work really hard.
“I am having so much fun out on the court. Everyday is a pleasure to be playing and winning Wimbledon.”
Muguruza was in tears during the awarding, but the fans gave a standing ovation, recognizing the young players potential. Even Williams stood and clapped for the Spaniard.
Williams awaits the US Open for her first calendar year Grand Slam, a feat which was first achieved by Steffi Graf in 1988.
