Garbine Muguruza has won her second Grand Slam and her first Wimbledon title.

The 23-year-old Spaniard topped 37-year-old Venus Williams with a forceful performance in the final on Saturday, running away with the second set after gutting out a taut first, and clinching a 7-5, 6-0 victory with a Hawk-Eye review that confirmed Venus had sent a forehand just long.

Muguruza, who hadn’t played in any tournament final since winning her first major at the French Open 13 months
