After Muguruza won 7-5, 6-0 in the match, and prevented Venus from becoming the oldest woman in the Open era to win a Grand Slam title, Muguruza shared her admiration for the tennis legend.

“When I was a little girl, I was watching these finals… I was watching Venus—I know it sounds incredible. To be able to play against her and now hold the big trophy, it means a lot… I only play against the Williams sisters. It’s incredible… I like it. It’s the best final you can get—Serena or Venus. And to play [Venus] here … she has won five times, she’s an expert.”

Muguruza is the first to beat both Williams’s sisters in Grand Slam finals.
