WIMBLEDON, England — Undoubtedly, Garbine Muguruza was mostly in the market for her own slice of tennis history in the Wimbledon final on Saturday.
But when the 23-year-old Spaniard picked up her second career Grand Slam title, courtesy of a scorching 7-5, 6-0 defeat of Venus Williams, she actually altered the Williams sisters’ historical perspective as well.
The 14th-seeded Muguruza, as it turns out, is the only player to earn a Grand Slam title at the expense of both siblings. She won her first major at the 2016 French Open, upending defending champion Serena 7-5, 6-4 for the title.
And now she has scored the Wimbledon trophy over Venus, confidently winning the final nine games of the 77-minute match.
