23-year-old Spaniard Garbine Muguruza overcame the challenge of 37 year old American fan favourite Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0 in a lopsided final to claim her first ever Wimbledon title.

Muguruza, a runner-up to Serena Williams at Wimbledon a couple of years ago, showed that she had learnt plenty from her previous big day outing at SW19 to win the big points towards the business end of the first set before running away with the second as Venus faded badly.


Federer recovers from sluggish start to ease into Round 3 at Wimbledon

Seven-time champion Roger Federer eased into the third round at Wimbledon with a straight sets victory over Serbia's Dusan Lajovic. Federer, who turns 36 next month, won 7-6 (0), 6-3, 6-2 on Thursday at Centre Court in the evening light of Day Four.

Lajovic, ranked 79th in the world, broke Federer first to take a 2-0 lead. But Federer broke back soon and the pair then headed to the tie-break, which Federer dominated 7-0. He kept up that pressure in the second set, bullying the 27-year-old and eventually breaking him to take a 3-1 lead. The 18-time Grand Slam champion did not look back and took the win easily.

Cibulkova, Azarenka battle into Wimbledon's third round

Wimbledon Round-up: Wozniacki, Radwanska and Pliskova advance

Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark cruised into the women's singles second round at the Wimbledon tennis tournament after defeating Hungarian Timea Babos 6-4, 4-6, 6-1. The fifth seeded Wozniacki needed one hour and 42 minutes to get rid of the 24-year-old Babos on Tuesday. In the men's singles category, Spain's David Ferrer advanced to the second round after beating Richard Gasquet.

Wozniacki, former world no. 1, broke her rival's serve twice to seal the first set, but one break was all Babos needed to push the match to a third set. However, Babos did not win with any of her serve games in the third set as she managed to clinch just one game from a break.
