Garbine Mugaruza ruthless in her centre court final against 5 time champion Venus Williams. Starting off the match with many forehand errors but with errors from Williams Mugaruza served out the first set 6-4. The second set was a contrast with Williams dropping her first service game and never getting back on form. Mugaruza played the long rallys and played Williams out winning 6-0
This was the Spaniard’s first final in the 13 months since she won Roland Garros last year. She withstood an onslaught from the Venus forehand throughout the first set, and fended off two set points before snatching it herself; and with so much energy expended on that critical first set, Williams could not summon enough to be competitive in the second. With the roof closed for the first time in a ladies' singles final, the No.14 seed took it 7-5, 6-0 in one hour and 17 minutes.
