Spanish-Venezuelan professional tennis player Garbine Muguruza on Saturday became the second Spaniard after Conchita Martinez to clinch the Wimbledon's title when she defeated seven-time Grand Slam Champion Venus Williams in straight sets to clinch her maiden Wimbledon title.

The 14th-seeded Spaniard defeated Williams 7-5, 6-0 in what eventually turned out to be a one-sided contest lasting one hour and 23 minutes on the Centre court.

After a hard-fought opening set lasting almost an hour, Muguruza needed just another 23 minutes to wrap her first Wimbledon title.

The 23-year-old was overpowered by Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final in 2015 but against Venus, she brought her power game and increased the tempo and ferocity of her ground-strokes to stamp her authority on the match.

"Two years ago I lost to Serena and she told me maybe one day I would win. Here I am!" said Muguruza after the match.

"I'm sure it means so much to you [Muguruza] and your family, well done today - beautiful," said Venus after the match.

Here is how Tennis fraternity reacted on Twitter:
