Garbine Muguruza crushed 37-year-old Venus Williams' hope of winning a sixth title at Wimbledon with a 7-5, 6-0 win.

Garbine Muguruza became the first player to beat Venus and Serena Williams in the final of Grand Slam events.

Venus Williams and Roger Federer have proved this week that they still have plenty of good tennis left to play as each reached yet another Wimbledon final.

The London schoolgirl said: "After my Dad was diagnosed, I think Katy, my sister, was struggling a bit expressing when she was sad or needed someone to talk to".

The match ended under the lights on Centre Court, with Kubot and Melo wrapping up the win two games after the roof was closed and the lights switched on to combat the fading light.

While Lasseter will no longer be directing, he will, however, remain attached to produce the project. All the actresses who originally voiced the princesses (and are still living) reprised their roles.

Owing to the fact Cilic has played more full sets in the tournament already-the Croat has played 21 to Federer's 16-it wouldn't be a shock to see the Swiss chase a swifter victory to get the win wrapped up early on. The Venus train which had railroaded British No.1 Jo Konta in the semi-finals, had been derailed. "She just shows this toughness", Muguruza said.

The seven-time Grand Slam victor, who had looked in imperious form up until losing those two set points, had no answer.

"I was close. I didn't want to lose this time, because I know the difference". "She just dug in there". It took one last blizzard of thunderous winners to ensure her dream would come true. When I walk onto court, I think I'll be a mix of nervous and excited. But if you look at the clusters of titles among the best players, they all come during their 20s.

Muguruza saved three break points, which included two tension-filled set points in the 10th game, the first of which saw the Spaniard emerge with a clenched fist from an epic 19-shot rally.

Yet two years on, she stands with that same dish in her hands and admitted that making that final two years ago was the turning point for her, where the green stuff is concerned.

Two Dead In Skydiving Incident South-West Of Sydney
Sydney Skydivers has a "dropzone" in Picton very close to where they landed, and about 90km from Sydney itself. Police said the two men - one aged in his 60s and the other in his 20s - were found dead at the scene.

"I think she played unbelievable".

Fourteen years Venus' junior, Muguruza played with a superior level of freshness, power and poise. I've had a great two weeks. "So credit to her", Williams said. Muguruza staved off the set points, locked in, ran off nine (!) straight games. I know how hard you work.

Martinez, the 1994 Wimbledon champion, stepped in a week before the tournament in the absence of Muguruza's fulltime coach, Sam Sumyk, who was home for the birth of his child. I feel like that's where I want to be, that's what I practice for. Her sister Serena, last year's Wimbledon champ, owns that distinction courtesy of the most recent Australian Open, which she won at the tender age 35 years and 125 days. "I don't know if I will be like this @ her age". It took me a while actually to calm down, to say, Hey, it's grass, you have to adapt to the surface. It's just about getting over the line.

"I just wanna win, no matter who is in front of me", she later said in a TV interview. "I believe I can do that".
