the headlines this evening: garbine muguruza is the new wimbledon champion. she wins nine games in a row to prevent venus williams a magical day for muguruza? yes, hugh, a new name etched in wimbledon history today, that of garbine muguruza. she becomes the second woman from spain win the ladies title here. her stand—in coach conchita martinez won it in 1994. she won it in real style, taking on the five—time champion venus williams. on finals weekend, centre court brings the generations together, garbine muguruza, one of the newest stars against its greatest survivor. the oldest post—war champion.
beneath the reefyﬁuterrheer- she wants to close out points quickly, but amid the aggression those flashes took williams to the brink of the first set. she had two points for the advantage, but back came muguruza, with bravery and brilliance, that would be the shot of the set. her battling saw off break points and suddenly she had the lead. how this sport can swing. that exchange would have its effect on williams. even with her experience, she gets unsettled. muguruza has grown into this tournament, now she had grown into the match. three breaks in the second set had her racing towards the title. two years ago she was denied by serena. she would not miss this chance. tears of despair a couple of years ago but overwhelming joy now. she is the champion.
venus williams says she will be back again to win more. it was the game's new star to light up centre. a first wimbledon title. the start of her own legacy. i had i think the hardest match today against venus. she is such an incredible player. i grew up watching her play so it is incredible to play the final... laughter sorry! sue barker: but she was an inspiration? definitely. i feel incredible to play her here. and you showed no sign of nerves. i think it is inside. of course i am nervous. i always dreamed to be here. i was composed, i guess. that first set was crucial, wasn't it? yes, it was very, very tough. we both had a lot of chances so i am glad i made it. what about your team 7 your coach cannot be here. do you have a message for him?
yes, well, here it is! congratulations, it is amazing. i know how hard you work. this means so know how hard you work. this means so much to you and your family. well done today. beautiful. but also, venus, well done to you because you have had a great tournament. yes, thank you. thank you to my team who have been here day in, day out. thank you to my family. i love you guys. and a message to serena? i miss you. i tried my best to do the same things you do, but i think they'll be other opportunities, i do. so venus williams says she'll be
back but it was a fantastic day for garbine muguruza. after the match we spoke to another former champion, mary pierce. it was quite something. that first set was a real battle. there was the epic long rally of 19 shots where garbine muguruza played so shots where garbine muguruza played so solid, so aggressive. i think that really turned things around for her, winning that game, going to 5—5 and winning the first set. and it seemed physically venus williams was at the same player in the second set. the first set took a lot out of her physically. very quickly, garbine muguruza took that match. but so happy for her. i think she really deserves it. she has worked ha rd to really deserves it. she has worked hard to get back to where she is 110w. hard to get back to where she is
now. garbine muguruza won the french open last year and i was so happy to see that smile on her face afterwards. and having conchita martinez in her camp as well has also given her confidence that someone also given her confidence that someone else has already done this and can give her tips. what does this victory mean to her, the second grand slam title, how big an achievement if this? i think it consolidates and concerns your position in tennis and to say, i am a champion, i am a grand slam champion now, i have done it twice. i'm here to stay and hopefully to win some more titles. garbine muguruza did not have a great year over the last 12 months. it has been ha rd over the last 12 months. it has been hard for her to adjust to a new lifestyle. so many things have changed and she has had real difficulties. there is a time it ta kes to difficulties. there is a time it takes to get used to that. she has gone through that time and now she is wimbledon champion now. having
two grand slam titles will give her a lot more confidence for the rest of the year. venus williams will be so of the year. venus williams will be so disappointed. there was so much history riding on this match. were you disappointed ?|j history riding on this match. were you disappointed? i was so proud of her. at 37 years old, and with an immune condition, to be playing so well is incredible. after everything she has been doing in her career, she has been doing in her career, she obviously enjoys playing tennis. she is obviously sad that she lost but i think she can be proud of herself because she knows she has gone out there and she has given 100% of herself and really left everything out on the court. mary pierce with david on steam. british fans would have been hoping johanna konta could make it to the final but it was not to be for her. alfie hewett and gordon reid
defended their wheelchair men's doubles title. in what was a repeat of last year's final, this years was played on a show court for the first time. the pair had to come from behind after losing the first set on a tie break to france's stephane houdet and nicolas peifer. rain stopped play for two hours. it is quite tiring and we had to restart a nd it is quite tiring and we had to restart and go again. i think we did a good job of having no regrets, playing instinctively, and that is what we did in the end. more finals today. out on centre court there is a very tight men's doubles final. oliver marach and mate pavic taking on lukasz kubot
and marcelo melo. well, focus turns to the men's final tomorrow. 14 years after winning his first grand slam title at wimbledon, roger federer stands on the verge of an historic eighth all—england club triumph and 19th grand slam title. victory over marin cilic would also make the 35—year—old the oldest man to lift the famous golden trophy. i think the record is really gave me an extra source of motivation and inspired me to train harder and inspired me to train harder and inspire me to keep doing what i am doing. the greats of the game did not play for records. i could get inspired by the fact that maybe i could break a record. now we are in the same situation again, it reminds me of may be my first wimbledon when i was trying to do that or when i was trying to defend my first wimbledon or going for my fifth wimbledon or going for my fifth wimbledon to beat bjorn borg was amazing. iam
wimbledon to beat bjorn borg was amazing. i am happy to have these moments at wimbledon. i know when i step on court against cilic, i will be ready. the occasion will not be too big to conquer, to understand what i am going through. i will be ready and i am looking forward to it. so federer are going for a slice of history tomorrow when he takes on croatia's marin cilic. the big news is garbine muguruza of spain has won the ladies title over venus williams. thank you. england have handed south africa control of the second test at trent bridge after a batting collapse on day two. after wrapping up the tourists' first innings for 335 this morning. england were bowled out for 205 in reply, losing 7 wickets for 62 runs. and south africa have extended their lead. ending the day on 75—1. adam wild has been watching. a serene scene at trent bridge. down
below, joe root and england prop leave plotting to break that. if there is one player they can rely on to create noise, it is james anderson. needing four dismissals to wrap up the south africa innings, anderson was in no mood to share them out. little over half an hour played, 335 all out. the applause well earned. now over to south africa, to plot their response. it was as swift as it was effective. alistair cook stopped before he was allowed to get started. the very next ball, keaton jennings, allowed to get started. the very next ball, keatonjennings, out. trent bridge suddenly silenced. then it was down to joe trent bridge suddenly silenced. then it was down tojoe root trent bridge suddenly silenced. then it was down to joe root to trent bridge suddenly silenced. then it was down tojoe root to get trent bridge suddenly silenced. then it was down to joe root to get the crowd on their feet. it was down to joe root to get the crowd on theirfeet. he passed it was down to joe root to get the crowd on their feet. he passed 50. it was down to joe root to get the crowd on theirfeet. he passed 50. a recovery of sorts but one that would not last. when he went for 78, england were right back
