Result: Dominant Muguruza beats Venus Williams to lift first Wimbledon title

And if you wish to enjoy the elaborately choreographed battle scenes on a bigger screen, you can make use of Google Chromecast or Apple TV to stream the episodes on your Smart TV - that too ad-free! But sometimes, like with Venus Williams in Saturday's Wimbledon final, the nerves last way too long-or never go away at all. She comes here with little momentum and wins seven matches. "I guess (him and Martinez) is a combination". Williams dropped only six games. And it was her experience that proved critical.

Muguruza had spoken eloquently this week of etching her name onto the Wimbledon honours board alongside Venus, Serena and the other All England Club icons.

Williams had been trying to win her sixth Wimbledon title. Judging by her all-white tennis outfit and the green grass court, we'd wager that the photograph in question depicts one of Williams's previous Wimbledon appearances.

"Here it is", she said. She had struggled, as many young players do, to maintain expectations after those breakthrough Major runs. A 6-0 final set is not acceptable.

Federer will bid to become the first man to win eight Wimbledon men's singles titles, when he takes on Cilic. Soon, Venus Williams found her rhythm with immensely strong second service which gave Garbine no chance at all for the break. I'm playing Venus here.' So I just kept fighting. You tend, if you are this sort of observer, to talk about "inconsistency".

And Muguruza is hoping to see the 35-year-old Federer come out triumphant so she can see his moves on the dancefloor.

For Berdych, this was another case of so near and yet so far at the big events.

"It's very hard to find a recipe to feel good fitness-wise, tennis-wise, mentally. You say, 'Oh, maybe I'll win.' I was just very composed".

"People were surprised when I said in the French Open that I (wanted) Serena in the final".

Williams began with an ace and held with a backhand winner: A statement of intent.

In 2012 she scored her first win against a top-10 player (Vera Zvonareva) in Miami in her second WTA main draw match. But Muguruza stood her ground and stayed on level terms, 3-3.

Fittingly, it was Muguruza's current coach Conchita Martinez who was the first woman to raise the Spanish flag at Wimbledon in 1994 when she defeated Martina Navratilova.

Let's make sure that we give full credit to Muguruza.

Williams unraveled from the start of the second set, losing on her serve to get into an 0-1 hole against Muguruza. She went for her shots with extra vigour, now overpowering Williams, and the American buckled under the pressure, double faulting on a second break point. I think there will be other opportunities. Both women came to it playing superbly. But she competed really well.

The turning point came at Wimbledon last year when she it made it to the semifinals.

From then on, the match changed. I'm looking forward to the rest of the summer. A suspended white shag chair is immediately behind her, as is what appears to be a large inflatable pineapple pool floaty.
