CRI在线收听:Serena Williams Beats Garbine Muguruza to Win Her Sixth Wimbledon Title

The World Number One didn't manage to put her best feet forward in the start, losing 3 games in a row in ten minutes. But she soon found her usual self and turned the game around in the middle of the first set.

However, her 21-year old opponent would not easily give up. One set behind and into the latter half the second set, she managed to up her game and saved 3 set points to extend the match a little longer. The resilient Spaniard also fought through two championship points against the empowering Williams. But, it was just not to be.

Two years after she was crowned queen of Wimbledon, Serena Williams holds the trophy once again.

"It feels so good. It's been a while and you really appreciate holding it. I have to give thank God watching over me for the day, I really relied on his strength. Garbine, she played so well, I didn't even know it was over cause she was still fighting so hard in the end and I was like OK do I have to serve again? So congratulations, don't be sad, you'll be holding this trophy very very soon, believe me. You have great chance."

Missing her first grand slam title, Garbine Muguruza, the Spanish star player was reduced to tears but saw the whole center court standing up in applause for the extraordinary performance on her part.

"I love to play in big courts. I mean a grand slam final for me is a dream come true. And I also want to congratulate Serena, she's still showing us that she is the World Number One."

The Wimbledon win also saw the 33-year-old American completing the second "Serena Slam" of her career and becoming the oldest female winner of a major in Open era.

"I just never dreamt I will be out here still and let alone winning and having so much fun so every day is a pleasure and a joy for me to be out here playing. And winning Wimbledon, oh my gosh!"

Looking forward to the US Open next month, a victory in New York will see Williams complete her first calendar grand slam and take over German legend Steffi Graf in second place in the all-time record for major titles.
