THE formidable Serena Williams is Wimbeldon champion for a sixth time after beating Spain’s Garbine Muguruza.

Muguruza, a 21-year-old Spanish-Venezuelan player ranked 19th in the world was beaten 6-4, 6-4 in a match that lasted one hour 23 minutes.

Although she has had success playing doubles, reaching the semifinals of the 2014 French Open with her partner Carla Suárez Navarro, she had never made it past the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam tournament playing singles.

To reach the finals, Muguruza defeated Caroline Wozniaki, Agnieszka Radwanska, Angelique Kerber and Timea Bacsinszky.

Muguruza previously defeated Williams during the 2014 French Open in the second round.

She currently lives and trains in Barcelona, after spending her childhood in Venezuela.

The last Spanish player to win Wimbledon was Conchita Martínez in 1994.
