Wimbledon: Garbiñe Muguruza Defeats Venus Williams

"Nobody knows what it's going to feel like and nobody knows when it is going to happen and when it does, it's your time".

Williams has always worked to the motto 'if you're hurt you don't play and if you play you're not hurt'. I just want to go out there in the Grand Slams and play well, and hopefully end with the trophy.

Her autoimmune disease Sjogren's seemed the most obvious reason her energy levels sapped allowing Muguruza to inflict the first 6-0 scoreline on the 37-year-old in her 20-year Wimbledon history. Retirement hurts, we can gather that much.

Saturday's rout of their Taiwan-Romanian rivals, playing just their second event together, was only the second time a women's doubles final at Wimbledon had been decided by a double-bagel scoreline.

"Don't be sad. You'll be holding this trophy very, very soon; believe me", said Serena.

"People think that when you win it's so easy, but it's not easy to handle it", she said. Go too early, and you're left with might-have-beens.

Looking relaxed as she talked in a small room in the media centre at the All England Club, Muguruza was already wearing her badge as a new member.

Taking advantage of a huge, guaranteed TV audience, the BBC has announced that Doctor Who's 13th Doctor will be unveiled following coverage of the men's final. She fought off the first of the two set points at 4-5, 15-40 by winning a 20-stroke baseline rally, an exchange in which one of her forehands struck the net cord before landing deep in Williams' half of the court.

Those fans who opted for Rafa Nadal's fourth round match with Gilles Muller were at least treated to a genuine upset with the Spaniard beaten by the inspired journeyman from Luxembourg in a five-set classic. Federer downplayed the achievement after he beat Raonic. She was very open and very positive throughout the whole tournament.

"It feels really great".

Federer is the oldest member of the oldest group of Wimbledon semifinalists since Open Era records began in 1968. Tennis, like any other individual sport, is both physically and mentally demanding.

Serena defeated Muguruza to win the 2015 Wimbledon final and the American turned to her teary 21-year-old Spanish opponent with a knowing smile. Novak Djokovic could yet be one.
