Garbine Muguruza beat Serena Williams 7-5 6-4 in the French Open women’s singles final to lift her maiden Grand Slam title on Saturday.
“I’m so excited playing a final of a Grand Slam against one of the best players,” said Muguruza after lifting the title.
“Serena is a very powerful player, and I tried to fight as much as I can. All the matches I play against her help, that’s for sure”, she added.
It was 22-year-old Muguruza’s first Grand Slam success and keeps Williams waiting on 21 Grand Slams since she lifted Wimbledon last summer.
