(LONDON) — Garbine Muguruza won the first set in her bid against Venus Williams in a 7-5, 6-0 victory.
If Williams had won, she would’ve been the oldest woman in the Open era to win a Grand Slam title.
The oldest woman to win a major title is Venus’ younger sister, Serena Williams.
The last time Venus Williams won the Wimbledon title was in 2008.
