Garbine Muguruza turned a close match against Venus Williams into a rout, defeating her in the Wimbledon final 7-5, 6-0 for her first victory in the championship. It's the second major for the 23-year-old Spaniard. Williams, the oldest Wimbledon finalist since 1994 at age 37, had two set points in the first set.

All the invincible stars eventually are beaten by the young, up and coming, stars of today and the next few years. If I were one of the Williams sisters I think I would have quite a couple of years ago. They've certainly had their day but their day is about over now.

WTF are you talking about Danni? Serena Williams is still at the top of her game (and will be once she returns from maternity leave) and Venus just demolished the field to get to the final at 37. [...]

[...] She's 37, were I her I'd quit while I'm still on top. Why wait until you get humiliated by younger players? I see athletes from many sports do this all the time. But hey both her and her sisters were great stars but then I remember when Chris Evert and Nadia Petrova were the top stars but everyone gets old.

Serena Williams isn't close to being over. When she took maternity leave she was No. 1 in the world and had just won the Australian Open in 2017 and Wimbledon six months earlier.

Venus Williams has been playing her best tennis since her serious health problems in 2011. She was an Australian Open finalist this year and was playing dominant tennis at Wimbledon until she faced Muguruza.

It isn't a humiliation to lose a match. Sometimes you face a better opponent.

She did give up in the second set, that was hard to watch.

The wheels came off. Don't know what happened there, but she was strong in the first set. Muguruza's a great player and has much younger legs.

" Serena Williams is still at the top of her game (and will be once she returns from maternity leave..."

What an ignorant statement.

While still dominant, Serena is no more "still at the top of her game" than Federer is at his. And given her age, the odds of her achieving that level after childbirth are slim to none.

And you have the audacity to accuse others of talking about things they know nothing about.
