SINGLES - Muguruza S erves Up Wimbledon StunnerFor Second Slam
Garbiñe Muguruza won the last nine games to beat five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams and capture her second major title in as many years.
A year after her French Open triumph, Garbiñe Muguruza completed an emphatic fortnight with a 7-5, 6-0 win over former World No.1 Venus Williams to take home her second Grand Slam title at Wimbledon.

"I always come very motivated to the Grand Slams," Muguruza said in her post-victory press conference. "Since I lost the final here, I wanted to change that. I came thinking, 'I'm prepared, I feel good.' During the tournament and the matches, I was feeling better and better. Every match, I was increasing my level.

"I think today, I played well." Seeded No.14 but set to return to the Top 5 following Saturday's victory, Muguruza saved a pair of set points late in the opening set before running away with the match, winning the final nine games and clinching victory after 77 minutes under the Centre Court roof.

Muguruza made her first major final at the All England Club back in 2015, narrowly losing to Venus' sister and 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena, and avenged that loss less than a year later to win in Paris.

SINGLES - Federer Claims Historic Eighth Wimbledon Title
Swiss surges to Wimbledon crown without dropping a set.

Roger Federer stands alone. The Swiss achieved Wimbledon immortality on Sunday, becoming the all-time titles leader at The Championships with a resounding 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 victory over Marin Cilic.
Federer notched a record eighth crown at the All England Club, surpassing Pete Sampras for solo first place on the all-time list. The Swiss added to his unprecedented Grand Slam titles haul, lifting a 19th trophy in total and second of the year, having prevailed at the Australian Open in January.

The World No. 5 will ascend two spots to No. 3 in the Emirates ATP Rankings on Monday, capping a remarkable return to the Top 3 for the first time in nearly one year. The oldest man to win Wimbledon in the Open Era, the 35 year old added 2000 Emirates ATP Rankings points and £2,200,000 in prize money.

Tournament abbreviations

WC
= wildcard (given by the tournament to a player that could not get in on their ranking, or did not enter in time.

PR = protected ranking. This is used when a player has been out for a certain period of time due to injury (I think it's at least 6 months) and their ranking slips down to where they wouldn't get in on their current ranking.

Q = Qualifier.

A = Alternate. Used in qualifying when a player withdraws before their first match. Also used in main draw if there was no qualifying draw and the draw was full before the player withdrew.

LL = Lucky loser. A player that loses in qualifying (usually the final round unless none of the final round losers sign the lucky loser list) and gets into main draw when a main draw player withdraws before their first match.

SE = Special exempt. A player who signed into qualifying of a tournament, but was still playing in the previous week's tournament at the time the qualifying draw was done. This player can get a special exempt into the main draw the following week.
