“I can’t explain with words how this day means to me,” Muguruza said after the win. “You work all your life to get here.”
It is the second time Muguruza has defeated Serena Williams at the French Open in three years, but Saturday’s victory was the sweetest yet. The win earned Muguruza the first Grand Slam title of her career.
