Fourteenth seed Garbine Muguruza upset Venus Williams in a lopsided Wimbledon Final today, winning 7-5, 6-0 to capture her second Grand Slam title. Here’s some interesting trivia:


Muruguza fought off two set points before finally taking a competitive first set. Some combination of momentum and Williams completely collapsing—Venus finished the match with 25 unforced errors—turned the second set into a dreary, somber march. ESPN says this was the first time in Williams’s Wimbledon career that she’d ever lost a set 6-0, and it made for a shocking, anticlimactic final.
