LONDON — Shortly after beating Venus Williams in the Wimbledon final, Garbine Muguruza was given a purple-and-gold circular badge signifying that she is a member of the All England Club, an honorary status accorded to tournament champions.

Muguruza noted that after losing in the 2015 Wimbledon final to Williams' sister, Serena, she didn't get the same treatment, of course: Runners-up don't get the membership or its privileges.

This 7-5, 6-0 victory over Venus, combined with Muguruza's win against Serena in last year's French Open final, made the 23-year-old Spaniard the only woman to defeat each Williams sister in a Grand Slam title match.

Saturday's final against the older Williams was Muguruza's first since the 2016 French Open.

“Hopefully she can stay a little bit more steady,” said Conchita Martinez, the Spanish Fed Cup and Davis Cup captain who worked with Muguruza during Wimbledon because her regular coach, Sam Sumyk, took time off for the birth of his child.
