FOR the first time in 19 years a Spanish woman will be playing in the finals at Wimbledon.
Twenty-one year-old Garbiñe Muguruza is through to the final on Saturday (July 11) after beating Polish player Agnieszka Radwanska by 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 in one hour and 56 minutes.
Muguruza, daughter of a Basque migrant and a Venezuelan woman, will be the first Spanish woman in a Wimbledon final since Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in 1996.
“I have no words to describe it. It’s a dream, but I want to win and I need to concentrate on the final,” the triumphant player said after her semi-final win, who knows that on Saturday she will have the chance to claim a trophy only one Spanish woman, Conchita Martinez, has ever won.
