Venus Williams' bid to win a sixth Wimbledon title at the age of 37 has been dented after she lost the first set 7-5 against Garbine Muguruza in the final.

In a match being played under the roof on centre court due to rain in south-west London, Spain's Muguruza saved two set points on her own serve trailing 5-4 before winning the next three games to edge ahead of the American, whose last appearance in the final was eight years ago.
