Dominant Muguruza reaches Wimbledon finals

Garbine Muguruza dropped just two games against unseeded Magdalena Rybarikova to clinch the first spot in the Wimbledon women's finals.

LONDON -- Garbine Muguruza has earned the first spot in the Wimbledon women's final, beating unseeded Magdalena Rybarikova 6-1, 6-1 on Thursday.

The 14th-seeded Muguruza, who reached the final at the All England Club in 2015 and won the French Open in 2016, had little trouble with Rybarikova, the 87th ranked player in the world who was playing in the semifinals at a major tournament for the first time in her career.

Muguruza won the first five games of the first set, facing only one break point and saving it. She then broke twice to open the second set and take a 4-0 lead.

"I think I played very well, for sure," Muguruza said in her televised interview after the match. "It was a tricky match. [Rybarikova] was playing very good during the tournament, and I think today I stepped out on the court super-confident and everything went well."

She will next face the winner of the second semifinal between five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams and Britain's Johanna Konta.
