Fourth seed Muguruza won 7-5 6-4 to make amends for losing last year’s Wimbledon final against the American.

The 22-year-old is Spain’s first female champion at Roland Garros since Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario in 1998.

“This is the big tournament in Spain and Rafa (Nadal) is our champion,” she said courtside, referring to the nine-times men’s winner who pulled out injured last week.

Serena had hoped to win a 22nd grand slam singles and tie Steffi Graf’s open-era record.
