Spain’s Garbine Muguruza won her first Grand Slam title by beating defending champion Serena Williams 7-5, 6-4 at the French Open, denying the American her record-equaling 22nd major trophy on Saturday.

The fourth-seeded Muguruza, a 22-year-old from Spain, used her big groundstrokes to keep No 1 Williams off-balance and overcame signs of nerves in the form of nine double-faults to pull off the surprise.

Take a look at the complete list of French Open women's singles champions:
