The event, which marks the end of the tournament, took place at the Guildhall, London.

Traditionally, the men's and ladies' singles champions celebrate their victories by dancing together.

But a spokeswoman for the All England Club said there was no dance floor at the venue, and that part of the evening was discontinued in the 1970s.

On Sunday night Spain's Muguruza tweeted "@rogerfederer are you ready to dance? #ChampionsDinner".

Last year Andy Murray declined to dance with women's singles champion Serena Williams, but later partied into the early hours of the morning at a London nightclub. 

The previous year Williams and Novak Djokovic did  take to the floor together.

He beat Croatian Marin Cilic in straight sets, in an emotional final.

Muguruza, 23, lost a Wimbledon final to Serena Williams two years ago, but came back fighting on Saturday. She beat Venus Williams to win a second grand slam title.

"But I want to see if he's that elegant also dancing."
