Legendary German tennis star Boris Becker also took to the social networking site to congratulate the Spainard.

"One of the best first sets I have seen at @Wimbledon #Muguruza #Williams in a final ...," tweeted Becker.

Muguruza had earlier beaten Serena Williams to clinch the French Open women's singles title last year. She became the first Spanish woman to win the Wimbledon since Conchita Martinez in 1994.
