Hello and welcome to Sportsday with me, Hugh Ferris.

:00:17.:00:22.

The headlines this evening: Garbine Muguruza

:00:23.:00:23.

She wins nine games in a row to prevent Venus Williams

:00:24.:00:27.

claiming her first Grand Slam title in nine years.

:00:28.:00:30.

England collapse at Trent Bridge to leave South Africa

:00:31.:00:32.

Lewis Hamilton storms to a record-equalling pole

:00:33.:00:35.

position for tomorrow's British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

:00:36.:00:37.

Also coming up in the programme, Chris Froome is back in yellow.

:00:38.:00:39.

He shakes off his rivals on stage 14 to retake the overall lead

:00:40.:00:43.

And join me, Kate Gray at the Olympic Park, when I will be looking

:00:44.:01:01.

ahead to all the action at the world para athletic Championships.

:01:02.:01:09.

So then, plenty to come, including the latest big

:01:10.:01:12.

Premier League signing, but we'll start at Wimbledon

:01:13.:01:14.

and while Sunday might bring a very familiar winner,

:01:15.:01:16.

the women's tournament has produced a new champion.

:01:17.:01:18.

Let's head there now and join Hugh Woozencroft.

:01:19.:01:25.

A magical day for Muguruza? Yes, Hugh, a new name etched in Wimbledon

:01:26.:01:37.

history today, that of Garbine Muguruza. She becomes the second

:01:38.:01:42.

woman from Spain win the ladies title here. Her stand-in coach

:01:43.:01:47.

Conchita Martinez won it in 1994. She won it in real style, taking on

:01:48.:01:51.

the five-time champion Venus Williams.

:01:52.:02:00.

On Finals weekend, Centre Court brings the generations together,

:02:01.:02:02.

Garbine Muguruza, one of the newest stars against its greatest survivor.

:02:03.:02:14.

At 37, the stage was set for Venus Williams aiming to be

:02:15.:02:17.

Beneath the roof you can hear the secrets of her longevity, power.

:02:18.:02:21.

She wants to close out points quickly, but amid the aggression

:02:22.:02:24.

Those flashes took Williams to the brink of the first set.

:02:25.:02:29.

She had two points for the advantage, but back came

:02:30.:02:31.

Muguruza, with bravery and brilliance,

:02:32.:02:32.

Her battling saw off break points and suddenly she had the lead.

:02:33.:02:48.

That exchange would have its effect on Williams.

:02:49.:02:55.

Even with her experience, she gets unsettled.

:02:56.:03:01.

Muguruza has grown into this tournament, now she had

:03:02.:03:03.

Three breaks in the second set had her racing towards the title.

:03:04.:03:07.

Two years ago she was denied by Serena.

:03:08.:03:09.

Tears of despair a couple of years ago but overwhelming joy now.

:03:10.:03:19.

Venus Williams says she will be back again to win more.

:03:20.:03:23.

It was the game's new star to light up centre.

:03:24.:03:33.

I had I think the hardest match today against Venus.

:03:34.:03:39.

I grew up watching her play so it is incredible

:03:40.:03:42.

SUE BARKER: But she was an inspiration?

:03:43.:03:48.

That first set was crucial, wasn't it?

:03:49.:04:07.

We both had a lot of chances so I am glad I made it.

:04:08.:04:13.

Congratulations, it is amazing. I know how hard you work. This means

:04:14.:04:43.

so much to you and your family. Well done today. Beautiful. But also,

:04:44.:04:51.

Venus, well done to you because you have had a great tournament. Yes,

:04:52.:04:56.

thank you. Thank you to my team who have been here day in, day out.

:04:57.:05:03.

Thank you to my family. I love you guys. And a message to Serena? I

:05:04.:05:09.

miss you. I tried my best to do the same things you do, but I think

:05:10.:05:13.

they'll be other opportunities, I do.

:05:14.:05:20.

So Venus Williams says she'll be back but it was a fantastic day for

:05:21.:05:31.

Garbine Muguruza. After the match we spoke to another former champion,

:05:32.:05:36.

Mary Pierce. It was quite something. That first set was a real battle.

:05:37.:05:44.

There was the epic long rally of 19 shots where Garbine Muguruza played

:05:45.:05:49.

so solid, so aggressive. I think that really turned things around for

:05:50.:05:54.

her, winning that game, going to 5-5 and winning the first set. And it

:05:55.:05:59.

seemed physically Venus Williams was at the same player in the second

:06:00.:06:03.

set. The first set took a lot out of her physically. Very quickly,

:06:04.:06:09.

Garbine Muguruza took that match. But so happy for her. I think she

:06:10.:06:14.

really deserves it. She has worked hard to get back to where she is

:06:15.:06:19.

now. Garbine Muguruza won the French Open last year and I was so happy to

:06:20.:06:24.

see that smile on her face afterwards. And having Conchita

:06:25.:06:26.

Martinez in her camp as well has also given her confidence that

:06:27.:06:32.

someone else has already done this and can give her tips. What does

:06:33.:06:38.

this victory mean to her, the second grand slam title, how big an

:06:39.:06:44.

achievement if this? I think it consolidates and concerns your

:06:45.:06:48.

position in tennis and to say, I am a champion, I am a grand slam

:06:49.:06:52.

champion now, I have done it twice. I'm here to stay and hopefully to

:06:53.:06:58.

win some more titles. Garbine Muguruza did not have a great year

:06:59.:07:01.

over the last 12 months. It has been hard for her to adjust to a new

:07:02.:07:06.

lifestyle. So many things have changed and she has had real

:07:07.:07:10.

difficulties. There is a time it takes to get used to that. She has

:07:11.:07:15.

gone through that time and now she is Wimbledon champion now. Having

:07:16.:07:19.

two grand slam titles will give her a lot more confidence for the rest

:07:20.:07:25.

of the year. Venus Williams will be so disappointed. There was so much

:07:26.:07:32.

history riding on this match. Were you disappointed? I was so proud of

:07:33.:07:41.

her. At 37 years old, and with an immune condition, to be playing so

:07:42.:07:45.

well is incredible. After everything she has been doing in her career,

:07:46.:07:53.

she obviously enjoys playing tennis. She is obviously sad that she lost

:07:54.:07:57.

but I think she can be proud of herself because she knows she has

:07:58.:08:01.

gone out there and she has given 100% of herself and really left

:08:02.:08:07.

everything out on the court. Mary Pierce with David on steam.

:08:08.:08:10.

British fans would have been hoping Johanna Konta could make it to the

:08:11.:08:13.

final but it was not to be for her. Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid

:08:14.:08:20.

defended their wheelchair In what was a repeat

:08:21.:08:22.

of last year's final, this years was played on a show

:08:23.:08:25.

court for the first time. The pair had to come from behind

:08:26.:08:28.

after losing the first set on a tie break to France's Stephane Houdet

:08:29.:08:31.

and Nicolas Peifer. It is quite tiring and we had to

:08:32.:08:49.

restart and go again. I think we did a good job of having no regrets,

:08:50.:08:53.

playing instinctively, and that is what we did in the end. More finals

:08:54.:09:03.

today. Out on Centre Court there is a very tight men's doubles final.

:09:04.:09:20.

Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic taking on Lukasz Kubot

:09:21.:09:24.

Well, focus turns to the men's final tomorrow.

:09:25.:09:29.

14 years after winning his first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon,

:09:30.:09:32.

Roger Federer stands on the verge of an historic eighth

:09:33.:09:34.

All-England Club triumph and 19th Grand Slam title.

:09:35.:09:36.

Victory over Marin Cilic would also make the 35-year-old the oldest man

:09:37.:09:39.

I think the record is really gave me an extra source of motivation and

:09:40.:09:47.

inspired me to train harder and inspire me to keep doing what I am

:09:48.:09:56.

doing. The greats of the game did not play for records. I could get

:09:57.:10:00.

inspired by the fact that maybe I could break a record. Now we are in

:10:01.:10:05.

the same situation again, it reminds me of May be my first Wimbledon when

:10:06.:10:10.

I was trying to do that or when I was trying to defend my first

:10:11.:10:15.

Wimbledon or going for my fifth Wimbledon to beat Bjorn Borg was

:10:16.:10:19.

amazing. I am happy to have these moments at Wimbledon. I know when I

:10:20.:10:23.

step on court against Cilic, I will be ready. The occasion will not be

:10:24.:10:30.

too big to conquer, to understand what I am going through. I will be

:10:31.:10:33.

ready and I am looking forward to it. So Federer are going for a slice

:10:34.:10:40.

of history tomorrow when he takes on Croatia's Marin Cilic. The big news

:10:41.:10:47.

is Garbine Muguruza of Spain has won the ladies title over Venus

:10:48.:10:49.

Williams. Thank you.

:10:50.:10:52.

England have handed South Africa control of the second test

:10:53.:10:55.

at Trent Bridge after a batting collapse on day two.

:10:56.:10:57.

After wrapping up the tourists' first innings for 335 this morning.

:10:58.:11:00.

England were bowled out for 205 in reply, losing 7

:11:01.:11:03.

And South Africa have extended their lead.

:11:04.:11:12.

A serene scene at Trent Bridge. Down below, Joe Root and England prop

:11:13.:11:25.

Leave plotting to break that. If there is one player they can rely on

:11:26.:11:33.

to create noise, it is James Anderson. Needing four dismissals to

:11:34.:11:37.

wrap up the South Africa innings, Anderson was in no mood to share

:11:38.:11:46.

them out. Little over half an hour played, 335 all out. The applause

:11:47.:11:52.

well earned. Now over to South Africa, to plot their response. It

:11:53.:11:57.

was as swift as it was effective. Alistair Cook stopped before he was

:11:58.:12:01.

allowed to get started. The very next ball, Keaton Jennings, out.

:12:02.:12:06.

Trent Bridge suddenly silenced. Then it was down to Joe Root to get the

:12:07.:12:12.

crowd on their feet. He passed 50. A recovery of sorts but one that would

:12:13.:12:14.

not last. When he went for 78, England were right back

:12:15.:12:30.

in trouble. Benz begs could not offer a single run of help. Now the

:12:31.:12:33.

only sound, that of wickets falling and South Africa celebrating.

:12:34.:12:35.

England collapsing to 205 all out. The day ending as it began, with

:12:36.:12:38.

South Africa batting. Only Trent Bridge now a little less calm. South

:12:39.:12:41.

Africa are firmly in control. England's women have set up

:12:42.:12:46.

a World Cup semifinal clash with South Africa after a convincing

:12:47.:12:48.

92 run win over West Indies today. They continued their good form

:12:49.:12:53.

with the bat, posting 220-7 In reply, West Indies

:12:54.:12:56.

never came close, losing wickets regularly

:12:57.:13:06.

with Natalie Sciver picking up 3 as England sealed

:13:07.:13:08.

a comfortable victory. Australia will meet India

:13:09.:13:11.

in the other semifinal. Confirmation that England

:13:12.:13:13.

finished top of the group stage. Australia beat South Africa today

:13:14.:13:22.

by 59 runs, finishing second India's huge 186 runs win over

:13:23.:13:25.

New Zealand saw them finish third. Lewis Hamilton will start tomorrow's

:13:26.:13:29.

British Grand Prix on pole position as he attempts to make

:13:30.:13:31.

history at Silverstone. Patrick Gearey watched the Mercedes

:13:32.:13:33.

driver dominate today's qualifying. The future of the British Grand Prix

:13:34.:13:44.

might be unclear, but its presence, that is all about Lewis Hamilton.

:13:45.:13:48.

This weekend they have come to see Lewis Hamilton come to make history,

:13:49.:13:53.

to level Alain Prost and Jim Clark's record of five race wins in the

:13:54.:13:57.

British Grand Prix. Hamilton equalled Clark's record of five pole

:13:58.:14:02.

positions. It started in very British conditions. The drizzle but

:14:03.:14:06.

had disrupted final practice, reappeared for the first session of

:14:07.:14:11.

qualifying. Daniel Ricciardo suffered turbo failure and there was

:14:12.:14:17.

a problem for full on the -- Ben Ando Alonzo. Hamilton came to the

:14:18.:14:27.

fore in Q2 and Q3. His final lap was quicker than Kimi Raikkonen. I

:14:28.:14:32.

needed to make sure I got that lap in. I did not do it in the last race

:14:33.:14:36.

so I made sure I saved it this weekend. Thank you, guys so much. A

:14:37.:14:42.

sensational piece of driving which will be remembered by all who saw

:14:43.:14:47.

it. Motor racing offers no guarantees. When Hamilton gets

:14:48.:14:49.

ahead, he does not often look back. It could prove a crucial day

:14:50.:14:53.

at the Tour de France after Chris Froome reclaimed

:14:54.:14:56.

the leader's yellow jersey The Team Sky rider finished

:14:57.:14:58.

just a second behind stage-winner Michael Matthews,

:14:59.:15:02.

but managed to break away from the previous overall

:15:03.:15:03.

leader Fabio Aru. Turning a six second deficit

:15:04.:15:05.

into a 19 second advantage. Britain have won a second gold

:15:06.:15:08.

at the World Para-athletics Making it four medals

:15:09.:15:11.

in total so far. And there are plenty of chances

:15:12.:15:17.

to add to that tally during the evening session

:15:18.:15:20.

on day two. Kate we should start with Stef Reid

:15:21.:15:22.

after her gold today. Absolutely right. Stef Reid has been

:15:23.:15:39.

waiting for this gold medal for 11 years. She was over the moon to

:15:40.:15:44.

receive the gold medal. It has been very windy here at the Olympic Park.

:15:45.:15:49.

She took the lead from her first jump, then bettered it in the third

:15:50.:15:54.

round to five metres 40 and managed to maintain that lead until the very

:15:55.:15:59.

end. Showing off all her composure and experience she has gained over

:16:00.:16:03.

the years, and in front of the home crowd, it was the dream ending for

:16:04.:16:14.

Stef Reid. We spoke to her afterwards, as much as it has been

:16:15.:16:16.

an overwhelming moment for her, I think it has sunk in. This is what

:16:17.:16:19.

she had to say. I think it was overwhelming but I probably need a

:16:20.:16:24.

moment to reflect on it. It is really satisfying. When you work on

:16:25.:16:29.

something for a long time, it is satisfying. I think I am really

:16:30.:16:33.

grateful and thankful to everyone who has stayed with me and been on

:16:34.:16:39.

the journey. Two goals so far but there could be more later on? It

:16:40.:16:45.

will be a very busy evening taking place in the stadium. We have a lot

:16:46.:16:51.

of Brits in action. I will give you the highlights. Paralympics champion

:16:52.:16:55.

Richard Whitehead goes in his trademark event the 200 metres, the

:16:56.:17:02.

event which made him famous at London 2012. He has been in

:17:03.:17:06.

incredible form this season. He has already broken the world record in

:17:07.:17:10.

this event. He is feeling confident at the age of 40 that he will still

:17:11.:17:15.

be able to perform here in London and definitely put on a great show

:17:16.:17:19.

for the crowds here. We are definitely looking forward to seeing

:17:20.:17:25.

him. Also Kadeena Cox. You may remember her from the Paralympics.

:17:26.:17:29.

She was the only athlete to compete in two sports and win gold in both,

:17:30.:17:34.

the athletics and cycling. She will go in the T 30 to 100 metres. And

:17:35.:17:41.

there is also Hollie Arnold, the Paralympic champion, will champion

:17:42.:17:45.

and hoping to defend her title in the javelin throw. She missed out on

:17:46.:17:49.

a medal five years ago and will be hoping to put that right in front of

:17:50.:17:54.

the home crowd this evening. Thank you.

:17:55.:18:09.

and Emma Wiggs both won gold at the Para-canoe European

:18:10.:18:12.

Championships in Bulgaria, adding to their Paralympic

:18:13.:18:14.

Former swimmer-turned canoeist Chippington,

:18:15.:18:16.

who has won 12 Paralympic medals, beat Russian Alexandra Dupik

:18:17.:18:18.

into first place by almost a second and a half in the KL1W 200 metres

:18:19.:18:22.

Wiggs won the KL2W 200 metres final, and was almost three seconds

:18:23.:18:26.

faster than her fellow British team-mate Charlotte Henshaw

:18:27.:18:28.

The England under 19 and have won their Championship final against

:18:29.:18:41.

Georgia. The under 19 took the lead through a second-half header before

:18:42.:18:46.

one of the worst or best goals you will ever see. England again went in

:18:47.:19:01.

front in the second half. Lucas Metra has won this for them. This is

:19:02.:19:09.

for England is another significant piece of silverware in what has been

:19:10.:19:13.

a fantastic summer for them in the age groups.

:19:14.:19:25.

Chelsea have completed the signing of French

:19:26.:19:26.

international midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.

:19:27.:19:28.

The 22-year-old helped the principality side claim

:19:29.:19:30.

the Ligue 1 title last season, and joins Chelsea on a five-year

:19:31.:19:32.

contract for a reported fee of up to 40 million pounds.

:19:33.:19:35.

Great Britain's Lois Toulson and Matty Lee have won silver

:19:36.:19:38.

in the diving mixed 10 metre synchronised event at the World

:19:39.:19:40.

The teenagers, who won European gold together last month,

:19:41.:19:44.

held off the challenge of North Korea who had to settle for third.

:19:45.:19:47.

It means a lot. We have not been training that long, about a year

:19:48.:20:02.

now. We have shown really good performances over Europe and in

:20:03.:20:06.

Britain. This is our first world competition and we have done well

:20:07.:20:10.

which we are happy with. It is hard to do synchro with a boy and girl

:20:11.:20:13.

pairing but I think we suit really well together on the board. I don't

:20:14.:20:18.

know what it is but I feel like I relax with Lois a lot on the board

:20:19.:20:28.

and she died is really amazing. It is a good partnership and we are

:20:29.:20:29.

happy. Ian Poulter has a share of the lead

:20:30.:20:31.

heading into the final round He's on nine under par along with

:20:32.:20:34.

another Englishman Callum Shinkwin Poulter, who finished second

shot on the eighth helping him to one of those his playing partner

:20:43.:20:47.

24-year-old Shinkwin, ranking outside the world's top 400,

:20:58.:21:02.

at Royal Ascot by seeing off the unbeaten heavy favourite

into 3rd place today at Newmarket. Harry Angel's win was a nice

:21:07.:21:09.

birthday present for owner Sheik Mohammed who won his first

:21:10.:21:12.

July Cup. There'll be more sport here on BBC

:21:13.:21:20.

News throughout the evening. From the team here, it is goodbye

:21:21.:21:28.

for now.

:21:29.:21:31.
