PARIS (Reuters) - Spanish fourth seed Garbine Muguruza claimed her maiden grand slam title when she beat world number one and defending champion Serena Williams 7-5 6-4 in the French Open final on Saturday.

The 22-year-old, who lost to Williams in last year's Wimbledon final, is the first Spaniard to lift the Suzanne Lenglen Cup since Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in 1998.
