LONDON (AP) — Conchita Martinez won't be staying on as Garbine Muguruza's (GAHR'-been moo-gah-ROO'-thuhz) coach despite helping guide her to the Wimbledon title.

When Muguruza beat Venus Williams in today's final, she became the first Spanish woman to win Wimbledon since 1994. That was the year Martinez defeated Martina Navratilova, who was 37 — the same age Williams is now.
