Wimbledon: Hilary Swank, Olivia Palermo and Aidan Turner among celebs who turned out to watch Muguruza win first title
A crowd of celebrity spectators turned up to see Spain's Garbine Muguruza win her first Wimbledon title on Saturday afternoon, triumphing over five-time champion Venus Williams.
Oscar award-winning actress Hilary Swank and Hunger Games star Stanley Tucci were among those who turned up to support Venus (37) in the high tension final, which saw 23-year-old Muguruza come out victorious over her childhood idol.
Swank attended the match with her boyfriend Philip Schneider while Emmy-award winner Stanley Tucci had a day out with actor pal Woody Harrelson.
Former Great British Bake Off star Mary Berry also was spotted at the Wimbledon final with her husband Paul, while reality star Olivia Palermo also nabbed a gold dust ticket to the event.
Poldark actress Eleanor Tomlinson and a male friend avoided the celebrity box during the final, instead opting to sip Pimms and indulge in the traditional strawberries away from the A-list crowd.
Tomlinson's Irish costar, Aidan Turner also turned up to see Muguruza's victory over Williams on Saturday.
Speaking to the press after claiming the Wimbledon title, Muguruza said: "I had the hardest match today against Venus.
"She's such an incredible player. I grew up watching her play - sorry," she said.
"I feel incredible to be able to play her here. Of course I'm nervous because I always dreamed about winning it, but I was composed."
Speaking of her loss, Venus opened up about her sister Serena, who is currently taking a professional break from tennis as she prepares to welcome her first child.
"I miss Serena," Williams said .
"I tried my best to do the things you do - but I think there will be other opportunities."
