Playing point by point helped Garbine Muguruza win her first Wimbledon title, according to Fed Cup captain Conchita Martinez, who coached her during the tournament.

"She's very powerful player. It's very important that she stays very aggressive, that she pushes and she goes for it," she said. "Sometimes you're going to win playing unbelievable, sometimes you're going to win playing ugly. The semifinals, I just told her, it's another match, not a semifinal. And today, it's another match, another day."

Court jester! Irishman has the craic at Wimbledon

Court jester! Irishman has the craic with stars at Wimbledon

Wicklow man Chris Quinn has become the latest internet sensation - and Ireland's unofficial Wimbledon Champion - after stealing the show with his surprise on-court guest appearance on Friday.

Four-time Grand Slam winner Kim Clijsters and former doubles champ Rennae Stubbs were playing 1994 Wimbledon winner Conchita Martínez and former World No 2 Andrea Jaeger in the Ladies' Invitation Doubles when Greystones man Quinn wrote his own place in SW19 history.

Clijsters asked Stubbs how she should serve, with Quinn then shouting from the crowd: "Body serve."

"You said 'body'?!" asked an incredulous Clijsters. "Why don't you go there?!" she exclaimed as she pointed towards where Martínez was standing.

The game Martínez then went to the crowd to hand Quinn her racket.

Quinn took up the challenge and made his way to the court as the crowd cheered.

The fun was only beginning.

Realising that Quinn - wearing blue shorts and a Green Lantern t-shirt - was not correctly attired, Clijsters ran to her bag to find him a new outfit.

"This isn't going to work. Kim, this isn't going to work!" said BBC commentator Tim Henman. "They're not going to get over the knees!"

But Quinn defied the odds to put on Clijsters' outfit as she collapsed on the ground with laughter.

"Oh my goodness. I really hope we don't have a camera shot from behind," said Henman.

Appropriately dressed and taking over from Martínez, Quinn awaited Clijsters' serve.

Clijsters regained her composure somewhat and served - with Quinn managing to return!

With the game over, he cheekily asked for one more serve from Clijsters - and then another!

Should Clijsters or, indeed, any of her fellow players need a new Mixed Doubles partner, they know just who to call.

Wicklownews.net reported that Quinn was allowed to keep the skirt as a souvenir.

Well its not everyday I get to share Wimbledon headlines with roger federer. I'll take it!!

Wimbledon Champion Garbiñe Muguruza and New Coach Conchita Martinez Split - Last Word on Tennis

Wimbledon Champion Garbiñe Muguruza and New Coach Conchita Martinez Split

Following Garbine Muguruza’s championship at Wimbledon, there was some thought that Conchita Martinez would stay on as the Spaniard’s coach, but the 1994 Wimbledon winner revealed she will not continue.

Muguruza defeated 37-year old Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0 Saturday in the final, winning the final nine games of the match to become the first player ever to defeat both Venus and Serena Williams in Grand Slam finals; she defeated the 23-time Slam champion at last year’s French Open.

Martinez talks about Muguruza’s successful fortnight

Martinez, who filled in for Muguruza’s regular coach Sam Sumyk while he was attending to family business, spoke to the press at Wimbledon about her countrywoman’s performance during the two weeks at The All-England Club:

“The whole two weeks, she’s played every point of every single match. That, mentally is very strong, and you can see players break down with that.

“For me, high intensity when you play a match is very important. She sort of did that. She plays relaxed but with a lot of intensity. Just point by point, I try to tell her, don’t think of anything else.”

She added that she knew Muguruza had the game to win in London, just as she herself did 23 years ago:

“She’s [a] very powerful player. It’s very important that she stays very aggressive, that she pushes and she goes for it. Sometimes you’re going to win playing unbelievable, sometimes you’re going to win playing ugly.

“The semifinals, I just told her, it’s another match, not a semifinal and today it’s another match, another day. I’m always in contact with every player but Sam her coach is going to step in now.”

Other commitments taking up Martinez’ time

Martinez will return to her regular jobs as both Fed Cup and Davis Cup captain for Spain. Having been promoted to the World Group this past year under her guidance, the Spaniards, led by Muguruza, fell to the defending champions Czech Republic.

Martinez was also able to lead Spain out of the lower tiers of the Davis Cup after their stunning relegation in 2014 by winning the World Group play-offs in 2016. They are currently in the quarterfinals against Serbia after a thrilling 3-2 triumph over Croatia in the first round.

It’s without a doubt these responsibilities that kept Martinez from staying with Muguruza full-time. Nevertheless, under her guidance, she tweaked the 23-year old’s game and brought her a second Grand Slam title to add to last year’s Roland Garros title.

Former Wimbledon champ Conchita Martinez fired by Spanish Tennis Federation

Tennis Planet.me Official Freaking Site Of Tennis Freaking Fans Worldwide - since 2006. Recent Posts Former Wimbledon champ Conchita Martinez fired by Spanish Tennis Federation.

The Spanish Tennis Federation says Conchita Martinez has been fired as the Fed Cup and Davis Cup captain.

On Thursday its board of directors unanimously decided to "make a change in the leadership of its professional teams . in order to face new challenges in 2018."

Spanish media said Martinez's contract ends in December.

Conchita Martinez won - t continue coaching Muguruza after Wimbledon

Conchita Martinez won't continue coaching Muguruza after Wimbledon

With her regular coach, Sam Sumyk, at home with his wife awaiting the birth of their first child, Garbine Muguruza got a heck of a substitute at Wimbledon.

Spain's Fed Cup captain and 1994 Wimbledon champ Conchita Martinez - who until Saturday was the last Spanish woman to have won the tournament - worked with Muguruza throughout the fortnight. Their partnership culminated in a 7-5, 6-0 finals victory over Venus Williams that delivered Muguruza her second major title.

Despite their success, however, Martinez does not intend to continue coaching her countryman.

''I'm here. I'm still the Fed Cup and Davis Cup captain and I'm always in contact with every player," Martinez told reporters Saturday, according to the Associated Press. "But Sam, her coach, is going to step in now.''

In her on-court interview after winning the title, Muguruza was asked if she had a message for Sumyk. She lifted up the Venus Rosewater Dish.
