Unfortunately, this year's Wimbledon recorded the highest number of pull-outs due to injury that robbed the tournament of its glitz.
Martinez does not expect Muguruza to suffer the same letdown as she did after winning the French and hopes she can be more consistent.
Her autoimmune disease Sjogren's seemed the most obvious reason her energy levels sapped allowing Muguruza to inflict the first 6-0 scoreline on the 37-year-old in her 20-year Wimbledon history.
And she was so close to gaining the upper hand against Muguruza, holding two set points at 5-4 in the opener.
Williams has always worked to the motto 'if you're hurt you don't play and if you play you're not hurt'. Muguruza's defence was relisient, and her competitive will tougher still.
"She played really well".
"I think it's very impressive". "They said when I won the French Open that my life was going to change but it didn't".
Williams, 37, was the oldest woman to make the final since Martina Navratilova, who just happened to lose to Martinez.
"Don't be sad. You'll be holding this trophy very, very soon; believe me", said Serena. It was on view for the world to see on Saturday.
The Briton came into the tournament under a cloud, facing questions about his fitness after a first-round exit at the grasscourt warm-up event at Queen's.
She then attacked Williams on serve in the next game and earned two set points of her own with Williams hitting long on the second for 5-6 In the changeover Muguruza had time to consider her position of serving for the set.
Muguruza was nerveless in saving two set points in the 10th game, the first a 19-stroke rally that ended when Williams netted a forehand.
"When I knew I was playing Venus in the final, I was actually looking forward (to) it", Muguruza said. The key is to continue to work hard and to focus in every tournament.
Muguruza lifted the trophy with 14 winners to 17 for her opponent; Williams was weighed down by five double faults and 25 unforced errors.
For Venus, her meeting with Muguruza marks a second grand slam final of 2017, having been beaten by Serena at the Australian Open, in what is a remarkable resurgence in the twilight of the seven-time grand slam champion's career.
