Garbine Muguruza will be playing her first match today since her Wimbledon’s round one exit. For the Western and Southern Open 2019 in Cincinnati, Garbine Muguruza will be seeking the coaching support from Anabel Medina Garrigues.
Garrigues is a former Spanish tennis player and she presently heads Spain’s Fed Cup team. Also, she trained Jeļena Ostapenko, who won the 2017 French Open Grand Slam title. In Cincinnati, World Number 27, Muguruza has been training with her.
Soon after her round one loss in London, she parted ways with her coach Sam Sumyk and annulled her four-year-old coaching tenure with him. They together achieved the French Open and Wimbledon titles and climbed on to the WTA’s summit.
The former Wolrd Number one, Garbine Muguruza skipped a series of tournaments in North America due to an injury in her leg. The 2017 champion in Cincinnati, Muguruza will step on the professional tennis court almost after six weeks and she will play the sixteenth seed, Madison Keys in the Cincinnati opener.
The multiple-time Grand Slam, Garbine Muguruza is expected to be fit and fine for the last Slam of the year and hopefully, she will produce some flourishing outcomes. This year, Muguruza just won a title in Monterey Open, where Victoria Azarenka retired in the midst of the final match.
On the WTA courts of Cincinnati Open 2019, the former Cincinnati champion, Maria Sharapova came back from a 3-5 trail and eliminated Alison Riske 6-3, 7-6(4) in the opening round. She will now take on World Number two, Ashleigh Barty. Previously both of them played a tough battle in Australia this year.
Venus Williams is also through to the next round. Caroline Wozniacki and Jelena Ostapenko, Caroline Garcia, Johanna Konta and Anastasija Sevastova experienced a round one loss. Today, Azarenka, Serena Williams, Sloane Stephans, and Naomi Osaka will be in action.
