The Spaniard then took part in the Hobart International where she defeated Yafan Wang and Ons Jabeur before pulling out of the tournament due to illness.

Muguruza’s Australian Open got off to a terrible start but she bounced back against Shelby Rogers to win 0-6 6-1 6-0. Ajla Tomljanovic was defeated 6-3 3-6 6-3 before an easy 6-1 6-2 win against 5th seed Elina Svitolina.

Speaking about the prospect of facing Halep, Muguruza said “"She's a very solid player. She's played very consistency through all these years. It'll be a tough match. That's the case no matter when you play the Top 5. It's a semifinal, so of course I'm expecting her to bring her best game.”
