Garbine Muguruza Form


Garbine Muguruza reached the semi-finals of the Shenzhen Open at the start of 2020 where she lost to Ekaterina Alexandrova. The former world number one withdrew from the Hobart International due to illness before her quarter-final.

The promise shown in those tournaments translated into a big effort at the Australian Open where only Sofia Kenin got in the way of a third Grand Slam victory. Having beaten Shelby Rogers, Ajla Tomljanovic, Elina Svitolina, Kiki Bertens, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Halep, Muguruza lost the final in three sets.

A run to the quarter-finals in the Dubai Duty Free Championship followed where Jennifer Brady ended Muguruza's tournament, and she reached the same stage of the Qatar Open where world number one Ashleigh Barty proved too good.

A disappointing second round defeat to Tsvetana Pironkova brought her US Open campaign to an early end, but Muguruza has rediscovered some of her best tennis is Rome. She has conquered Sloane Stephens, Coco Gauff, Johanna Konta and US Open finalist Victoria Azarenka in a tough path to the semi-finals.
