Spanish tennis ace Garbine Muguruza will now play her third final of the 2021 season at the Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships. However, the two time Grand Slam winner admits that she has to prove nothing at this moment.
At the age of three-years-old, Muguruza began to play tennis with her brothers. Since turning professional in 2012, Spaniard has won seven WTA tour-level titles out of 14 finals appearances.
“I’m Very Motivated, and I’ve Been Working Hard,” says Garbine Muguruza
After reaching the second consecutive final of the season at the Dubai Open, a Geneva resident was asked about her recent outstanding performances in the post-match interview.
“I’m very motivated. I’ve been working hard. I have a good team around me. I feel it’s a good moment, a good moment in my career, with my age, with my knowledge, the things that I’ve achieved,” Garbine Muguruza said.
“This Is Not The Pressure Anymore”: Muguruza on Again Winning Grand Slam Title
On the other hand, Muguruza had also been ranked No.1 and No.2 player globally for several weeks from 2015 to 2018 by the Women’s Tennis Association(WTA).
“I don’t think I have to prove no more that I can win a Grand Slam, that I can be No.1. This is over. Now is the time to forget all those things than when you’re young you’re thinking, when will I win a Grand Slam? When am I going to No.2 or No.1? All of those things are gone already. Of course, I want to be in those positions again, but this is not the pressure anymore. I’ve done it, and I want to do it again. That’s how I feel right now,” Spaniard stated.
At the Dubai Tennis Championships 2021, No.9 seed Muguruza will lock horns with the Czech Barbora Krejcikova in the finals.
