Former World No.1 Garbine Muguruza lost her fourth-round match to Canadian Bianca Andreescu in the three sets at the Miami Open 2021. It was the sixth fourth-round loss for Spaniard at the Florida Premier Mandatory event. However, the two-time Grand Slam champion admits she is happy with the way she is playing.

“I Feel It Was Like A Very Tight Match”: Garbine Muguruza 

Muguruza took the lead in a Round of 16 match after claiming the first set(6-3), but she failed to keep momentum in the following two sets(3-6, 2-6). As a result, Garbine missed a chance to reach the fourth quarter-final of the season and halted the 8-match winning streak.

“I feel it was like a very tight match. I felt I had many opportunities. I had opportunities in the second set to take the lead. I just didn’t convert them,” Muguruza told reporters after the match. 

The Spaniard made her first WTA main draw appearance at the 2012 Miami Open as a wild card entrant when she fell in the fourth round to the eventual champion Agnieszka Radwanska in straight sets. Afterwards, Muguruza lost the Round of 16 matches in 2013, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2021.

The 2016 French Open champion continued, “So far, (it’s) probably my best start of the year, and I’m happy about that. I take the positives. I know right now it is a tough moment, but in five minutes, I’m just going to change my mind and just look ahead to the clay-court (season), which is my favourite surface. I’m happy with the way I’m playing.”

The clay-court season begins on 5th April from the Volvo Car Open and Copa Colsanitas. Roland Garros takes place from 23rd May to 5th June in Paris.
