Muguruza has perfectly negotiated his first appearance in a final square of a Grand Slam since her title at Roland Garros in 2016.
Wimbledon — The Spanish Garbine Muguruza, 15th player in the world, has qualified on Thursday for the final of Wimbledon, thanks to his victory expeditious on the Slovakian Magdalena Rybarikova, 87th in the world, in two sets 6-1, 6-1.
Already a finalist in 2015, Muguruza will face in the final the winner of the other semi-final between the American Venus Williams (11th), and the British Johanna Konta (7th).
Rybarikova, surprise of the tournament after including his elimination of the future world number 1, the Czech Karolina Pliskova, has been dominated by the Spanish in a little over an hour (1 h 04 min).
On the central Court, Muguruza has perfectly negotiated his first appearance in a final square of a Grand Slam since her title at Roland Garros in 2016, as intractable on its service. It did not rule out that a single ball break.
“This match was complicated because she was playing well since the start of the tournament. But today I raised the level of my game and everything went well,” responded the Spanish 23-year-old.
“My experience has helped me because I knew how to react to the situation,” added the one who had reached the final in 2015.
