Garbiñe Muguruza is increasingly comfortable at Melbourne Park, where he was a finalist last year. The game of the Spanish has not had cracks so far this tournament. Of course, this Friday they were not appreciated in her undeniable victory against Zarina Diyas in two sets and only 56 minutes for a double 6-1. The 27-year-old Kazakh woman and 83rd in the world, who studied psychology at a distance, could not decipher Garbiñe’s tennis, which is still accurate as a Swiss watch. In three games he has made exactly 14 unforced errors in each of them. As if it were a bet.
For now, the balance between aggressiveness (17 winning shots) and control is embroidered. Execute the parallels, both with the drive and backhand, to perfection. And it looks phenomenal in terms of mobility, an aspect in which it improves day by day. All with an impeccable attitude, without a bad gesture. It will be necessary to maintain these virtues in the second round, because it comes curves. Her next opponent could be 2019 tournament winner and former world number one Naomi Osaka, provided the Japanese defeats Tunisian Ons Jabeur.
Of the game, little can be said beyond the fact that Muguruza completely dominated it against a rival who did not know how to squeeze him, although he had four break options before the serve again quite sure of the Caracas, who only lost one point in the net (6/7), another positive aspect to consider. Garbiñe’s average minutes on the court is 64, he has not lost a set and has only given 10 games in the first three rounds. A number that are exciting and that you will have to endorse against larger opponents like those that come now.
