The Spanish tennis player Garbiñe Muguruza passed a level test after overcoming the demanding encounter that local Ajla Tomljanovic raised and won by a tight 6-3, 3-6 and 6-3 in a match that reached two hours and twenty minutes.
“It was a tough battle, she has played very well and that’s why I needed to raise my level to take the game,” said the tennis player after the conclusion of the match.
The bad sensations experienced during the first set of the first round in which the Hispano-Venezuelan suffered the aftermath of the febrile condition he suffered last week vanished.
He rounded a first set at a high pace and with powerful shots that reminded the version that crowned both Wimbledon and Roland Garros after starting with a break below.
His rival was re-engaged in a crash driven by a tier that mostly encouraged the Australian and tied the game to one.
However, Muguruza, who reached the knockout stages in the last edition, resumed the good feelings of the first round to get the game to the rest with the 4-3 favorable, which would later mean the achievement of the match.
The main Spanish hope could face in the next round the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina (5), who will face the American Lauren Davis on Thursday. .
