“I don’t want to get obsessed.” It is the mantra that has taken Garbiñe Muguruza to the end of the Australian Open; Bet on your tennis and fill yourself with confidence, focused only on winning the next point. Today, fight for the title against Sofia Kenin, 21.
Reach this final after avoiding visible and invisible rivals; from less to more in Melbourne after being affected by a viral process that accompanied her the first few days. It has been remade with patience, work and concentration to survive that 0-6 with which the tournament began. From there, he fed the hunger as he overcame another three-set challenge against Tomljanovic; it overwhelmed Svitolina, number 5 in the world, and Kiki Bertens (9); he stood firm in a close encounter against Pavlyuchenkova; and endured the pressure of a high voltage shock against Halep.
«It has been an incredible progression. I am happy with how I managed to get my tennis in those games, ”he admitted in the previous one, as contained in his statements as in his gestures of rage or joy on the court. «It is a great achievement to be in a final. Few can do it. We train all our life for this moment. But I don’t want to get obsessed.
Part with the advantage of having been there, but knows that Kenin will go out for all. “The more you know, the more you think, and I will try to use my experience for the game, although during the match each player has 50 percent and you have to let the racket speak,” he admits. And this Muguruza wants to speak as loudly as he can. .
