Garbine Muguruza isn’t shying away from her challenge tomorrow of having to stop Serena Williams’s run to history in the Wimbledon final. In fact, it’s the match she wanted in her first Grand Slam final. And she already has a win over Serena in a Grand Slam.
“I think is the best final you can play,” Muguruza said about having to play Serena.
“If you want to win a Grand Slam, when you dream, you say, ‘I want Serena in the final’. She’s like one of the best players in all these years. So it’s obviously I think the best challenge to have.
With her surprising run at Wimbledon, Muguruza is now unsure of having her parents and family flying in for the final. She doesn’t want to change what clearly has been working.
“They asked me two days ago, We want to come,” she said of her parents who are in Barcelona. “I said, No. Don’t change anything. I brush my teeth at the same time. I wake up with the same leg. I’m not going to change anything.
“I’m going to talk to them now, to see if they’re going to come or not.”
Muguruza, who beat Agnieszka Radwanska 62, 36, 63 in the semifinals, has one career title to her name. Serena Williams has 20 Grand Slam crowns and she’s won 27 consecutive matches at this level.
“She has like so many good things,” Muguruza said of Serena. “She’s stronger, good mentality, good shots, power, confident. You know, a lot of things that make her a great player.”
