No sooner than the commentator brought up Garbine Muguruza’s placid demeanor, did the Spaniard unleash a furious racquet smash today in Beijing.
The smash turned out to fire up Muguruza who was down 5-1 at the time in the first set. While she lost the opener, she went on to take the match over Mirjana Lucic-Baroni 1-6, 6-2, 6-1.
The win also qualified the Wimbledon finalist into the WTA Finals in Singapore.
“I was really nervous before the match, because I knew I could get to Singapore and it was also my birthday,” said Muguruza who turned 22 today. “I’m relieved to have made it to Singapore, but I still want to do well in Beijing.”
