Another shot of Garbiñe in the Mutua: falls in the first round

The Venezuelan-Spanish bid farewell to Madrid at the first exchange with a defeat in two sets against the Croatian Petra Martic, number 36 worldwide.


Garbiñe Muguruza still does not find herself. After losing the two individual points he played in the FedCup Spain-Belgium tie two weekends ago against lower players, this Sunday he bid farewell to the Mutua Madrid Open in the first round against the Croatian Petra Martic, number 36 in the world, of 28 years, which comes from winning the Istanbul tournament (7-5 and 7-6 (2)) .

Martic, with a varied tennis that mixes different heights and effects was not the most comfortable player for the Garbiñe style ( he added 34 winning shots for 41 unforced errors, too many), which also tend to feel the pressure to do well at home, as she recognized before starting the tournament. All that happened to him invoice. He started badly, giving up his serve in the fifth game and, although he recovered it soon after, in the eighth, he lost again when he tried to force the tie-break and the Croatian did not fail for 7-5.

In the second set both Breaks were exchanged in the sixth and seventh games and ended up in the tie-break. In him prevailed Martic with clear superiority: 7-2. Continue the curse of Garbiñe in the Magic Box. This is already three losses in the first round for Caracas (2012 and 2017 in addition to this), three in second (2014, 2015 and 2016), one in the preliminary phase (2013) and one in the second round, last year against Kasatkina .
