Ladies, watch out!
If you didn’t think Muguruza was a major threat before you do now! The Spaniard took 70 minutes in her dismissal of Maria Sharapova on Suzanne Lenglen this afternoon.
Everything was just perfect from the third seed this afternoon.
I said at the beginning of this fortnight she looks in the mood and is now back in the semi-finals here without a set drop and looks locked in!
Everything was just perfect for Garbine and here’s a look at the numbers;
6/6 net points
72% first serves won
57% of return points won
15 unforced errors
Everything clicked. She took control so early on with her patience and steady play still using that acceleration and movement to keep Sharapova where she wanted her.
As well as Garbine played with the control on the backhand and the placement of the forehand Sharapova did not play well.
27 unforced errors and a second serve win % of 19% (5/26) is no where near good enough and is something I will have a look at over the coming days.
Garbine is locked in and she’s done it here before! The only player still in the draw who has!
