Garbine Muguruza’s season has been a bit up and down! Consistency and injuries have been an issues but finding form has been tough.
Her defence of her Wimbledon title fell flat quickly going out in round one with a flat performance.
Victoria Azarenka on the other hand has not found rhythm this year. The Belarussian has only won two matches in a row once this year in seven tournaments since her comeback to the tour at Indian Wells.
At Wimbledon I said she was just not effective and didn’t do anything to hurt Pliskova, it was just a passive performance !
So who needs the win more?
Muguruza is in an outside position right now for Singapore so does need the wins. She usually does pick it up on the hard courts and she really needs to!
Azarenka’s comeback hasn’t taken off baring a semifinal run at Miami and she does need the wins now. She has had some tough draws but does need the wins as pressure is adding on her.
Who needs it more? Id say Azarenka. She hasn’t had a big win since Miami when she defeated Pliskova.
