Garbiñe Muguruza returns, two years later, to the Wimbledon final. The Caracas tennis player was immense in her semifinal against the Slovak Magdalena Rybarikova, the sensation of the tournament, whom she defeated 6-1 and 6-1 in 64 minutes. And it is that with the arrival of London grass, it is offering its best version of the season.

Garbiñe Muguruza Wimbledon
Rybarikova was overcome by circumstances (it was her first Grand Slam semifinal) and by a much more determined, braver rival, willing to risk the most but choosing the best option at all times.
Garbiñe had a mission: to reach her first final of the season, her third at the Grand Slam and her second at Wimbledon, and nothing and no one was going to separate her from that purpose. Much less when your opponent does not enter the game until the second set and when he is already with the water up to his neck. But it is that everything that Muguruza tried came out.
In the baseline game, with deep shots and tight to the lines (22 ‘winners for only eight of her rival), she moved the Slovakian out of her comfort zone. And, when he went online, Garbiñe also did it with very high guarantees of success (he won 19 of the 25 points he played there).
Things had to be twisted a lot for the victory to escape the Venezuelan Hispanic tennis player. He did not give a single respite to the game, to which he gave a very high rhythm and intensity … which he did not reduce at any time.
Garbiñe equals the two finals played by Arantxa Sánchez Vicario (1995 and 1996) and remains one of the record for Spanish women’s tennis at Wimbledon set by Lilí Álvarez in the 1920s (1926-28).
Rival awaits: the winner of the duel between the American Venus Williams, five-time Wimbledon champion, and the British Johanna Konta, local idol.
"It was a cheating match, she is very talented but I entered with confidence and everything went well. I was much more prepared than the other time I played the semifinals here. I’m playing well and I want to keep doing it in the last game"Garbiñe stressed to the BBC’s microphones.

"Being in a Grand Slam final is a great achievement and I don’t care who the rival is, I want to continue at this level and enjoy it"She added, before highlighting the help of her coach at this Wimbledon, the only Spanish champion in London grass (1994), Conchita Martínez. "She has already won here, I have not. He has been helping me with his advice and I am sure he will now too", closed Muguruza.
Conchita Martínez will coach Garbiñe Muguruza at Wimbledon.

This has been announced by the number one Spanish in their social media accounts explaining that their coach, Sam Sumyk, has had to return to the United States "for a family issue" and he will not be able to be in London during the third Grand Slam of the season that begins this Monday.
The Venezuelan Hispanic tennis player, who will start as the fourteenth seed, will not make her debut in the London grass until Mars according to the draw since Angelique Kerber, finalist in 2016, will have the honor of opening the Central and that day she will play her half table, in which Muguruza was framed.

It is not the first time that Garbiñe has requested the help of the Davis Cup and Federation Cup captain. He already used his advice and experience during the US Open 2015, after the breakup of the Venezuelan Hispanic with his then coach, Alejo Mancisidor, who is currently working with Lara Arruabarrena. Muguruza arrived in New York with the halo, and the pressure, of having been a finalist a few months earlier at the All England Club.
Conchita is the only Spanish champion at Wimbledon. She faces the challenge of trying to contribute to the recovery of a Muguruza that is starring 1xbet mobil in a very irregular season, which has led her to lose her position among the top ten in the world ranking.
The Caracas tennis player also arrives at Wimbledon with the bad taste in her mouth of her overwhelming defeat in Eastbourne against the Czech Barbora Strycova.
There are tears and tears. Tears of joy and tears of sadness. And this Sunday at Roland Garros we have had an example of both. Those of Pablo Carreño, after his hard-fought victory over Milos Raonic, released a lot of tension, a lot of nerves.

They were also the tears of a boy who has seen his work rewarded. Not only of the last months but of years. The reward for leaving home, from his native Gijón, to settle in Barcelona, first, and in Villena, later.
Pablo took it all out. "It was a very tough, long and beautiful game, with a dramatic ending. Many emotions come to you and I needed to release the tension that I had inside. You see that the work pays off and it is a relief. I was thinking about all this and that my parents had to go in the third set to return to Asturias"Carreño explained later.

Very different were the tears of Garbiñe Muguruza. Also mix of emotions. But less pleasant. The champion appeared before the media with teary eyes. At the gates of the press room, to which he arrived with a serious face, he had spoken with his manager.
Question time in English and when questioned about the attitude of her rival, Kristina Mladenovic (who shouted ‘force’ every mistake made by the Venezuelan Hispanic), Muguruza collapsed. She left the room and a minute later something more composed returned.

Upon his return, he replied, with a certain irony, "I have been told that he speaks about 25 languages …". His unease was a mixture of "disappointment at not being able to win and anger because, honestly, it wasn’t easy to be on track".
"You know what? I love this tournament, whatever happens. And I’ll be super happy when I get back. It’s going to sound weird but right now I’m happy that this phase of the season has passed. I wanted to go as far as possible but even now I think I’m going to feel a lot better for moving on through the season and everyone is going to stop bothering me asking about this tournament so yeah it’s going to be a way to move on"he explained.
The treatment he received from the public hurt Garbiñe. "I don’t know what you expect me to say, I won’t say anything. It was a bit shocking, it reminded me of the Federation Cup", assured Muguruza, who understands that he should try "turn a deaf ear and focus on my team. I know this loss is going to hurt more than a loss in any other tournament, but I’m not going to make a drama.", he concluded.
First impact at Wimbledon with the elimination of Stan Wawrinka, third racket in the world, at the hands of 21-year-old Russian Daniil Medvedev: 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 and 6-1 in two hours and 13 minutes of play .
On at 21:43 CEST
The All England Club has never been very good at the Swiss: sixth elimination in his first game in thirteen appearances in the third Grand Slam of the season. In addition, on this occasion, it seems that he had physical problems since he requested on several occasions the presence of the physiotherapist and even the doctor to consult about his left knee on which, at each break, ice was applied.
But that in no way detracts from the best victory in Medvedev’s career, the first over a ‘top 10′ and the first in a Grand Slam … in his first Wimbledon, the most special stage!
A total of 42 winners show that the Muscovite went for the victory … And that the grass is not bad at all: quarter-finals in s’Hertogenbosch (coming from the previous phase) and Queen’s and semi-finals in Eastbourne, reaching his best ranking (49) this Monday.
By contrast, Wimbledon will continue to be the ‘cursed’ Grand Slam for Wawrinka, champion in Australia (2014), Roland Garros (2015) and US Open (2016). With this defeat, Stan says goodbye to the battle for number one in the world, a position defended by Andy Murray and to which Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic also aspire, who debuts this Tuesday.
Toni Nadal, Rafa Nadal’s uncle and former coach, spoke on Onda Cero’s ‘El Transistor’ program to discuss the current situation in tennis, the cancellation of Wimbledon (something that had not happened since World War II) and the exceptional moment that occurred lives in the world because of the coronavirus crisis.

Precisely about the coronavirus pandemic, Toni Nadal commented that Rafa was warned by Bill Gates: "My nephew when he was playing in South Africa in February spoke with Bill Gates (co-founder of Microsoft) and told him that what was happening in China was going to get complicated."
In addition, the coach pointed out that "Until there is a drug or a vaccine I see the picture quite complicated. We will live in a situation of uncertainty and danger until this is not channeled entirely well" and threw a dart at the politicians: "The main thing is to save lives and there has been ignorance throughout the political apparatus of many countries. We should banish the fanaticism of politicians, they are there to defend society, not their ideals. Fanaticism is one of the great evils of this society".
