Garbiñe Muguruza: ‘I have to play better in the decisive matches’

Garbiñe Muguruza he lost his second season finale. Defeated in Melbourne, the Yarra Valley Classic, by Ashleigh barty, the Spanish yielded this Saturday to the Czech Petra kvitova, winner as had already happened in the 2018 edition of the Doha WTA 500, in Qatar.

There was not much history, in just over an hour the left-handed Kvitova beat the Caracas 6-2 and 6-1.

“I think I made too many mistakes, some important points did not fall on my side and I did not have a clear idea of ​​how to play. It was not very day, I did not get into rhythm, nor could I dominate and she took advantage of it. He played very solid from the bottom and I didn’t play clean. I think the conditions, the wind, have made my game dirty ”, analyzed Muguruza.

“I have always been behind and she has taken off. I have to play better in the decisive games “, confessed Muguruza.

He continues to have a good overall trajectory, but he still needs to win a tournament, something he has not achieved since he added his seventh WTA crown by winning in Monterrey 2019.

“It has been a good week, I feel that my level is there. I take a lot of good things with me, not the champion trophy, but I’m happy to have made a final ”, continued Muguruza.

Next week he faces the tournament Dubai WTA 1000, starting with a player who saves the previous phase. He does not know if he can count on his coach Conchita Martinez, confined to her Doha hotel after testing positive for coronavirus upon arrival.

“He’s fine and eager to go out. They have to test him and hopefully between today and tomorrow, if everything goes well, we will know when he can leave. I hope I can count on her soon, ”he said of his coach Muguruza.
