Garbiñe Muguruza saved this Monday a very tense debut at Roland Garros and defeated the Slovenian with great difficulties Tamara zidansek in three sets, 7-5, 4-6 and 8-6 in 3h.01 ’in a match of constant ups and downs in which the shadow of the premature elimination of the former champion of the Parisian tournament appeared.
Muguruza conceded a 0-3 start, lost the first set but reacted, equaled the Slovenian in the second set and everything was decided in a very tense third set (8-6) after more than three hours of fighting and in the that again Garbiñe raised a 0-3 inning.
The Spanish-Venezuelan, 26 years old and 15th WTA, will be able to continue saying that she has never lost in the first round of Roland Garros, and in the second she will face the Slovak on Wednesday Viktoria Kuzmova or to the czech Krystina Pliskova.
Zidansek, a 27-year-old Slovenian and 83rd in the world, made life difficult for her from the beginning, but Muguruza maintained that positive attitude that is leading her to the honor rounds in each tournament. Recent semifinalist in Rome, the 2016 Roland Garros champion saved the furniture on a difficult day due to the unpleasant day.
Muguruza wore stockings and long sleeves to minimize the cold in Paris. Of those victories that cost but that relaunch. She had to be attended to in one hand during the third set. Maybe some blister.
