The Spanish Garbiñe Muguruza, number 13 of the WTA tennis rankings, has lost its round of 16 match of the Miami Masters 1000 in three sets against the Canadian Bianca Vanessa Andreescu, number 9 in the world, by 3-6, 6-3 and 6-2.
TO Muguruza (27 years old), this championship resists him thus – he has never managed to pass the round of 16 – while the Canadian is already waiting in the quarterfinals the also Spanish Sarra Sorribes Tormo, number 58 of the WTA ranking, who won his match in three sets against the Tunisian Ons Jabeur, number 30 in the world.
The first set was very even until Muguruza, in it eighth game, broke the service of Andreescu and got ahead on the scoreboard with a 3-5. Minutes later he managed to close the set without giving the Canadian a chance to reply with a blank game.
The second round of the match, which lasted a total of 2 hours and 11 minutes, followed the same dynamic, with highly contested games that reached ‘deuce’ up to three times and with two service losses by Muguruza against one by Andreescu, so that the 20-year-old Canadian knew how to suffer, recover to the first set and sign up the second, closing, like Muguruza in the first, with a blank game.
Nor did the third start well for Muguruza, with a loss of serve in the first game, something that the Canadian was able to take advantage of, who continued to play at a high level, with confidence, winning the first four games and closing the match 6-2.
In the match, the Spaniard obtained 49 percent of the total points (88 of 181) against 51 of her rival (93 of 181), obtaining three direct aces each and the Canadian making 3 double faults.
