Re: Tokyo QF: (1)Muguruza def. (9)Garcia 6:2 6:4
Not a good match at all, and imo Garbiñe is starting to look like she's overplaying. She has barely stopped since the grass season and still has Wuhan/Beijing/The YEC. Also Garcia can be so bad that she can drag her opponent down with her, which explains a bit the second set shit show, but she is the most unclutch player in the top 20 and her ROS, with her ridiculous two steps inside the court positioning, is a non stop LOL, so still you never felt like she was really going to have a chance..
I would say, the "GS champion mentality Halep v2.9" would have never let the Beijing title gone away because of her unprepared tennis. This means only Halep v2.8 was playing in Beijing (and defeating Sharapova and Ostapenko).
