Svitolina, KaPliskova and Konta are really on fire at the moment. And the things is they have won their last match vs Garbine.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

Garbine is basically the only reason I watch AO, now that my only male favorite Djokovic is out.
Tennis has been not very enjoyable since RG, which happened to be one of the highest high of my tennis watching experience

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

Well Garbiñe game is a bit hybrid in last times, it saves her a bit in some matches. However her aggro tendencies are still present and improving lately so it is a positive side. Bcs of that I think Sevastova should be an absolved match-up she shown her once what she is capable of, so Garbi is warned. She showed throughout these years that she is indeed intelligent player, unlike majority of BBBs, and that is why she is a top player and why I fancy her chances and dont doubt she will get through to 1/8 it will be a matter of sets 2 or 3.

Hereby I predict her a final should she stay healthy and should she somehow get past those 2-match ups. No losses vs. scrubs anymore that I am quite certain for her. Better times coming. Vamos Garbi!

Garbs's serve looks clicking majority of the match, but the American is really not a stellar returner.

At least Garbine doesnt look too hampered by her right thigh. Let's hope it will keep that way.

My gut says that Sevastova will be a better indicator on Garbine's level in this tournament.
Garbine girl, you better revenge on that embarrasing USO's wig snatching
That's what I was thinking. Crawford is a basher who doesn't give any kind of rhythm: it's 2 unplayables and then 3 UEs, so matches with her are usually going to suck for everyone involved, unless she's on fire and it's all winners everywhere (rarely) or else she's happily hitting herself out of the court in 40 minutes (more likely) so at least it doesn't last too long. I only could watch it on the sly while at work, and the little I saw looked pretty messy. I noticed mostly Garbi's FH breaking down when Crawford zoned on it, which is the right tactic for big hitters against Garbi, but ofc I don't think it even registered on Crawford.

Sevastova is a totally different kind of fish. She moves the ball around very well, and has a good depth and placement with her FH. If Garbs is ailing she can take advantage.

Crazy to think that everyone is sucking so much that even playing like this Garbs can make it to the QF and could fight with Eugenia of all ppl for a SF spot if Kerber doesn't step it up.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

Well it was routine win more or less, glad she won in straights, Crawford was peaking at the moments, but I think Garbi played wise with no risks concerning her thigh, otherwise it could have been shorter.

Fact is she marches on and on, makes easy but steady progress as the year goes on!

Now Sevastova and time for revenge for that USO early exit! She will get proper 2-day rest that is very good!

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

I only saw some highlights of Garbi’s first round match. It seemed to me that she was performing better on her forehand again. She was hitting flatter and I think she was also using a slightly less extreme forehand grip. Maybe it was only about a strategy change because of her injury that she was more aggressive, but in general I think she is in good form. It would be a pity if her chances got diminished due to that injury.

Matchup-wise, an in-form Crawford with her heavy and flat hitting is not the easiest of opponents for Garbine anyway.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

Tomorrow on RLA, the first night match, sandwitched between Noserer and Mooza
I think the Aussies loves her, since so far she's always been playing on the main court. I could be wrong though

Get your leg fixed and march on Garbine!

I was thinking the same thing after the first set and MTO, too.

It was kind of refreshing to see glimpses of a player trying to dictate and shorten the points as much as possible again.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

Very encouraging to see that "Fighteruza" is back, great fight despite injury, hope it will heal now, she has 3 day pause till next match. It would be a shame if injury sidelines her now, when she really has a great chance given her form.

Re: Garbiñe Muguruza

In her PC, she had it's only a precaution and mostly mental (concerning her injury). I hope it's the truth. She smiles a bit too much it almost as if she try to hide it. I just hope it's really nothing serious and a session with physio can really help it for the next round.

Anyway, it's nice to see her FH is back when she cant put any of her first serve in She still has it

Apparently the girl who was always next to Sumyk in Brisbane called Alicia. I think she's on her team as physical trainer or something. Im not sure though, since that girl looks to skinny to be one

And she said that she just practiced today with Bacsinszky under the closed roof of RLA poking @Plies . I can imagine they are exchanging some pussy weak forehand on that slow surface
