Re: Did Muguruza give up on being a great player?

Her game became more one dimensional after her first Slam. Lost power, variety and consistency in her shots.

Re: Did Muguruza give up on being a great player?

Maybe because she's not actually Spanish.

Do Spanish people give af about tennis except Rafa Nadal?

arantxa and conchita are very very well known and iconic especially arantxa. its weird, garbine is a non entity. even carolina marin (badminton player) is much more known

Sumyk destroyed her game and FH eventually,so as confidence...she played best tennis during asian tour 2015. Which was beginning of sumykuruza... at that time she had great working patterns and it looked really simple.

And Ivanovic might be more "relevant" ranking wise,but her "peak" is laughable compared to Muguruza's.and yeah ,ivanovic never knew to toss ball..lol

She never was that dominant and the league is just too good for anyone to fear a player that doesn’t have consistent dominance over an extended period...

Take Andreescu’s 6-0, 6-1 destruction of her at Indian Wells... People know they can do this to her...
You in this thread*pretends to be shocked* and lol,what you know how players think to say someone expected wins.you must be wta insider Lol

Garbi looked good when she beat Bertens in IW, and then got torched by Bibi the next match. She plays well once in a blue moon these days

Re: Did Muguruza give up on being a great player?

If anything, she should never had even one slam, biggest overachiever on the tour.

Sharapova - Halep - Kvitova

Re: Did Muguruza give up on being a great player?

She's not athletic enough to keep up with the new generation. It's as easy as that. Her movement isn't coordinated and that's not something you can just learn at that age.

Re: Did Muguruza give up on being a great player?

Yes, I think lack of motivation Similar to Sloane, but not as bad.

Many other players (Top players) just have more will to win than Garbine

Look at Barty, Halep, Bibi, Svitolina, Pliskova, Kvitova, Serena, Bencic, Sabalenka, Bertens, Kenin, Mertens, Yastremska, Gauff, Martic, Görges and Sakkari.
And then compare them to Muguruza and Sloane and their fighting spirit/motivation

A shame because of their big talent. But Garbine and Sloane simply don´t have the fire consistently.
Garbine and (especially) Sloane give up too quickly and do not fight hard enough.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."


Serena Williams Maria Sharapova Jelena Jankovic
A. Radwanska V. Zvonareva C. Wozniacki P. Kvitova
N. Petrova A. Chakvetadze A. Myskina L. Davenport M. Hingis
A. Kournikova T. Paszek K. Sprem J. Dokic I. Tulyaganova

Re: Did Muguruza give up on being a great player?

Remember that in between winning RG and Wimbledon she was rather average on the general tour. Had nice peaks but not sustainable.

I think the fact that both of Mug’s slams came when she was more or less slumping has hurt her in the long run. She probably just figures she’ll snap out of bad patches eventually so isn’t motivated to mess with things too much. The Sumyk partnership has seemed to almost lull her into complacency.

Good news is she’s got plenty of time left to right the ship. I really hope to see her nab another RG before she’s done.
