Garbiñe Muguruza collects disappointments in Paris. More than four years after her coronation in Paris, the Spaniard was still disappointing during her visit to Porte d’Auteuil. Released on Saturday night by Danielle Collins in the 3rd round, the protégé of Conchita Martinez had a very frustrating match on all fronts. Defeated in three sets (7-5, 2-6, 6-4), the 15th in the world lost a match that it should not lose. The famous.
Forced to race behind after the loss of the first set, where she took the entry break before returning it to 2-1, the double Grand Slam winner put a dazzling boost to equalize and pass in front . From a deficit of a set to nothing to being three games from victory with a double break in his pocket: Muguruza made this big effort and everything should have gone well. Obviously, everything ended badly.
A match started on the Lenglen … and ended under the roof of the Chatrier
At 3-0 in her favor in the last act, the Spaniard lost a game that hurt her very badly despite two game points. Rebelote at 4-3 where she conceded a second break, a few moments after being provided two new double break balls at 4-2. From missed chances to missed opportunities, the 26-year-old finally folded to 5-4 after a horrible last serve. Deprived of the first ball at the end of the match, and unsettled, she ended up losing a beautiful but very strange match.
This Muguruza-Collins turned into a special match even before he started. Scheduled and started in the rain on Suzanne-Lenglen court, this duel was stopped at 1-0, 30-15 Muguruza and … moved to Philippe-Chatrier court after Novak Djokovic’s match. Started in a court, finished on another with a roof, weather conditions required, this last match of the third round was also the strangest. This incident is reminiscent of what happened to Gaël Monfils and Gilles Simon in the 1st round of their duel at Wimbledon 2015. The two Frenchmen had started their duel on court n ° 1, before being moved to the Center Court for lack of a sufficient brightness.
