Bet and win
Simona left the junior league early enough for her age and began to play tennis at a professional level. Here she quickly realized that playing at such a high level requires complete dedication because in order to win the tournament it is necessary to show everything the athlete is capable of. At the age of 15, she performed in adult competitions in Bucharest, and in 2008 she left Romania for the first time, taking part in a tournament in Belarus. In 2009, she reached the quarter-finals at the competitions in La Palma, and paired with Alexandra Dulgheru reached the semifinal stage in Rimini.
The following years, with all the victories and defeats, made the Romanian famous. Being an emotional person, she is very happy about victories and is very worried about defeats, but not one of them has broken her spirit, and already in 2013, Simona took 11th position in the ranking table, and in 2014 became the third racket of the world. All this under the guidance of an experienced mentor Darren Cahill.
Belief in one’s own strengths and continuous self-improvement – this is what made Simona successful in tennis. Every year she managed to improve her position in the world ranking. Having received the title of the third racket of the world in 2014, she is not going to stop and will continue to fight on the court and beyond. Of course, constant training does not leave time for personal life, so the name of Simona remains unchanged.
At the Australian Open, Simona Halep has already reached the finals. In 2018, she was close to the title but lost in the decisive match to Wozniacki (6-7, 6-3, 4-6). This year, everything is going well for the Romanian tennis player in Melbourne.
Throughout the tournament, it was only in the first fight against Jennifer Brady that it took Halep time to enter the game. She managed then in two sets (7-6, 6-1).
Following in the four matches held, there was not even a hint of serious problems during the matches of Halep. True, not a single rival from the top 10 was in the way of Halep. At the same time Putintseva, Mertens, Kontaveit showed excellent tennis before their matches against Halep. It did not help tennis players. Putintseva took five games (1-6, 4-6). Mertens created a little more problems but lost (4-6, 4-6). In the quarter-final against Kontaveit, everything turned out even more convincingly in the performance of Halep (6-1, 6-1).
The first steps in tennis Muguruza made at the age of 16 years. Having started performing in a series of ITF tournaments in 2009, she already won her first title in December. In the next two seasons, the tennis player chalked up another five trophies in this category. The victory at the 25 thousandths in Florida was a turning point in the career of Gardinier, who received an invitation to the WTA series in Miami. The debut was a success: in the very first matches, the beginning tennis player beat Vera Zvonareva and Flavia Penetta, the ninth racket of the world, reaching the fourth round. From this moment, Garbine becomes a regular participant in the WTA championships and by the end of the season is in the top 100.
2013 brought the tennis player the first WTA title in pairs, won in Hobart in tandem with Maria Teresa Torro-Flor. In the same season, she made her debut at the Australian Open and in the future, she only added. The following year was marked by the first single WTA title. In 2015, Garbine made her way to the final of the Grand Slam tournament for the first time, losing the Wimbledon title to Serena Williams.
The following seasons were the peak of the Muguruza career. In 2016, she raised the first Grand Slam trophy conquered in France over her head. In a stubborn final confrontation, she managed to beat the youngest of the Williams sisters – 7:5, 6:4. A year later, the tennis player celebrated a triumph at Wimbledon, where she prevailed over Williams Sr. – 7:5, 6:0.
The American segment of the season was no less successful for her, as a result of which she was ahead of her closest rivals, Karolina Pliskova and Simona Halep. In September 2017, Garbine became the first racket of the world.
The following seasons were not so successful for the tennis player. Due to a series of injuries, she could not feel for her game, often eliminating in the early stages of major competitions. Garbine left the top 10 and continued to lose points, by the end of the season – 2019, being on the 35th line.
For the first time in a long time, Muguruza reached the semifinals of the Grand Slam tournament. The last time we saw Garbine at the Roland Garros in 2018 was at such a high stage. Then the Spaniard played in the semi-final against Halep and lost with a crushing score of 1-6, 4-6. It was on the ground, now hard.
Two starting victories in Melbourne over Rogers (0-6, 6-1, 6-0) and Tomlyanovich (6-3, 3-6, 6-3) raised many questions about the Muguruza game. Garbine played too unstable. Following against more serious rivals, the Spanish tennis player worked much more stable, she did not send any sets to Svitolina, Bertens, and Pavlyuchenkova.
In the match against Svitolina (6-1, 6-2), she played almost without her own mistakes, surpassed the opponent in the strength of the blows, quickly went on the attack. With Bertens and Pavlyuchenkova much less mistaken than rivals. The current Muguruza, who has believed in himself, is dangerous for any rival.
