Muguruza, against Kostyuk with the last two champions

Muguruza, against Kostyuk with the last two champions

Garbiñe Muguruza did not have much luck in the draw for the Roland Garros draw, the clay-court Grand Slam that starts this Sunday. Although it depends how you look at it. The Spanish, who will debut against the Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk, a dangerous rival she has never faced, fell at the top of the table with the last two champions of the tournament, number one Ashleigh Barty, who won in the 2019 edition , and Iga Swiatek, winner last year. The other part of the table was not easy either, with the winner of 23 majors, Serena Williams, and the Japanese Naomi Osaka.

Muguruza, champion in 2016, would have on her way after Kostyuk, taking into account the ranking, another Spanish, Sara Sorribes, who will debut against the Chinese Saisai Zheng. Then there would be Martic, before Swiatek, a possible opponent in the second round, and Kenin, a potential opponent in the quarterfinals. In the semifinals, Barty would wait for him before a hypothetical final against Osaka, who will start his career against Tig.


Carla, back to Stephens

Carla Suárez is in the same sector as Muguruza, but for the top quarter, and will return to competition after more than 15 months of inactivity and overcoming cancer against Stephens. It will be a complicated return, because the American has beaten her in her three games, but rewarding in her farewell to the tournament. The other Spaniard with a guaranteed place, Paula Badosa, will face the Danish Tauson. Lara Arruabarrena will seek this Friday in the previous one a fifth place for the Navy in the main draw.
