Carla Suárez played the last match of her career at an Olympic Games on Tuesday. A farewell that he shared with Garbiñe Muguruza in the doubles match that both lost in the super tiebreaker against the Swiss Bencic and Golubic.
In the subsequent Eurosport interview, Muguruza could not hold back the tears for her friend Carla, who was also moved by expressing her feelings and praised the former world number one. “There are many emotions, I have had a very bad time, she knows it. I really wanted to do well. We have been playing together for many years. This was our last game and it is a pity that it ended like this, in this round. She has made a great effort to play two games on the same day. She is one of the best players in the world that I have seen and I thank her for everything she has done “said Suarez, who overcame cancer a few months ago. “We have lacked to bring a medal to Spain,” he added.
CARLA SUÁREZ NAVARRO.
We are at your feet. Today and always.

Garbiñe recovered himself and was able to speak saying goodbye to his partner: “A great friend is leaving us.” “We missed the match ball victory and that hurts a lot. It’s a shame,” he said.
