Crying like a magdalena, unable to speak a word, Garbiñe Muguruza appeared in the mixed zone. The doubles that formed with Carla Suárez had just been eliminated by the Swiss Bencic and Golubic and they said goodbye to the Games in the second round. They fell 6-3, 1-6 and 9/11 in the supertiebreak, where they had a match ball.
And Garbiñe, who wanted to offer her friend Carla a goodbye to the Games with a medal, collapsed. “I take home a nice memory of having played here with her“, he was right to say. And it is that the Canary Islands enjoys the gift of continuing on the track after overcoming cancer and returning to Roland Garros after fighting for 15 months against Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
“It was tough because we had match ball and they were rivals who presented themselves as a good opportunity to advance, now I will focus all my energy on the individual“warned the number nine in the world.
After, the box was left without Spanish after the defeat of Paula Badosa and Sara Sorribes against the Czechs Krejcikova and Siniakova by 6-2, 5-7 and 10/5.
