The Spanish tennis player Garbiñe Muguruza won (6-1, 3-1) to the Belarusian Victoria Azarenka this Sunday and lifted for the second year in a row the tournament Monterrey (Mexico), of International category for the WTA and that is disputed on hard court, with the retired due to injury of his rival in the second set.
The Venezuelan-Spanish returned to the final of the Mexican event that last year gave her the only title in 2018 and took advantage to release the record of 2019 and add the seventh of his career. The double champion of 'Grand Slam' took a step forward in a season that again did not finish taking off.
Muguruza survived a week of tough games, from less to more until reaching a high level that allows him to revalidate the Monterrey title to face with better confidence the jump to the ground. The one in Caracas signed a first perfect set and then maintained the concentration before the gestures of pain of his rival.
Azarenka finished the first set and received medical assistance. With a bandage on the right calf, the Belarussian was four more games on the court, leaning in each exchange and sighing for a pain that ended up pulling her out of the final. The match started already uphill for Azarenka, with a 'break' against.
'Garbi 'then saved a fourth game in which his opponent had three break balls and broke again to get 4-1. Towing, Azarenka left many blows, until finishing the partial yielding his serve again and with 16 errors not forced by the 8 of the Spanish. In that last game the double champion of Australia twisted the gesture.
The intense week took its toll on an Azarenka who played her first final in three years and after her maternity leave that ended at the end of 2017 she does not find rhythm in the midst of injuries. Muguruza gave no option with his serve, while his rival seemed unable to support the foot, and after breaking in the fourth game went to the net to accept the victory for withdrawal.
