The Spanish Garbiñe Muguruza could not overcome this Monday the first round of Roland Garros when they were defeated on Monday by the Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk, who gave him no options and won by 6-1 and 6-4 in an hour and 29 minutes.

The 2016 winner, twelfth seeded, had never lost in the first round in her eight previous appearances at the clay court Grand Slam. Physically depleted, which led him to receive medical assistance, the Spanish could barely rival against number 81 in the ranking, which gave him no options.

It was the culmination of a bad season on clay in which the woman from Caracas has not had good results, in a year in which her physique has been hard on her.

Muguruza committed 40 unforced errors and only 9 winners against Kostyuk, very solid from the bottom of the track, without giving the Spanish any options. Her next rival will come out of the duel between the Spanish Sara Sorribes and the Chinese Saisai Zheng.
