Garbiñe Muguruza won the Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open. After the victory in two sets came the usual interview with the winner at the foot of the track. And the Spanish left an amazing pearl. He said he did not know who his rival was in the next round. “I don’t know who I play in the semifinals. Halep? Well, I will have to prepare the game well, “he said to the surprise of all the public gathered at the Rod Laver Arena. The Romanian won the match immediately before the Spanish. He did it by a double 6-1 in less than one time and the vertiginous victory perhaps left Garbiñe unable to access that information. The former world number one was satisfied with the victory: “I am happy with how I played, although many times with the sun it was difficult to see the ball.”
Garbiñe will barely have time to recover, since the women’s semifinals are played tomorrow. The final will be held on Saturday.
