A physically diminished Muguruza in the end gave up on Kalinina, 6-3 and 6-0


Garbiñe Muguruza he said goodbye before time Mutua Madrid is openthis time in the second round and could not compete against the Ukrainian Anhelina Kalininawho signed the corresponding 6-3 and 6-0 in an hour and 21 minutes.

Muguruza, who made a good impression in his debut against Australian Ajla Tomljanovic, will play in this tournament for the ninth time, where he has yet to pass the round of 16 he reached in 2018.

The Spaniard, who seeded seventh, has yet to face his rival on Sunday, who is ranked 37th in the world rankings.

After giving up his serve, 3-1, and not seeing his determined effort to recover it in the next game, where he had four break points, was rewarded, Muguruza failed to finish to start a new game. The set is ruined.

Kalinina, a great server who has yet to beat the top ten, was very good at forcing mistakes from her opponent, who started in the second set losing the serve with a double fault.

having a physio

Despite the shouts of ‘Come on, Mugu!’ who did not stop playing on the central court of Caja Mágica, the games fell on the Ukrainian side, in part also because the Spaniards needed the presence of a physio to reduce pain in the right calf.

It was 3-0 for its rival in the second set. Muguruza went to the locker room and came back but with obvious physical problems that led to his desperation and the truth is the ‘teacher’ 2021, who played the last three games with a bandage on his right leg and found his movement limited, left the track almost crying with helplessness and anger.

Kalinina reached the round of 32 at the Istanbul tournament last week and will play in the round of 16 in Madrid.

Her rival will win the confrontation between British Emma Raducanu, seeded ninth, and Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk.

Muguruza, winner of two Grand Slams, former world number one and current ‘teacher’ of the circuit, has reappeared in Madrid after nearly two months inactive due to a shoulder injury.

He is the seventh seed, among the top ten, to bid farewell to the Mutua Madrid Open.

Canadian Bianca Andreescu is also in the second round, beating American Danielle Collins, sixth favorite, by resounding 6-1 and 6-1.

The number one favorite, Iga Swiatek of Poland, withdrew on the eve of the competition due to injury. In the first round, the number 3 and defending champion, Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka fell; the five, the Czech Karolina Pliskova; and the tenth, Latvian Jelena Ostapenko; and in the second round they defeated Spanish Paula Badosa, second seed, and now Collins, sixth, and Muguruza, seventh.

This way, the favorite in the role to win the title is Greek Maria Sakkari, the fourth seed, who will play late this Sunday against Russian Daria Kasatkina.
