GARBIÑE MUGU­RUZA

Ocean Drive - - Past Champions -

Ranked num­ber 7, Garbiñe Mugu­ruza took Paris by storm, and we don’t mean at the stores on Champs El­y­see. The venue- Roland-gar­ros. The event- Women’s Fi­nals. Yes, Mugu­ruza sealed the deal with her break­through win of 7-5, 6-4 tri­umph over Ser­ena Wil­liams to be­come the cham­pion at the French Open! This 6’ foot achiever worked it un­til clinch­ing the tro­phy in the fifth match point! At 22-years-old, she be­came the first Span­ish woman to win a Grand Slam since Aran­txa Sanchez at the 1998 French Open. Did I men­tion what a huge ac­com­plish­ment this was to de­feat Wil­liams since Ser­ena was a fav of Mugu­ruza’s grow­ing up? Dreams com­ing true right be­fore our eyes. Mi­ami Open ten­nis fans- you want to check out Garbiñe Mugu­ruza kick­ing it on the court and tak­ing names.
