Gar­bine Mugu­ruza —

Sportstar - - CHESS COLUMN -

What’s wrong with Gar­bine? As the de­fend­ing cham­pion at Wim­ble­don, she shock­ingly lost in the first round. Then Mugu­ruza pulled out of both San Jose and Mon­treal with an arm in­jury.

Once con­sid­ered the heir ap­par­ent to Ser­ena’s throne, the two­time ma­jor champ has floun­dered this year other than reach­ing the French Open semis and the Doha fi­nal. Even if she’s in­jury­free in New York, it’s highly doubt­ful the 6’ Span­ish power hit­ter will re­gain the form that took her to No. 1 a year ago.
