Garbine Muguruza makes candid admission as she assesses ‘tough season’

Garbine Muguruza admits she is looking forward to seeing the end of the current season as she continues to struggle for confidence.

Muguruza came into 2022 in good form and with high-hopes for a trophy-laden campaign. That hasn’t happened, though, with her instead feeling a huge sense of frustration in her performances.

She has fallen out of the WTA top ten as back-to-back wins have been tough to come by, and she is keen to get into the off-season to have a bit of a rethink.

“It’s been a tough season, a little bit of a roller coaster,” Garbine Muguruza admitted. “I don’t know if I’m going to be able, with these last tournaments, to have a different feeling. That’s my goal.

“I think that it’s all about confidence and how well you’re playing or how many matches you’ve been playing.

“Definitely this year I feel that I haven’t played that many matches so obviously when the important moments come, you really feel that confidence that is not quite there yet.

“I think also trying and trying and trying, at some point I will get rewarded.”

Murguruza has had a particularly poor season at the majors this year. In fact, the US Open was her best and she couldn’t get any further than the third round in New York.
