Muguruza happy to go under the radar

Garbine Muguruza felt the pressure at her home tournament in Madrid last week, losing her second match of the week to Irina-Camelia Begu. But in Rome it has been a different story with the third seed able to slip relatively off the radar.

It has though been a fine week so far for the Spaniard and she underlined that by comfortably beating Jelena Ostapenko 6-1 6-4. While other seeds may have fallen early, Mugruza remains in contention after reaching the quarter-finals with little fanfare.

“I’m not trying to change anything,” she said. “Just, as always, practice, go to the match, do everything I can. I did the same in a previous tournament but maybe I here I found my game a little bit more but I’m not really changing anything.

“Tha was a tough match for me against Begu last week. But, I’m just looking forward to play as many matches I can. That’s going to help me.

“There is a difference here, obviously, because in Madrid, I have a lot of motivation and I feel a lot of support, I think here in Rome is also a big tournament, and I’m maybe less nervous at the beginning of the matches but I’m also very competitive.”
