Garbine Muguruza is a Spanish professional tennis player. Her current ranking according to the WTA is World No.3 and her highest ranking was World No.1. She has ten career singles titles to her name out of which two are Grand Slams. The Spaniard went out in just the 4th round of last year’s Australian Open, despite finishing as the runners-up to Sofia Kenin the year before. However, after her late-season resurgence and winning the WTA Finals 2021 trophy in Guadalajara, the World No. 3 would be looking to perform better and go deep in this year’s tournament. However, Muguruza didn’t start the new season well, crashing out of the WTA Sydney Tennis Classic at the quarter-final stage after a torrid performance against Daria Kasatkina.

Meanwhile, Clara Burel is a French professional tennis player who was rated very highly in junior tennis where she reached 2 junior Grand Slam finals and was the junior World No.1. The 20-year-old reached her first WTA final at Lausanne, where she lost to Tamara Zidansek over three sets. The youngster would be hoping that the new season is finally her breakthrough in the senior game and would hope to realize the potential she showed in junior tennis.

Garbine Muguruza would be going into the Australian Open 2022 being quietly confident. The two-time Grand Slam winner is currently ranked 3rd in the world, which signifies that she’s been doing well over the past year. The Spaniard would aim to reach deep into the tournament, even trying to win it, which would be her third Grand Slam and her first since 2017.

Despite not starting the new season so well, Muguruza would look to pick up from where she ended the previous season. Meanwhile, Clara Burel undoubtedly seems to have huge potential in the future, but would definitely be the massive underdog in the clash. The French woman would look to give a good account of herself and push Muguruza to her limits in this encounter.

Match Prediction-  Muguruza to win in 2 sets.
