Garbine Muguruza the former Wimbledon champion is going through a very rough patch. This has been a horrible season for the former world number 1 as she made just one quarterfinal appearance after winning the WTA Tour Finals in 2021. She has lost most of her tournaments in the opening rounds including the French Open 2022, a Grand Slam she won in 2016, and to top it all off the Wimbledon 2022.

Muguruza was trailing 4-6 going into the second set against Greet Minnen and the match was stopped due to rain delay. The 24-year-old Belgian began the second set and soon Garbine was trailing 0-5 as she served the last set, she was teary-eyed due to her poor performance. Minnen finished the match 6-4, 6-0 as the 2017 Wimbledon Champion lost in the first round. The only consolation for Muguruza was that her pain on the court ended quickly.

Something is very wrong with Muguruza as the former world number 1 has not been herself for many months now and going into the hard courts she hopes that things would improve. She was in a lot of pain due to her brutal loss and it’s quite concerning that this spell has continued for so long. Muguruza took to her social media to address all of these problems. She wrote:

“These last six months have been very hard. Dealing with defeats, frustration and pressure. Competing in RG and Wimbledon, tournaments that I love, with all the preparation and effort that my whole team has made, not finding my tennis has been emotionally, a very hard blow. To my followers and those who place their expectations on me, just to say that I’m sorry and I hope that the remaining six months of 2022 are more bearable and I can at least find those good feelings again”
