Muguruza has a style of play that suits all courts. She won the French Open in 2016. This will be her second appearance at Charleston, the first time was in 2013 where she couldn’t go past the first round.

Frech hasn’t dropped a set yet on her way into the second round but that will count for almost nothing when she comes up against one of the best players on tour. 

Match Prediction: Garbine Muguruza will beat Magdalena Frech in straight sets.
