Muguruza recalls disappointment of losing 2020 Australian Open final - "It's a tournament I like a lot"
A two-time Grand Slam champion, Muguruza was hoping to lift the title in Melbourne for the first time. The former World No.1 won the opening set against Kenin but ended up losing the match following an inspired comeback by the American.
"I was on the verge of the trophy in that final," revealed Muguruza in an interview with RTVE. "It is a tournament that I like a lot because it is summer, it is Australia and the people there are very fond of sports and understand tennis."
The Spaniard has failed to reach another Grand Slam final since, although she did cap off 2021 by claiming her maiden WTA Finals trophy. Currently ranked at World No.3, the 28-year old will have another chance to progress fat at Melbourne Park.
