Ex-Wimbledon Champ Garbine Muguruza announces extended tennis hiatus until summer: “Spending time with family

2017 Wimbledon Champion Garbine Muguruza has stated that she will take an extended break from tennis until the summer.

Muguruza, who has won two Grand Slam titles, has declared that she is taking an extended break from tennis until the summer. In a statement released on Monday, the Spanish player stated that she is stepping away from the court to spend quality time with her family and friends.

So far, she has played only four games this season, losing all of them in the first round.

In her statement, Muguruza emphasized the importance of balancing her personal life and her professional career. “Spending time with family and friends, and it’s really been healthy and amazing, so I am going to lengthen this period till summer,” Muguruza said. Because of this decision, she will not compete in the upcoming French Open and Australian Open.

The stresses of a tennis season can have a significant impact on a player’s health and well-being, so Muguruza’s decision to take some time off is completely rational. She’ll be able to recharge her batteries and get ready for the latter half of the season thanks to the extended break.

Garbine Muguruza’s style of play, which emphasizes power and aggression, is well-suited to the slower surfaces of grass and clay. She serves well, has a powerful forehand, and has great footwork, allowing her to hit winners from anywhere on the court.

A professional since 2012, Muguruza won the Hobart International tournament on the WTA circuit for the first time in 2014. She played in the Wimbledon final in 2015, losing in straight sets to eventual champion Serena Williams. However, she came back and defeated Williams in the final of the 2016 French Open to win her first Grand Slam title.

With her 2017 Wimbledon victory over Venus Williams, Muguruza ascended to the top of the WTA rankings and claimed her second Grand Slam title. In addition to the Cincinnati Masters and the China Open, she has won several other prestigious tournaments throughout her career.

While Muguruza’s fans will be sad to see her retire from professional tennis, they will respect her decision to put her family first. The tennis community will be waiting with bated breath for her return this summer when she will undoubtedly be aiming to add more titles to her already lengthy trophy case.
