Muguruza: Committed To Competing

Garbiñe Muguruza has devoted time to Zumba fitness classes in recent months.

When the WTA Tour resumes next month, Muguruza is committed to competing everywhere she can.

More: ATP, WTA Cancel Asian Swing

The Australian Open finalist says she's aiming to play the US Open followed by the European clay-court swing.

"[I plan] to play the American tournaments in preparation for the US Open and the clay tour that would end at Roland Garros," Muguruza told Cesar Seguros, the Spanish Insurance company she represents as a brand ambassador. "In short, all possible tournaments if the situation allows it."

The ATP and WTA Tours announced the cancellation of the fall Asian swing on Thursday, which comes days after the Citi Open in Washington, DC pulled the plug. Muguruza said she understands players will have mixed emotions about traveling to New York City for the US Open, but believes the USTA is making the right call trying to play the Flushing Meadows major.

"[It] is going to be difficult," Muguruza said. "It is better to play than not, but I understand that there are mixed feelings."

The two-time Grand Slam champion has posted a 16-4 record in 2020, including reaching her first Australian Open final where she fell to American Sofia Kenin. The US Open is the only major where Muguruza has yet to reach the final.

Muguruza, who has been training in Geneva, believes when the pro circuit resumes next month the mental game will be a key component to success.

"It is a matter of resistance and mental strength," Muguruza said. "Whoever is stronger will have the easiest path to victory."
