Why Muguruza’s push in the WTA Finals is special

Garbine Muguruza is one of the best players to make her case in the WTA Final. The Spanish star continues to shine in the big stage as she clinched her win in the Chicago Fall Tennis Classic. That gave her a much stronger chance at the WTA FInal in the coming months.

This win marked Garbine’s second title of the season and ninth overall. This also pushed her to the sixth spot in the Porsche Race to the WTA Finals. The win also marks the second time that she has won more than one title in a season, as she won two in 2017.

The star said her run was a little bit weird but it was a win that she will never take for granted. Garbine looks to get a hot start in the BNP Paribas Open. She also wants to win in the WTA 1000 event after this tricky week in Chicago.

Garbine played well in her games in the Chicago Classic and while some will say that it is an easy win for her, she is just glad to win it to add to her win tally in 2021.

‘It's a weird feeling but I'm happy that we managed it well mentally also, not being too stressed about it. I'm happy that I won this final’, the star said. ‘Of course, I would have liked to do better results at the Grand Slams but so far I feel like I've played good matches, a good level at any part of the year’.

As a former world no. 1 and two-time major winner, this WTA 500 event looked like a small win for Garbine. The star, however, said it was more than just a run for her as it was one of the series that lifted her pace well into a higher level.

For Garbine, every win counts. There’s so much action behind the scenes that fans don’t see. The star knows that it was all about the effort she gave to win the title. It must have felt great for her to win a trophy she worked hard for, and it fuels her drive to keep on winning games.

‘There are so many girls playing for it that week’, the star said. ‘To feel like I got it, this week I'm the better player, it's a special feeling’.

All of her efforts are focused on her main goal of making it to the WTA Finals. Garbine worked hard all season-long and she deserves this win. Her success in the 2021 WTA Tour only proves that there is still more to expect in her coming games. This should make her a top pick in the WTA Finals where she hopes to give the best of her game and cap off her run with a huge title win.
