Hardly anyone is noticing, but Spaniard Garbine Muguruza is tripping merrily along at Wimbledon, toward what is looking more and more like a potential second grand slam title.
On Monday, she vanquished world number 1 Angelique Kerber, 4-6 6-4 6-4, easing her way into the quarterfinals and simultaneously bumping Kerber from the No. 1 ranking. On Tuesday, Muguruza dismissed the No. 7 seed and former two time grand slam winner Svetlana Kuznetsova, 6-3 6-4 for a spot in the semifinals. It’s looking more and more like it could be Garbine’s year at the Big W, despite numerous problems with injuries again in 2017, including this grass court season. Next up: Coco Vandeweghe or Magdelena Rybarikova. Stay tuned.
