Garbine Muguruza got the better of the most interesting second round of the WTA in Doha. The Spanish tennis player eliminated her opponent in the first set and then wasted the clear advantage gained in the second.
After Aryna Sabalenka’s tie-break in the second set, Muguruza put aside the ghosts of the match played at the Australian Open against Naomi Osaka and bent the Belarusian without suffering.
Angelique Kerber fell short of expectations and lost to an excellent Anett Kontaveit in less than an hour. No problem for Petra Kvitova and Elina Svitolina, who respectively defeated Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Misaki Doi in two sets. Despite the 6-4, 6-2, Victoria Azarenka had to fight more than expected against Laura Siegemund, but she finished the match with great personality in almost two hours.
