Garbine Muguruza Defends Monterrey Crown

Tennis- WTA International- Monterrey Open Final- Club Sonoma Monterrey Mexico

Defending champion Garbine Muguruza awaits at the WTA International tournament in Monterrey following the second seed's 6-2 6-3 win over Magdalena Rybarikova.

Muguruza wins 6-1, 3-1.

The victory handed Muguruza her maiden trophy of the season and seventh of her career, while it marked the first time she has defended a title.

The Slovak was hobbled by an apparent left leg injury in the match, receiving a medical timeout after the first seven games, and her varied, counter-attacking tennis was largely diffused by the Spaniard's power game.

For former world No 1 and two-time Grand Slam victor Azarenka, it was her first final in three years, after giving birth and being embroiled in a custody battle for her son. "It's always a good feeling", Muguruza said on-court after the match.

Victoria Azarenka used her superior serving and punishing groundstrokes to upset top seed Angelique Kerber 6-4, 4-6, 6-1 and advance to Sunday's final of the Monterrey Open against Garbine Muguruza.

Now I'm no fan of hers, and no, it's not a "racist" claim as pro-Markle zealots would allege, it's just that I find her fake. The 37-year-old is expecting to have little medical interventions as she welcomes her first child.

Muguruza has won her 7th title match in Monterrey this weekend after Vika Azarenka has to forfeit during the match.

Keys' previous two losses to Wozniacki had been on hard courts when she failed to win a set.

Her win also completed a superb week in SC, where she defeated three Grand Slam champions - Jelena Ostapenko, Stephens and Wozniacki - to take the title.

Azarenka was grimacing and stretching after almost every point and, after Muguruza broke for a 3-1 lead, the two-time Australian Open champion chose to call it quits.

Wozniacki - playing in her third Charleston final, having finished as runner-up in 2009 - said Keys was "just too good".
