Day one in Dubai.I do not mean to be overly critical of Garbine, I am a huge fan of hers, but that was as sloppy a first set as they come.She gave up her early lead of 3-1 in that set so disappointingly. Watch at 0-15 down how she pulls an easy forehand wide. There was a very open court to her left in which to play that shot. The only positive thing for Garbine was her opponent was not at her best as well. Shot of the match. Muguruza 4-3 up first set Begu serving (Deuce adv Garbine. Begu hit a forehand way high above the net which Garbine pounced on with aplomb with a rasping back hand winner down the line. Muguruza would take the set 6-3. The second set saw the sloppiness of the first manifesting again for the lady from Spain. She was broken in her first service game to hand a 2-0 lead to Begu. Only for Begu to hand back the break so it was soon 2-2. Garbine producing magic such as the forehand down the line in the third game 30-30. Garbine had 13 break point opportunities in this game but only converted 5. The match would have been a whole lot less than the 126 minutes it took Muguruza to win it had she converted them. Final set 7-5 to Garbine. She meets Amanda Anisimova in the round of 32 next.
