Garbiñe Muguruza will remember the 2016 season as the year of her first Grand Slam. On June 4th, the Spanish-Venezuelan tennis player beat Serena Williams to win the French Open. It was the highlight of a fairly inconsistent season in which she was forced to withdraw from several tournaments. The overall result is positive, however: “Everything that could have happened did this season, but it will help me become a better player,” she notes. This year she received her highest WTA ranking – 2nd the week of June 6th. Will 2017 be Garbiñe’s year? “No one knows what will happen in 2017. Let’s hope it will be my year again. I think this year was very good, just like last year, so I just hope to be at the same level in 2017,” she says.
