Muguruza looking forward to 2020 Olympics. Will she play mixed with Nadal?

Garbine Muguruza said she is looking forward to compete at the Olympic Games in July 2020 in Tokyo, Japan. The two-time Major winner is ready to deliver a big tennis level after going through many ups and downs in 2019. "I would like to be at the Olympics because it's very special.

This year a bit of everything happened so it was tough. I am happy the season has ended and now we will start a new year, with a new ambition, being fresh. That's what I am thinking about. Being surrounded by professional people and starting to work to get to the highest will be the key, which is always my goal.

When you were at the top you always want to be back but now I have to go little by little", said Muguruza who lives and trains in Switzerland. In 2016 Rio de Janeiro Muguruza was supposed to play mixed doubles with Rafael Nadal, but the Mallorcan eventually withdrew due to a wrist injury.

He only played singles and men's doubles. We will see if Muguruza and Nadal may pair up this time in Japan. Explaining her US Open loss to Alison Riske earlier this year, Muguruza had said: "If I would know the recipe, believe me, I would do it all the time (smiling).

I did perform very high level of tennis. It's very difficult to perform that. And like we were talking before, I feel like now everybody is playing great. You know, I feel like I come to the US Open and you feel all the girls can win and they're playing incredible. Everybody is a threat. Yeah, I mean, that's really the difference now."
