Muguruza: 'Third round against Serena Williams can be a final everywhere'

Garbine Muguruza defeated Lauren Davis 6-1 6-3 to book a third round clash against Serena Williams in Indian Wells. The Spaniard was satisfied with her performance. "I think it was a great match, considering the windy conditions.

I think we played very well throughout the match, so I am happy to have won. Playing when it's windy makes everything very unpredictable because in the morning it's very cold and sometimes windy. For example, yesterday it was all the contrary, very hot.

But if you are a little bit prepared, you cannot get upset by it", said Muguruza. Analyzing her next round against Serena, Muguruza added: "It is a good match to have, it is great. These are the matches where I always feel emotions, the ones I want to play.

It could be any final on Tour, but here it came very early. We expect it to be a good match. Tomorrow (Saturday) I will focus on the doubles. I am playing doubles here with Carla (Suarez Navarro) and we want to enjoy ourselves together.

It will be good preparation." She also reflected on the importance of International women's day: "I am happy to have success in tennis, I feel very lucky. Tennis is the most equal sport you have now. I met other athletes and it's not the same, that's why I feel very lucky to be here and earn a living like this", concluded the two-time Major winner.
