Garbine Muguruza: 'I admire Roger Federer a lot. He doesn't even sweat'

Interviewed by Cadena Ser during 'El Larguero' programme, Garbine Muguruza commented on several interesting topics. The World No. 2 feels WTA Tour is very balanced: ''Many players can be No. 1 and things change. Before, Williams (Sisters) dominated and now we are like six players around. The consistency is important, but for my personality and game style, the first thing is not the consistency but being aggressive and taking risks. I have to be more consistent and improve details. When you are at a very high level, it's about details, be faster with feet, improving volley, training the serve, a shot where Williams sisters are the best to hit. I train all the days thinking about being No. 1 again.'

Then she spoke about "Big Three". On Novak Djokovic, she remembers most the time when 'it was impossible that he lost a match'. On Rafael Nadal, she said that is a big fan of him, 'what I like the most is his spirit. I see him on the court and your heart beats'. On Roger Federer, she added: 'I see myself much in Federer's technique. He doesn't even sweat. I admire him a lot.'

Finally, Muguruza commented on how she deals with losses: 'Now I handle them better before I could even be able not to speak for two days.'

Muguruza is focused on tennis but charity as well. On the Universal Children's Day, the World No. 2 and two-time Grand Slam winner started a new fundraising page on Room to Read website to help unlucky kids and make them get a better quality life. 'I am excited to team up with Room to Read as an #ActiveforEducation ambassador!', Muguruza wrote on her page. 'I'm getting active for education on and off the court by supporting Room to Read’s literacy and girls’ education programs which benefit millions of children in countries around the world. My goal is to support Room to Read's literacy program and the creation of a brand new school library in Banlech Prasat Primary School in Prey Veng Province, Cambodia.'

The Caracas native was granted the 'Personality of the Year' Award in Madrid: ‘I always say that if you make sacrifices for what you want, it is always worth the rewards', she said.
