Now, former world No 1 Muguruza announced some happy news. "We would like it to be next year, in the summer, near the beach and in Spain, because it is the place that most unites us," Muguruza told iHola!
Muguruza shares happy news while on a break from tennis
After going 12-17 in 2022 and starting the 2023 season with four consecutive defeats, Muguruza decided to abruptly stop her season.
In April, Muguruza took to Instagram to reveal why she was out since late January. “Spending time with family and friends and it's really been healthy and amazing so I am going to lengthen this period till summer. Therefore I'm going to miss the clay and grass season.
Thanks for all the lovely messages and will be updating you guys," Muguruza said in a message posted on her Instagram Story in early April. Muguruza, a two-time Grand Slam champion, had a rough 2022 season and her 2023 season didn't start in a great way either.
Just before taking a break from tennis, Muguruza suggested she needed to lower her expectations and be more humble considering her situation. “With tennis, one week it can go wrong, then next week it can go well, then everything changes again.
I think experience helps me to stay calm in the not-so-good moments when I haven’t been playing as well or results haven’t followed. That’s where the experience comes in; to stay calm and keep working hard.
And if you have to be a little more humble, that’s good too. It’s really a rollercoaster, the athlete’s career," Muguruza said in February. It remains to be seen when exactly Muguruza will return to tennis.
