Former Wimbledon champion Conchita Martinez compared that her partnership with former World No. 1 Garbine Muguruza to the former Hollywood star couple Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. The pair reunited in late November having worked earlier during for a brief period in 2017 and 2018.
Muguruza, a two-time Grand Slam champion, defeated ninth seeded Kiki Bertens 6-3, 6-3 on Monday and will meet 30th seeded Anastasia Pavlychenkova in the quarter-finals of the Australian Open in Melbourne. 47 year old Martinez commented, “It's like couples, we all want Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston to get back together, right?” You can see on the court now...
she's very, very aggressive, as (aggressive) as when she was playing her best tennis. I don't want to jinx it or say. I'm sure it's going to be tough times, it's been good times. It's great to enjoy the moment.
It's going well. Let's just enjoy what we have right now”. During the off-season, Muguruza climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and started her season by reaching the semi-finals of the WTA event in Shenzhen. She also had a virus which forced her to pull out of the quarter-finals of the WTA event in Hobart but she has since been in fine form in Melbourne.
Martinez won the Wimbledon Championships in 1994 and has been the captain of the Spanish Fed Cup and Davis Cup teams. She was also the runner-up at the 1998 Australian Open and the 2000 French Open events.
