10 de marzo de 2018

Los Angeles, United States, Mar 9 (efe-epa).- Spain's Garbine Muguruza said in a press conference on Friday that her second-round loss at the Indian Wells tennis tournament to Sachia Vickery of the United States - ranked 100th in the world - was frustrating.

Muguruza said she would learn a lot from the game and see what went wrong, adding that she was playing well and was in control but the match went out of her hands.

She said the loss was "a little frustrating," but she was going to work hard and focus on the next tournament, in Miami.

The World No.3 said that Vickery played very well on key points and had a good physique, adding that players without much experience made up for it with motivation, and this was the case on Friday.

Vickery beat Muguruza in their first-ever encounter in the second round of Indian Wells, coming back from a set behind to end the game 2-6, 7-5, 6-1 in 2 hours 12 minutes.

This was Vickery's first win against a top-20 opponent.

The American, after losing the first set and trailing 2-4 in the second, fought back with aggressive and precise strokes from behind the baseline.

The last game of the second set lasted more than 10 minutes, and was won by Vickery after four set points.

Muguruza surrendered in the last set to her American opponent, who will play Japan's Naomi Osaka in the next round.

Vickery said it was hard for her to believe that she had won and it was the best moment of her life, making the crossed arms sign from the movie "Black Panther".
