I, like many other tennis fans, have just found out that Garbine Muguruza has announced her retirement. I think it was a long-thought-out decision, since he played his last official match in February 2023 in Lyon.

I, like many other tennis fans, have just found out that Garbine Muguruza has announced her retirement. I think it was a long-thought-out decision, since he played his last official match in February 2023 in Lyon. These data indicate that last year, the great Spanish tennis player had to experience feelings of strangeness and discomfort, at least in comparison with the not-so-distant years in which she starred in many sports records of our country.

He retires at the age of 30, an age that would have been perfectly normal in other decades, but currently, in light of the changes that have taken place in our sport, is seen as premature.

My first feeling, as a tennis lover and connoisseur of the professional circuit, was some sadness because I thought we would never get to see her again on the women's tennis circuit. But once I read his statements, I had no choice but to applaud the decision that was not easy for him to turn the page on such an important era at all.

It seems that Garbiñe is not willing to continue giving up some of the things that are popular to her and that the competition has prevented her from enjoying. For women who want to be mothers, and I sense from what you said this may be your case, competition becomes a huge obstacle. I'm glad, no matter what the circumstances, that you made a decision that will definitely make you happier.

Garbiñe Muguruza was a tennis player with an enviable physique. She had excellent technique with all her strokes and aggressive play, and watching her play tennis was truly amazing. After her remarkable victory at Roland Garros in 2016, over the almost unbeaten Serena Williams, a wave of deep admiration and a feeling that a new golden era was approaching for her in the world of tennis and in the Spanish sports press in women's tennis was launched.

In that unforgettable match, our tennis player not only managed to defeat the North American player, but she was able to overcome her and give the impression that she was superior. It would have been easy to conclude that we were facing a future world number one and that, given her youth at just 22 years old, she would lead the world rankings. classification For several years. Those expectations were fulfilled by seeing her in the top job just a few months later when she also became champion at the prestigious Wimbledon Championships.

But the truth is that, from that moment on, Garbiñe was unable to remain stable. His game became somewhat erratic and unpredictable and he began to combine good victories with unexpected defeats. When a tennis player shows the great level she did in these two years, 2016 and 2017, one has to think that this lack of regularity was more due to possible internal contradictions than pure tennis problems.

Without a doubt, I will remember many moments when I enjoyed playing tennis and celebrated his well-deserved victories. Today I restored some of them on my computer and was once again impressed by the beauty of his game and the very high level he was able to provide against the toughest competitors in recent years. I can only thank you for all of this and wish you success in this new phase that begins from now on.
