Garbiñe Muguruza: «Kalinina has played really well, I am surprised with her game»

«Physically, well, I have felt a slight complaint in my right calf, and for precaution, I wanted just to put some bandage. I will ask with my team to see if we have to do some kind of test. For the rest, it had been a strange match. I think if I had opportunities not to lose, I was not able to go for my opportunities. She has played really well. I am surprised with her game. I didn't know her at all. In those break moments, they didn't work, so I feel the match, I just let it go in a couple of points».

For the Spanish player it is a third loss in a row, all three on clay, against an opponent from Ukraine: last year she was defeated by Marta Kostyuk at Roland Garros and Elina Svitolina in Rome.

«It's clear that I try to show my happy face. Right now, because of course it's a sad match on my side, that I have just let it go, you know, I don't know exactly what I have missed. Perhaps, as I said, some sparks, some points have been played a couple matches before this one. I think a lot of people expect a lot of things of me in this tournament, and it's the tournament that I don't finish playing well. I think that in other levels the expectation were there. Sometimes I succeed, and other times I don't. But in this tournament it's hard for me, difficult for me. Every time that I come, it's like, Let's see if this year is the year, if I can control my nerves and emotions.

When I was on the court I was very stiff. As I said, I had a lot of tension, first set. Second set, I wasn't able to play with my tennis as I do in other tournaments. I think it's a mix of a lot of expectation, you know, trying to make it a reality, to not let down all the people that are here supporting me. I think that's negative for me. Each year I try to face it in a better way. Each year I try to be more interactive with the audience, but the truth is that it generates tension, and I don't manage to bring out my tennis in this tournament».
