Garbiñe Muguruza is not called a “giant killer” for nothing. She is a sight to see as she goes about defeating her better-known opponents on the court. Despite the recent “coaching” controversy, she has performed superbly at this year’s Wimbledon championships. With a net worth of $12.0 million and a new attitude to the game, Muguruza is a player to watch out for.

Even as controversy follows her, Garbiñe Muguruza is powering her way forward at Wimbledon 2017. Garbiñe Muguruza’s Wimbledon 2017 run has been overshadowed by allegations that she received coaching from outside while the match was going on. The in-match coaching claims became louder in her match against Svetlana Kuznetsova, which she won (6-3, 6-4) to secure a place in the Wimbledon 2017 semi-finals. Kuznetsova’s coach tried to bring the alleged coaching to the notice of the line umpire to no avail. However, that does not take away from the fact that Muguruza is a star player who is determined to win the Cup this time around. Keep reading for more details from our Garbiñe Muguruza wiki.

Born on October 8, 1993 in Caracas, Venezuela, to Jose Muguruza and Scarlet Blanco, Garbiñe Muguruza’s age is 23. Her father is Spanish-Basque while her mother is from Venezuela, leaving their daughter with a dual Venezuelan-Spanish nationality. Muguruza was a child prodigy and started playing tennis at the tender age of three. She trained at a tennis academy near Barcelona, Spain and her tennis idol was Serena Williams.

Big Game Hunter

Muguruza turned pro in 2011 and immediately served a warning to the top seeds by defeating players like Vera Zvonareva, Flavia Pennetta, Katerina Siniakova, and Caroline Wozniacki. Since then, Muguruza has won the French Open in 2016 and reached the finals of the Wimbledon in 2015. She regularly reached the third round and quarter-finals of other Grand Slam tournaments, and has beaten some very good players on the way. Her highest ranking came in June 2016, when she was seeded number two in the world in women’s tennis.

Muguruza’s flat, powerful ground strokes give her an advantage over her opponents and help her dominate baseline rallies. She also has a powerful serve that rattles those facing her. However, she is liable to make mistakes on the court and sometimes loses to lesser seeded players, giving the impression that she is an inconsistent player. However, Garbiñe Muguruza’s coach, Sam Sumyk, is working on it, and the results are slowly becoming evident. It’s no surprising that she has made it to the semi-finals of the Wimbledon 2017 thanks to her improved game. Muguruza’s career record is 293 matches won to 149 lost, meaning a winning percentage of 66.29%. Garbiñe Muguruza’s net worth is a healthy $12.0 million and is sure to grow since she is only 23 years old and yet to reach her peak.
