Garbiñe Muguruza (WTA 3) has its start at the WTA-tournament in the U.s. Indian Wells (hard/8.648.508 dollar) completely missed. The Spanish lost in the second round of Sachia Vickery (WTA 100) in three sets: 2-6, 7-5 and 6-1. “This is the most beautiful day of my career”, said the 22-year-old American, who never had a player from the top ten beat.
Simona Halep had less problems. The Romanian world number 1 beat the Czech Kristyna Pliskova (WTA 77) twice 6-4. Petra Kvitova (WTA 9) flirted against the Kzachse Yulia Putintseva (WTA 81) then again with the exit. Finally won the Czech after an exhausting 6-7 (4/7), 7-6 (7/3), 6-4.
Two other reekshoofden had less success. The British Johanna Konta (WTA 11) allowed themselves to be surprised by the Czech Marketa Vondrousova (WTA 54) 7-6 (7/5), 6-4. The Greek Maria Sakkari (WTA 58) sent the Australian Ash Barty (WTA 21/), sixteenth seed, 6-4 and 6-2 at home.
Kyrgios let mitre go with elleboogblessure
The men will be Nick Kyrgios (ATP 20) not participate in the ATP tournament in Indian Wells (hard/7.972.535 dollar). The 22-year-old Australian remains at the dork with his elbow.
“I feel really bad about my job because Indian Wells is one of my favorite tournaments”, responded Kyrgios on Twitter. “But my elbow is just not restored. I give myself as long as necessary to return, but I am still not ready to be in league to act.”
Lucky loser Matteo Berrettini (ATP 108) takes the place of Kyrgios. The Italian takes over the Saturday in the second round against the Russian Daniil Medvedev (ATP 57).
