I don’t know what it feels like to be No1, but I do know what it feels like to win a Grand Slam.” She further said, “I’m human, I feel pressure, I can have a love-hate relationship with tennis. When you win everything it is beautiful; when you lose everything is darker. It’s hard.” “I’ve always dreamed of winning seven matches in a row because it is something extra special. Hopefully one day I can get to a No1 position, and then I can compare,” she conveyed. Cheers to Garbine Muguruza on her grand Wimbledon win for the first time!
