“I Quickly Get Out Of The Bad Energy And Just Start Thinking Faster”: Muguruza
Having played back-to-back to finals in Middle East swing, Muguruza exited a little bit earlier from the Miami Open 2021. She fell in the fourth round to Canadian Bianca Andreescu in the three sets. In a recent interview, Spaniard was asked how she is dealing with her losses these days.
The former Wimbledon champion replied, “I would say yes, not because I accept them or anything like that. Still, it’s just that I waste less energy on being upset or being disappointed. I quickly get out of the bad energy and start thinking faster about what I have to do. OK, what’s next? I don’t stay no more in dark spaces anymore.”
“The wins and losses are more acceptable once you get more mature, and it takes less energy. But just in general, knowing more myself and knowing how do I have to work and how do I have to kind of act and proceed to put myself in the right direction earlier than probably before,” Muguruza added.
