I know the finals is still a few days away but the way Garbine Muguruza is playing shows that she is a very good bet to be one of the finalists in this year's French Open. I could actually sense the desperation in Flavia Pennetta's body language as she tried everything in the book to make a win against this youngster during their 4th round match today - this is considering that Flavia is a really experienced player and a former top 10 player at that.
I guess what Garbine has to do now is to have the belief that she deserves to be in the last few rounds of a grand slam. She has the game, she has the aggressive play, she has all the weapons that a grand slam champion has. She has one ace on her sleeve. She was the one who ousted Serena Williams (who in my book should be Garbine's finals opponent if Serena wins over Petra) from the French Open last year - and that should be a confidence booster!
