Garbiñe Muguruza was eliminated in the first round of the WTA 250 tournament in Lyon after losing to Linda Noskova in 70 minutes 6-1, 6-4.
The fourth tournament he played Garbine Muguruza during this year 2023 and the third year in which he had been invited to participate in the main draw. Two in Adelaide and now in Lyon. Chance brought to him that he had to see which tennis player from the previous stage he had to face, and of the ranked it was Linda Noskova who clashed with the Spanish. One of the names this early year to reach the final of the WTA 500 series in Adelaide, where she lost to Aryna Sabalenka.
Noskova manages to be more perfect
The Czech player, who already knew what it’s like to compete at this stage after defeating Rouvroy and Viktoria Kuzmova in the previous stage, started the match much better. Be more involved and be the one who dominated the meeting. In just 25 minutes, he reached a powerful 6-1 as he dominated in that aggressive game. At that time, the Spanish did not have no reaction whatsoever and lost serve twice.
Muguruza had that improvement that added another plus to her conditions on the court. He found more winners, dug more and was the result. He stood in front at the break and ended up 0-3. An opportunity for a double break to reach the second spot of the betting, but not capitalizing on it, resulted in Noskova breaking Garbiñe.
The irregularity was valid in Garbiñe’s game. Good shots but can’t be decisive. He had a chance to move you forward again, but another lost adventure. Linda, who also enjoys those big shots that make it easy to create winners, made her force her opponent. Noskova reached the final break at the WTA 250 in Lyon against the outgoing Muguruza.
