After being crowned a new Major singles champion at Roland Garros 2016, Garbine Muguruza has been anointed as The One. There’s a lot of pressure to be the next big thing in tennis. Every result she earns will be magnified from this point on. After defeating Serena Williams in straight sets in Paris, Mugu turned around and was bounced out of Mallorca in the first round, also in straight sets, by Kristen Flipkens. Garbine won’t get a break in her opening match of Wimbledon 2016 with the dangerous Camila Giorgi awaiting. On paper, Mugu is a threat to win the tournament. She is the #2 seed and the runner-up last year. But Giorgi is one of those wildly unpredictable players. Garbine could wipe her out 1 and 1…or get upset in swift fashion. I hope she gets past Camila. If she does, Mugu has a chance to go very deep with a favorable draw.
