Garbine Muguruza

Zhuhai, China

Q. WANG/G. Muguruza
6-2, 6-0

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Have you been affected by the change of the player, I mean, Qiang Wang replaced Ms. Keys? What's your opinion about Qiang Wang's performance today?
GARBINE MUGURUZA: I mean, these things happen. I was ready to play a tough match, either it's Keys or Wang, whoever it is. But, no, I think I played a very tough opponent today. Maybe she was also a little bit surprised that she was playing and a little bit more relaxed. I think her performance is excellent.

Q. I have seen that during your training, your ankle was wrapped. Was that an injury? If it is, does that affect your performance today?
GARBINE MUGURUZA: No, I've been playing so many years with my ankle wraps. I twist a lot my ankle. It's a way of protecting them and taking care of them.

Q. In terms of the change in opponent, did that throw you off at all?
GARBINE MUGURUZA: No, I think I was expecting a tough match. I know both players, so it was just a quick change of mindset. I think the performance from Wang today, I said before, was excellent because maybe -- you know, she's playing great tennis this year. Maybe she was a little more relaxed. We played before. Also was a tough match. Yeah, I think she's on fire.

Q. You played such a physical and emotional match last night, was it difficult to come down from that match? It was a late night match and then get up for this match.
GARBINE MUGURUZA: It's always tough because it was a battle. But I was actually excited. I was so close to lose yesterday that I was so excited to keep playing today. You're playing for a final. I felt a little tired, of course. It was just my body. My mindset was ready to fight. Yeah, I tried. She was playing incredible shots and not missing anything.
