Muguruza Retains Monterrey Title As Azarenka Pulls Out With Injury

Emeka Nnaike

Spain’s Garbine Muguruza successfully defended her Monterrey Open title on Sunday night when Victoria Azarenka pulled out, injured from her first WTA singles final in three years.

Second seed Muguruza was leading the match between the two former world number ones 6-1 3-1 when Azarenka decided she was unable to continue because of an injury to her right leg.

“It’s unfortunate I couldn’t give my best today, but I tried my hardest,” a tearful Azarenka, who had not previously reached final since the birth of her first child in December 2016, said at the presentation.
