Garbine Muguruza’s list of upset victories is growing…
The 20-year-old half-Spanish-half-Venezuelan tennis player stunned second-seeded Simona Halep by beating her at China’s Wuhan Open on Tuesday, coming back for a 2-6, 6-2, 6-3 victory in the second round.
Muguruza, who beat top-ranked Serena Williams in the second round at this year’s French Open, dropped the first set in 35 minutes but won the first four games of the second set and the last four games of the third to advance at the inaugural tournament.
Muguruza, currently ranked No. 22 in the world, next faces Elina Svitolina in the third round.
