Australian Open: Alizé Cornet surpasses world number 3 Garbine Muguruza

The French Alizé Cornet, 61st in the world, offered herself the world number 3 Garbine Muguruza 6-3, 6-3, this Thursday, January 20 in the 2nd round of the Australian Open.

The Spaniard made too many mistakes (33 against 16 for the French) to worry Alizé Cornet who was perfectly in her game.

The Frenchwoman did not have a single break point to save, while Muguruza was under pressure on almost each of her service games, with a total of 14 break points conceded in the game, 9 of which were saved.

“My state of mind was perfect. I was super focused, I felt like I was in a bubble. I am very happy,” said the Frenchwoman.

A nice birthday present

Alizé Cornet has thus offered a nice success two days before his birthday.

It is also the end of a curse, she who remained on three consecutive eliminations in the 2nd round in Melbourne.

This coming Saturday, on her 32nd birthday, she will face the Slovenian Tamara Zidansek or the Briton Heather Watson for a place in the round of 16.
