Garbine Muguruza: Beaten finalist at Wimbledon earlier this year

Garbine Muguruza: Beaten finalist at Wimbledon earlier this year

The Spaniard really announced her arrival on the world stage after reaching the final at Wimbledon.

Although the 21-year-old from Barcelona was beaten in straight sets by Serena Williams, her run to the final was impressive with victories over Angelique Kerber, Caroline Wozniacki and Agnieszka Radwanska among others.

It was enough to put her in the world's top 10 for the first time in her career.

An aggressive hitter, Muguruza has only one WTA title to her name so far which was the Hobart International back in January 2014, but she is being widely tipped to add to that success.

She was troubled by an ankle injury at the start of the year which caused her to skip a couple of events, but she was fit and firing for the Australian Open where she reached the fourth round for the second consecutive year before falling to Serena Williams.

Muguruza reached her second consecutive French Open quarter-final, defeating Kerber and Flavia Pennetta en route, before losing to the eventual runner-up, Lucie Safarova.

The previous year she had put out Serena on the French clay, before being beaten by eventual winner Maria Sharapova.
