Former World No. 1 Muguruza Not Yet Thinking About Tennis Comeback

Former World No. 1 Muguruza Not Yet Thinking About Tennis Comeback

by Sebastian Dahlman

Garbine Muguruza opted to take a break from tennis earlier this year, and she's not yet considering making a comeback.

Muguruza was quite open about her reasons for taking a break, and it was mostly due to fatigue. She had a terrible 2022 season and started 2023 with more disappointments, eventually just growing sick of it. She's not the only player who opted for a break, as we saw Bianca Andreescu and Amanda Anisimova do it, too.

Life away from the courts has been good for Muguruza as she was quite enjoying not having to deal with the stressful nature of being a tennis player. She enjoyed time at home, recovered well, visited places, and even got engaged.

There doesn't seem to be any desire to return to tennis and compete on the WTA Tour right now, even though she always admitted that she was not retired and would make a comeback. She confirmed in a recent interview with Spanish Newspaper AS that she's still not thinking about returning to tennis as she's buys making plans she couldn't do while being an active player.

I only think about enjoying this vacation to the fullest, I haven't thought about anything yet, it's September and there's a long way to go. I'm making plans that when I was competing in the circuit I couldn't do.

Muguruza on her future plans

We don't know what those plans are, but it's likely to do with her wedding. Any tennis plans are clearly on standby, so don't be surprised if Muguruza misses the start of the 2024 season.

The last match she played was on January 30th at the Lyon Open where she was beaten by Linda Noskova in two sets. She only played four matches this year and lost all of them. Her last win came on September 21st last year in Tokyo.
