On Oct. 3, Garbine Muguruza strengthened her qualifying chances for the Akron WTA Finals Guadalajara after coming back from a set and a break down to win the last 10 games to defeat Ons Jabeur, 3-6, 6-3, 6-0 in the final of the Chicago Fall Tennis Classic, according to WTATennis.com .
The title is the Spaniard's second of the season, and ninth overallincluding the 2016 French Open and the 2017 Wimbledon Championships.
Talking with WTA Insider, Muguruza said, in part, "Playing Ons, we played recently at Wimbledon. It was a very good match, didn't go my way, but I knew that today I had to bring better and mentally be better. Even though I lost that first set I stood strong and found a way to navigate through the struggle and force the decider. I think my energy was much better and I wanted it so much and I think that showed up a lot in the third set."
The former top-ranked player in the world added, "People might think that this is a smaller event, but everything counts. Every win. There's so much behind the scenes that people don't seejust the amount of work you put in to hold a trophy, no matter what trophy it is."
