Muguruza moves past Kuznetsova at Wimbledon

Garbine Muguruza and Svetlana Kuznetsova are good friends

"I have to maybe work more the point, especially with those kind of players that are very good defensively, they're very solid".

Spain's Garbine Muguruza returns v Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova during the quarter-final match at Wimbledon yesterday. There have been big changes in me. "I was just trying to go for it, play my game", Muguruza told the BBC.

Muguruza certainly looks capable of lifting the Venus Rosewater Dish on Saturday and following in the footsteps of her coach and compatriot Conchita Martinez, who won in 1994.

"All the matches that I play against her, they're tough". I think Garbiñe recovered very good today.

Muguruza had proven her undoubted qualities in the last round by beating world No1 Angelique Kerber.

And she put in another new flawless performance here, breaking No7 seed at 2-1 before letting out a roar of delight when sealing the first set after Kuznetsova returned her powerful backhand into the net.

She was 40-15 on her opponent's serve in the third game but the Spaniard reeled off four points in a row and then broke to love to take a grip on the match she never looked like losing.

In the end, Muguruza came out on top to move on to her second Wimbledon semifinal, where she will either play Magdalena Rybarikova or CoCo Vandeweghe.

The 2016 French Open champ added: "The players are now here because they are playing well and deserve it".
