  • Garbine Muguruza speaks after a first round win at the 2016 US Open.

    SOUNDBITE (English): Garbine Muguruza (def. Elise Mertens 6-2, 0-6, 3-6) - (on atmosphere at US Open)

    "Yes, I felt there's more movement, more noise, more stuff. But it's well known also because of the environment and the crowd and the vibes, I don't know, that feeling that brings New York. I think it's also special to feel. I don't know. There's a lot of people. They're watching you. Maybe it's not as silence as Wimbledon, that everybody is like this, but I enjoy a lot also."

    SOUNDBITE (English): Garbine Muguruza (def. Elise Mertens 6-2, 0-6, 3-6) - (on higher expectations playing seeded 3rd)

    "I think is different. If I would say no it would not make sense. Someone that, I don't know, has reached the last rounds of the tournaments or, you know, the important moments every time you go to a tournament, you believe, Maybe I can do it again. You have more expectations, that's for sure. But I got to play with that. I have to go on the court, try to don't have in my mind all the time, Hey, let's go for this match, let's try to win this. That's the way. For sure maybe a lot of people is talking. All this kind of stuff that I cannot control. If I cannot control it I don't put it in my bag, you know. I'm minimizing and doing everything very simple around me."
