Garbiñe Muguruza Blanco (Spanish pronunciation: , Basque pronunciation: ; born 8 October 1993 in Caracas, Venezuela) is a Spanish-Venezuelan professional tennis player who represents Spain in tennis competitions and turned professional in 2012. She has won three singles titles, most notably at the 2016 French Open where she beat world No. 1 Serena Williams in the final. By virtue of winning her first Grand Slam title in Paris, Muguruza became just the second player of either gender born in the 1990s to win a Grand Slam title after Petra Kvitová first did so at the 2011 Wimbledon Championships. She achieved her career-high world ranking of No. 2 after the French Open.
Equipped with powerful groundstrokes and an aggressive game style, Muguruza first came into prominence by reaching the fourth round of the 2014 Australian Open, where she scored an upset over Caroline Wozniacki en route. She then defeated Serena Williams in the second round of the French Open that same year, beating the world No. 1 in straight sets en route to the quarterfinals. In 2015, she won the China Open and reached her first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon. She also qualified for her first WTA Finals in 2015, scoring a perfect winning record in the round-robin stage before falling out in the semifinals to eventual champion Agnieszka Radwańska.
Muguruza has been successful in doubles, winning five titles, finishing runner-up at the 2015 WTA Finals and reaching the 2014 French Open semifinals. She achieved those results with her compatriot, Carla Suárez Navarro.
