Muguruza beat Williams sisters to win major titles

Two-time Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza of Spain announced her retirement.

Muguruza, who reached No. 1 on Sept. 11, 2017, has not played since a first-round loss in Lyon, France, on Jan. 30, 2023. She went on hiatus after that tournament.

“I feel I am ready to retire, to open this new chapter in my life. A new era, a new life,” the 30-year-old said at a news conference in Madrid.

Muguruza holds the distinction of beating each of the Williams sisters to win a major title.

She beat Serena Williams in the French Open in 2016, and Venus Williams at Wimbledon the following year.

She lost to Sofia Kenin in the final at the Australian Open in 2020. She never advanced past the round of 16 at the U.S. Open.

Muguruza retires with a career record of 449-238, 10 titles and earnings of $24.8 million.
