Australian Open: Kenin pushed back Muguruza win first Slam title

Australian Open 2020: Sofia Kenin beats Garbine Muguruza to win first grand slam title.






Now American Sofia Kenin is floating on an untouchable cloud after beating Garbiñe Muguruza in three sets to win the 2020 Australian Open women's singles, becoming the eighth first-time winner in the past dozen grand slam finals.

Sofia Kenin with final scores 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 win in Rod Laver Arena on Saturday evening – witnessed by, among many celebrities – when Kenin looked as if she might find the occasion too much for her while the Spaniard Muguruza, who won the 2016 French Open and 2017 Wimbledon titles, could not cope.


Kenin, the 21-year-old, not only is she the youngest American to win a major since Serena Williams 18 years ago, but the youngest Melbourne champion since Maria Sharapova in 2008.

What Kenis said after first Grand Slam title at Melbourn.



 My dream has officially come true, I can’t even describe this feeling. It’s so emotional and I worked so hard. I’m just so grateful to be standing here. Dreams come true. If you have a dream, go for it and it’s gonna come true.  I have worked so hard. These have been the best two weeks of my life.”




  An emotional quote of Spaniard Muguruza speech after loss at the Australian Open. 



A tough, tough loss. I have to say, it has been incredible playing out here in this environment, this court brings you energy. The crowd is what makes it special. We play for you guys, that’s the show. Thank you for coming.



added: "I'm not very happy about my performance. I think I had to play better today because she came up with a great level. I think at the important moments I didn't find my shots. I think she found her shots, I didn't found my shots.”
