Muguruza in for Kerber showdown

LONDON – Garbine Muguruza is one of only four women left in the women’s draw to have made it to a Wimbledon final but two years on from that feat, she still wonders quite how she did it.
The Spaniard, who thrashed Romania’s Sorana Cirstea 6-2 6-2 on Saturday, will meet Angelique Kerber in the fourth round on Monday in a battle of the last two Wimbledon runner-ups.
Like Kerber, she was felled by Serena Williams in the final but the fact that she even got a chance to play the title match in 2015 continues to amaze her.
“I never feel that comfortable in grass. Every time I start the grass season, I’m like, ‘how the hell did I (reach) that final? This kind of feeling,” said the 2016 French Open champion.
