Muguruza, Jabeur move on to Chicago

CHICAGO (WNN) – Garbine Muguruza and Ons Jabur won in straight sets in the second round of the Chicago Fall Tennis Classic on Tuesday.

Muguruza said the tough conditions were challenging during her 6-4, 6-4 win over 21-year-old American Ann Lee.

“It was a difficult match simply because (Chicago) is a windy city or a windy city,” Muguruza said. “Just controlling the mindset and not getting too frustrated because it is difficult. With 6-4, 6-4, it was very tight. I think the match was pretty even because of the conditions, but I’m glad I stayed calm at 5-4, serving for each set, and I managed to close them.

Tunisia’s No. 6 Jabeur defeated Su-Wei Seh 6-1, 6-0 in 46 minutes.
