[ad_1]

World number nine Garbine Muguruza was pushed all the way by Croatian challenger Donna Vekic, winning 7-6(7-4) 7-6(7-5).

Both athletes stuck with their strong serves, with Vekic hitting 10 over the two sets and Muguruza sending down 8. The difference was in fine margins, with Vekic nailing just two of her seven break points, with Muguruza grabbing the same from four chances.

That clinical edge saw her scrape by with two tie-breaks in her favour.
