Muguruza reaches final in Brazil
Florianopolis, Brazil (SportsNetwork.com) - Second seed Garbine Muguruza secured a berth in Saturday's final at the $250,000 Brasil Tennis Cup.
The rising Spaniard whipped Kazakhstan's Yaroslava Shvedova 6-2, 6-3 at this clay court event.
Muguruza's opponent on Saturday will be top-seeded fellow Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro or third-seeded Czech Klara Zakopalova, who was last week's runner-up in Rio de Janeiro.
The 20-year-old Venezuelan-born Muguruza reached her first-ever WTA final in Hobart last month, capturing a title in Australia.
