The Kings of Spain received the tennis player Garbiñe Muguruza at the Palacio de la Zarzuela after being proclaimed champion in the teachers’ tournament of the WTA on November 17 in Guadalajara (Mexico), becoming the first Spanish to achieve it.
Felipe and Letizia greeted Muguruza in the Magnolias Room, where they posed with her before having a brief encounter.
With this audience, the Kings wanted to show their appreciation for the triumph of the Spanish tennis player in the WTA Finals, the old women’s Masters, which joins that of Roland Garros, in 2016, and that of Wimbledon, in 2017.
After her victory against Estonian Annet Kontaveit, the 28-year-old player will end the year as third in the world ranking of tennis players, led by Australian Ashleigh Barty.
The Spanish-Venezuelan tennis player was accompanied to the audience with the king by the president of the Royal Spanish Tennis Federation, Miguel Díaz, and the representative of Garbiñe in Spain, Cecilia Casla.
