American tennis player Sofia Kenin defeated Garbine Muguruza (Spain) 2 – 1 (4 – 6, 6 – 2, 6 – 2) in the final of the Australian Open 2020 in Melbourne Park.
Russian-American tennis player Sofia Kenin is a name that is still very strange to female tennis fans who continue to assert their talent after defeating world No. 1 player Ashleigh Barty in the semi-finals.
Entering her first Grand Slam final in her career, the 21-year-old American entered the stage quite impressively, but with her experience, Muguruza did not let the opponent surprise him. The Spaniard soon broke and took the lead in sec 1.
In sec 2, Sofia Kenin made a great effort and made good use of the opportunities provided, especially the young player who developed the strengths from the left shots along the line to quickly win easily 6 – 2 thereby defeating the Spanish opponent 2 – 1 after 123 minutes of play.
Upstream of impressive victory, Sofia Kenin was first crowned the Australian Open Championship 2020 and this is the first time in this American tennis player’s career to win the Grand Slam title
Kevin is the youngest tennis player to win the title
Kevin has become the youngest tennis player to win the Australian Open in the last 12 years at the age of 21 years and 80 days.
This championship earned Kenin $ 2.86 million and 2,000 reward points. An American tennis player will rise to No. 7 in the world, becoming the youngest American tennis player in the top 10 since April 1999.
This is the third time Kenin has won against Muguruza. The first time was at China Open 2019. Meanwhile, this failure made the champion 2 titles (Roland Garros 2016, Wimbledon 2017) Garbine Muguruza could not become the first seedless player to win the Australian Open since Serena Williams in 2007.
