Muguruza takes WTA Cincinnati title, denies Halep No. 1

Garbine Muguruza denied a number-one ranking to Simona Halep with a steamrolling 6-1, 6-0 victory over the Romanian to win the title at the Cincinnati Masters on Sunday.

Spain's Muguruza eased past top seed Karolina Pliskova 6-3 6-2, while Halep beat Sloane Stephens 6-2 6-1. "So finally, this year, you know, I improved that".

This is the 23-year-old Spaniard's third victory against Halep in their four confrontations as pros, and with the win she prevented the Romanian from becoming the new world No. 1 female. "I think I did this thing very, very well today".

Haleps coach, Darren Cahill, told ESPN that the French Open loss still haunts her, saying: “Theres still a little leftover residue from Paris. "It takes some time to get over that".

"When I feel on court that I got dominated a little bit - I felt that I can not control the points - and that's maybe why I got a little bit down in my confidence", Halep said.

While neither was playing for the No. 1 spot like Halep in the first match, there was plenty at stake in the ATP final.

"I feel pretty good", Pliskova said. "That's why I got down in my confidence". All I want is to win the tournaments. But I wanted to win. "What can I do?"

Czech defending champion Pliskova led Italian qualifier Camila Giorgi 3-0 when play was suspended while former and future world No. 1 Nadal and compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas never started their third-round match before the final drenching began.

"I'm definitely not thinking at all about number one", Muguruza said. "I still have a chance, so I will work for it, and maybe one day, it will be there". The 20-year-old has spent the year since Rio de Janeiro taking a break from the sport and says she is in no hurry to make any sort of concrete decision.

"Nobody believes because they won the last tournament they are going to go there and win", she said. So it really shocked me. "Beats not having it".

"Whatever comes I will just take it", said Pliskova. And, yeah, I think after that, that break in the second set was - it was a tough game.

"So I understand - I think it's normal". In the victory, Muguruza won 80 percent of her first serve points and 44 percent of her second serve points. Muguruza broke again in the fifth game and held serve to claim the crown.

"Patience. That's what it is", Dimitrov said. I just had to be very composed and use every opportunity that I had. My level was very high. I thought he played a high-level match. It was 6-1 6-0 and Muguuza has just announced herself as a genuine contender for the summit especially at US Open. I have been so many times to that place, so many times.
