Watch Muguruza's wonderful reaction to Euro 2016 question
As Garbiñe Muguruza prepares for the start of Wimbledon, the tennis star was seen in playful mood when asked if she's been following Spain's progress at the Euros.
Recently crowned French Open champion Garbiñe Muguruza turned up to her pre-Wimbledon press conference in a Spain football shirt on Saturday, so the conversation naturally turned from tennis to football.
"We are crazy about football"
Asked if she was keeping a close eye on her country's progress at Euro 2016, the star said: "For Spanish people, we are crazy [about football]. If you don’t follow football [in Spain], then you’re dead. You don’t have conversation."
Muguruza v Giorgi
As Spain take on Italy in the last 16 on Monday afternoon (18.00 CET), Muguruza also opens her Wimbledon campaign against Italian Camila Giorgi, with the matches potentially clashing. Regardless...Muguruza will be hoping she can celebrate a double Spanish victory by the close of play on Monday.
