Garbiñe Muguruza had an emotional rollercoaster of a time in the third round at the Miami Open as she managed to save a match point before going on to win 0-6, 7-6 (8-6), 6-4 against Christina McHale. The Spaniard was on the point of tears on several occasions and was also given a severe ticking off from her coach Sam Sumyk.

Muguruza's coach reacts

The coach came down to the court, allowed under WTA rules, and told Muguruza: "Don't tell me to shut the fuck up ever again!" The player could only apologise for her previous outburst, repeating "I'm sorry, I'm sorry", to her coach.

Muguruza has had on court incidents with her coach previously. At Indian Wells last year, she broke down in tears and told Sumyk: "I don't want to play any more. Do you think I'm going to fight for this at 0-3 down in the second set?"

Shuai Zhang next up for Muguruza

Muguruza will play Chinese player Shuai Zhang this Saturday.
