I’d like to pay a small tribute to Garbiñe Muguruza, Roland Garros 2016 champion, in the form of a photo gallery, with pictures I took of her at BNP Paribas Open and Roland Garros, both in 2014.
I had the chance to meet Garbiñe in Indian Wells in 2013. As soon as I found out her mother was from Venezuela and her father from Spain, I wanted to meet her. We share a “Venezuelan connection”: I was born in Spain and when I was 3 years old, I moved with my parents to Venezuela. In the case of “Garbi”, she was born in Venezuela and moved to Spain when she was still young.
