A disappointed Garbine Muguruza insisted Sunday that she would still leave the Australian Open with a “good feeling” despite failing to convert two match points against Naomi Osaka in a fourth-round defeat.
The Spanish 14th seed, the losing finalist last year, was on the cusp of making the quarterfinals once more at 5-3, 40-15 in the third set.
But was unable to get across the finish line as Osaka reeled off four straight games to complete an improbable 4-6, 6-4, 7-5 comeback.
“I mean, really the difference I feel like it was one point,” she said.
“We had a lot of great points. I felt, of course, a little bit disappointing being 5-3 in the third set up, having match points
“It’s never a good feeling losing a match that you feel you could have changed in one second. But I left the court with a good feeling, very good feeling of this tournament in general.”
Two-time Grand Slam winner Muguruza had been in good form ahead of meeting Osaka and emerging as a serious championship contender.
She reached the final of the warm-up Yarra Valley Classic and had not dropped at a set in this year’s Open before meeting Osaka .
“When you’re younger, you’re disappointed,” said Muguruza, who lost in the final last year to Sofia Kenin.
“(But) I feel like it’s just little details here and there that makes a difference with the top players. I think I’m on the right path.
“Also the Australian swing, I played nine, 10 matches almost back-to-back. That was good. That was a good test for me physically, mentally,” she added.
“I’m pretty happy with my performances.”

World number one Ashleigh Barty signaled her intent ahead of the Australian Open with a straight-sets victory over in-form Garbine Muguruza to win the final of the Yarra Valley Classic warm-up event on Sunday.
Barty, playing with the roof shut on Margaret Court Arena, ramped up her preparations by wearing down the two-time Grand Slam champion 7-6 (7/3), 6-4 in one hour and 47 minutes to win her ninth WTA singles title.
The 24-year-old, competing in her first tournament in 11 months, received a confidence boost having struggled to rediscover her best in her earlier matches and then missing out on court time when Serena Williams pulled out of their semi-final.
“I couldn’t wait to get on the court quick enough,” said Barty, who hit 28 winners.
Muguruza had dropped just 10 games in her four earlier matches, in echoes of the 2017 form that took her to world number one, but she was unable to sustain her red-hot run.
“We’re very grateful to have fans after almost a year without crowds,” said the world number 15 to a smattering of spectators as intermittent rain fell outside.
