Garbine Muguruza opts for relaxed approach at French Open

If there's a player who shouldn't be afraid of Serena Williams' return to Grand Slam tennis at the French Open, it's certainly Garbine Muguruza.

Despite an inconsistent clay-court season so far, the two-time Grand Slam champion from Spain is among the top contenders at Roland Garros. She won her first major title two years ago by defeating Williams in the final.

Muguruza and Williams have played against each other five times, and the Venezuela-born Muguruza prevailed twice, both at the French Open. Muguruza's maiden victory over Williams in her second French Open appearance back in 2014 was a surprise, routing the defending champion 6-2, 6-2 in the second round.
