CINCINNATI, OH, USA - Spanish star Garbiñe Muguruza has spoken of her shock and sadness after the terror attack in Barcelona, which left 13 people dead and another 100 injured.

"I couldn't believe it. I have been so many times to that place, so many times. It's like a main street with a lot of shops and people," Muguruza said.

"I was very surprised because you always hear what happened in Paris and in London. But now, I've been so many times to this place, it's like my home.

"I've been there so many times. So it really shocked me. Really shocked me.

"I'm just sad for the people that were there. I feel like if you're in the wrong place at the wrong time, it can happen anywhere."

 

Muguruza, 23, found out about the attacks during the rain delay in her round-of-16 victory against Madison Keys at the Western and Southern Open.

Other players were quick to share their sympathies on social media.
