TENNIS- Spain’s former world number one Garbine Muguruza has called for more television coverage of women’s tennis matches.

WTA has recently signed a five year deal with the Tennis channel in the US in an effort to boost coverage of women’s tennis.

“Sometimes I feel that (television) plays more men’s matches, not only in the United States but also in other countries, in Spain as well, and people need to see (women’s tennis) in order to have their daughters play,” Muguruza said.

“Just to see it on TV helps people to realise they’re is also a women’s side.”

Muguruza is currently preparing for her debut at Hong Kong Open.
