Garcia, who will play Cincinnati this week, then followed up that success with a historic win at the China Open, where she won an epic quarterfinal with Elina Svitolina and set up a showpiece match up with Simona Halep.

“I was definitely the underdog,” she said. “I was playing the brand new No.1 in the world. I couldn’t dream of a better opponent. It was a very good test for me after all these matches.

“When you get a lot of matches and you get a lot of wins, your movement gets better and you hit the ball very cleanly, and in this match that’s exactly what happened. It was what I needed against her. She’s very tough to move. “

Reflecting on the 6-4, 7-6(3) win, she added: “It’s nice to see these highlights. Sometimes when it is positive and you keep going in your right direction, things can help you out.

“Sometimes you have to go through difficult times and you don’t know if the work you do is going to pay off. When I had the trophy in my hands, I thought: ‘Ok, this was definitely worth it. I know why I did all this and why I want more.’”
