“I’m very happy because this is my third time in Monterrey, and in the previous years I didn’t play very well so finally now I could win a match,” Muguruza said after the match.
“It was different playing a local girl, a young star, but I’m excited to play new people. I just concentrate and try to do my job the best I can.”
Next up for the Spaniard is a second-round encounter against Alison Riske after the American beat Evgeniya Rodina 6-0, 7-6 (7-4).
Fourth seed Timea Babos also advanced as she beat qualifier Marie Bouzkova 6-3, 6-4 while the fifth-seed Monica Puig claimed a 6-3, 6-3 victory over Nicole Gibbs.
