Muguruza condemns Sharapova to worst slam loss in six years

Halep went from out-of-sorts to on-target against Kerber, scrambling to every ball and staying the course to erase an early deficit.

Current world number one Halep made the semi-finals for the 3rd time by battling past Germany's Angelique Kerber 6-7 (2/7), 6-3, 6-2.

"So I give less importance to that".

"I think it would be unusual for me not to include someone that I have competed against for so many years", said the 31-year-old.

"I mean, it's not that important, because it's constantly this thing going on, you know. since previous year", she said after a crushing 6-2, 6-1 last-eight victory over Maria Sharapova in Paris.

While Halep has yet to get her hands on a Grand Slam title, Muguruza has two to her name and she triumphed at Roland Garros in 2016. The victor earns a berth in the final at Roland Garros - plus the No 1 ranking that now belongs to Halep.

But as historical experts pointed out soon after details of the call were released, Canada did not burn down the White House. But to the USA president, any mention of Russian election interference is "fake news" and an attack on his legitimacy.

"And I think we played many matches".

Halep is still chasing her first Grand Slam title.

Sharapova never really got going after double-faulting three times in the opening game on Court Philippe Chatrier, losing to third seed Muguruza to the first time in their four encounters.

I can only conclude that the market has grossly over-reacted to seeing Muguruza's beating of Sharapova yesterday afternoon, and made her a false favourite for this clash - Halep at [2.10] is today's recommendation.

After a love hold, she snatched triple break points to find her feet at 3-4.

Though Kerber, sensing a pendulum swing, cut her passive play out and began to construct her most aggressive points of the match, Halep would be able to protect that advantage throughout the set.

Nadal was serving for the second set at 5-3, 30-15, when another shower came and action was halted for the day.

Maria Sharapova's return to the French Open ended in a crushing defeat when Garbine Muguruza emphatically silenced the shrieking Russian at Roland Garros. She is capable of moving Muguruza and forcing her out of her comfort zone in a way Sharapova could not.

"I just didn't feel free, and I felt there was a lot of force behind all the shots and that it wasn't coming natural to me - didn't have the rhythm", Sharapova told reporters.

Just like she wowed the tennis world with her summer past year, Stephens is enjoying a strong spring that started with her winning the title in Miami.

Kerber is a two-time Grand Slam champion. Muguruza essentially got that round off, too: Her opponent, Lesia Tsurenko, retired with an injury after only two games.

It is the first time that two American women have reached the last four at Roland Garros since 2002, when Serena Williams beat sister Venus in the final, after a semi-final win over Jennifer Capriati. "If I do that, I will be OK after the match, no matter the result". If she can channel that same degree of aplomb and expertise in the semi, Halep doesn't have much of a chance.
