Simona Halep sweeps aside Garbine Muguruza to reach French Open final

08 June 2018, 04:30 | Pamela Mathis

The other match, featuring Angelique Kerber and Simona Halep, went to a third after the Romanian had a scrappy start. Halep pointed her right index finger at her temple when she eventually completed a 6-7 (2) 6-3 6-2 comeback to reach the semifinals, too.

I stayed focused, dnd I didn't give up, which is the most important thing in my game. It's just how it's happened for me", Stephens said, "I think once I get going in a tournament, I'm pretty consistent, which is good. "My head won it".

The women got their matches done before rain arrived at Roland Garros, leaving the men's quarterfinals suspended in progress. But play was stopped with Nadal at 5-3, 30-15.

Shortly after easily winning her French Open quarterfinal, Sloane Stephens wanted to track down her good friend Madison Keys, who advanced in straight sets earlier Tuesday.

"I will try my best", Halep told the crowd at Court Phillipe Chatrier, "and hopefully I will be better than a year ago".

"I wish there was something exciting to tell you, but it's really not".

Sharapova certainly didn't do that.

Sharapova, 31, was broken in the opening game of the second set which she immediately retrieved.

Maria Sharapova questioned the reliability of the top-100 highest-paid athletes' list by Forbes.

Muguruza's opponent Lesia Tsurenko lasted just two games before retiring hurt.

Thousands attending Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose
This means users who still use the first generation Apple Watch had software support from Apple for a little more than 3 years. Although a few of the developers have reportedly benefitted from this technology, not much of the renowned apps have used it.


As if to reflect the last few months, not just the chance to win her first Slam, but also the No 1 ranking will be on the line for Halep when she faces Garbine Muguruza.

Here's another key category in which Muguruza has the upper hand: 2-0 in major championships.

"I think the book was 100 percent hearsay, at least all the stuff I read and the quotes that I read, which was a little bit disappointing", said Williams, who played in her first Grand Slam since giving birth past year.

She won the US Open in September on a ranking of 83 and just 69 days after returning to the tour following her near year-long absence.

Like Sharapova, Halep trailed 4-0 at the outset. He committed 74 unforced errors on Thursday, one more than in his previous two matches combined.

But Halep figured things out.

Kerber got off to a flying start.

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.

"No expectations, no pressure", Halep said as she looked ahead to the semifinals, perhaps trying to persuade herself as much as anyone. "Every day I play better and that makes me happy". Some of those matches were very defining for me.
