Garbiñe Muguruza sends Maria Sharapova crashing out of French Open

Garbiñe Muguruza sends Maria Sharapova crashing out of French Open

"When I'm talking about progression or looking back at the weeks, I think there are a lot of good things, like the way my body has handled the long matches that I have played, the back-to-backs". Their French Open quarterfinal on Wednesday (Thursday NZ Time) was no contest at all, a 6-2 6-1 one-way journey.

The former world number one drilled a backhand victor down the line to hold again in the next game, the 28th seed clenching her fist as she walked to the chair.

Garbine Muguruza celebrates after victory over Maria Sharapova.

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

The Romanian broke at the start of the second set and then held for 6-3 as Kerber dropped her serve again in the ninth game.

Schwartzman did the unthinkable by claiming it 6-4, as the 10-time French champion dropped a set at Roland Garros for the first time since 2015.

Thoroughly and clinically outplayed by Muguruza in every respect, Sharapova looked uncomfortable and off-balance for most of her brief stint on court and had a particularly deflating second set in which she logged two winners to 15 unforced errors. Muguruza has won seven of her last nine matches on clay court. Muguruza is 3-0 in career grand slam semifinal matches.

South Korea doubles assistance to PH to $1 billion, Dominguez says
"He can go to hell", Duterte told a news conference late Saturday night, prior to leaving for an official visit to South Korea . Duterte has claimed in the past that he was molested by a Catholic priest as a boy.

She needed only 70 minutes to eliminate Sharapova and dominated her with superb returning, breaking the former No. 1 a half-dozen times.

She played her way back into the top 50 earlier this year and earned a seed (28) here in a major for the first time since her forced hiatus. "So I think that's why I won today", Halep said. That includes the French Open in 2014 and 2017, and the Australian Open in January.

An anti-climactic match ended predictably, with a Sharapova backhand nestling in the net - her 27th unforced error.

Now third in the WTA leaderboard behind Halep and Caroline Wozniacki, Muguruza will rise above them both to sit atop of the rankings with a win on Thursday.

Williams withdrew shortly before the match with a pectoral muscle injury, a moment Sharapova said she found briefly startling but not destabilizing.

"I'm also very realistic, and, you know, looking back at where I started, 40, 50 in the world, I don't know what I'll be after this event".
