Rafael Nadal's French Open set streak ends in quarterfinals

Rafael Nadal's French Open set streak ends in quarterfinals

But the dogged Romanian scrapped hard to turn the contest on its head to win 6-7 (2-7) 6-3 6-2 to advance to the final four. "I think I've developed a lot as a tennis player". Halep saved two match points to win that one.

Garbine Muguruza overwhelmed Maria Sharapova 6-2, 6-1 in a matchup of past French Open champions to reach the semifinals.

Muguruza leads Halep 3-1 head-to-head, but this is their first grand slam match-up. The victor earns a berth in the final at Roland Garros - plus the No 1 ranking that now belongs to Halep.

"After the first set I just stayed strong, I did not give up at all", Halep said. Sharapova had 27 unforced errors and had her serve broken six times.

Halep recovered from losing the first set on a tiebreak to beat Angelique Kerber in three sets, while Muguruza enjoyed a comprehensive win over Maria Sharapova.

"When you're facing somebody that also has an aggressive style of game", Muguruza said about facing Sharapova, "I think it's about who takes the command, who takes the first opportunity".

Rafael Nadal has won 37 completed sets in a row at the French Open heading into his quarterfinal against Diego Schwartzman. Serve and return worked much more efficiently while Kerber struggled to maintain the usual range from the baseline Nonetheless, Halep's overall level of play had been in the ascendancy for most of that set's second half - and, continuing to take control from the baseline, she immediately took her first lead of the match with a break in the second set. The record for the clay-court Grand Slam tournament was Bjorn Borg's 41-set winning streak from 1978-81.

Two past U.S. Open champions meet in the other men's quarterfinal: No. 3 Marin Cilic against No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro. Muguruza, who won the French Open in 2016 but didn't make it out of sectionals past year, is continuing a fantastic run of tennis at Roland-Garros.

"I am very pleased to be in another final in Paris", said Muguruza who has yet to drop a set in the tournament and claimed her first win over Sharapova in 4 meetings.

'And I think we played many matches. She started going for less, adding a little more lift to her shots and letting Kerber make the mistakes. "She had a lot more depth in the ball".

"I just want to play as I did today, and as I did every day". I didn't manage to find the rhythm, to be focused on my match.

Five-time Grand Slam champion Sharapova was able to put her feet up when Serena Williams retired due to injury ahead of their eagerly awaited showdown on Monday but she was off the pace two days later in Paris.
