French Open 2018: Results, Highlights, Thursday Scores Recap from Roland-Garros

Yesterday's matches in Paris saw Simona Halep fight back from the disappointment of losing the first set on a tiebreak against Angelique Kerber to take the next two sets in relatively facile fashion, while our selection, Maria Sharapova, disappointed in the extreme in her defeat to Garbine Muguruza, who created 12 break points and faced just one. Muguruza hopes to make her fourth career grand slam final and her second career French Open final.

The pair played at the French Open back in 2014, where Halep won en route to her first Grand Slam final.

And it was Sharapova who looked the rustier, with two limp service games handing Muguruza an immediate 4-0 lead and consequently the first set.

Muguruza and Halep are due on court "not before" 2pm - but their exact start time could depend on both the weather and Rafael Nadal.

Half an hour later 1-0 had become 6-1 and the challenge of Muguruza, who would have taken over at the top of the rankings with victory, appeared to be fading fast.

Halep had to come back from a break of serve down in the second set and fend off three break points at 4-4 before finally closing out the victory, which guaranteed that she will remain No. 1 in the rankings after this tournament. For Stephens, winning her second in five months. The reference to her book seemed rather irrelevant given the one-sided nature of yesterday's match - Sharapova won only three games.

The second week, her coach and Chicago tennis academy founder Kamau Murray said: "We were in Chicago".

Garbine Muguruza roared into the French Open semi-finals with a 6-2, 6-1 demolition job of Maria Sharapova on Wednesday.

"There is a lot of times where I feel like she made the ball by a centimeter", Keys continued, "and I was missing it". Her outlook in general resembles that of someone who is playing with house money.

"I will try my best", Halep told the crowd at Court Philippe Chatrier, "and hopefully I will be better than previous year". Now she gets her fourth chance to do exactly that. She lost the title match to Caroline Wozniacki at the Australian Open in January. "I would just call it a road". Halep then seized her chance, moving 0-40 ahead and then raising her arms in triumph as Muguruza blazed a backhand long. And I think we played many matches.

"I didn't play flat any more, more top-spin, and I made her run a little bit more", she said.

"I think she's right now probably the best player".

She endured an eight-match losing streak after leaving NY, going 0-6 for the rest of 2017 and then 0-2 to begin 2018, including a first-round loss at the Australian Open. "It is a very tough day, because, you know, it's one of those matches where you train so hard, you know, to achieve a Grand Slam final". She had 41 unforced errors today, which isn't going to win you too many two-set matches.
