Muguruza had lost all three previous times she faced Sharapova, whose five Grand Slam titles include two at Roland Garros.

Garbine Muguruza gave Maria Sharapova no chance in their quarterfinal.

Halep is aware she can not afford another poor start on Thursday against 24-year-old Muguruza who has been tested just once in Paris and that was in the first round where fellow former victor Svetlana Kuznetsova pushed her to a tiebreak in the first set.

She took the second 6-1 to record her first career win over Sharapova and heads into the semi-finals in excellent form.

Kerber, 30, earned a double break in the first set but Halep recovered to 5-5 only for the pair to exchange a further break before Kerber won the tie-break.

Top-ranked Simona Halep has leveled at one set-all in her French Open quarterfinal against Angelique Kerber of Germany. It's still going for my shots, because that's how I play my best tennis. Halep managed to win despite 46 unforced errors and being broken four times.

"I think there is a lot of autobiographies out in the world, especially in the sporting world, that don't necessarily speak about whether they were rivals or someone they competed against". Off the baseline, Stephens will bait Keys to go for too much, using her speed and counter-punching ability to shrink the court. "Then I changed a little bit of tactics and it worked".

Halep was my pick to win the French Open, and I truly hope she finally gets the money off her back.

"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.

On Court Suzanne Lenglen, Marin Cilic and Juan Martin del Potro were locked in a first-set tiebreak when play was called off.

Nadal lost the opener 6-4 against 11th-seeded Diego Schwartzman but began to play better after a rain delay of just under an hour. That might very well have been a relief to 10-time champion Rafael Nadal, who was not at his best on Wednesday (Thursday NZT) and dropped a French Open set for the first time since 2015. "She had a lot more depth in the ball".

Muguruza leads Halep 3-1 head-to-head, but this is their first grand slam match-up. She went on to commit only 16 errors over the course of the next two, which was the difference in getting the win. "If I do that, I will be OK after the match, no matter the result".

One could not tell on Monday, however, as she kept misfiring against two-time Grand Slam champion Kerber. In 2016, Nadal won two straight-set matches, then withdrew before the third round because of an injured left wrist.
