Maria Sharapova French Open 2018

Though Kerber, sensing a pendulum swing, cut her passive play out and began to construct her most aggressive points of the match, Halep would be able to protect that advantage throughout the set.

The top-ranked player indeed showed solid nerves to turn things up after a really bad start in her French Open quarterfinal on Wednesday.

After Angelique Kerber's final backhand bounced out of bounds on Court Suzanne Lenglen, Simona Halep turned to her box and pointed to her head.

Garbine Muguruza charged ominously into the French Open semifinals with a masterful thrashing of Maria Sharapova.

Reigning Wimbledon champion Muguruza awaits her after demolishing Maria Sharapova 6-2 6-1 on Philippe-Chatrier and the pair will now fight it out for Halep's No. 1 ranking. 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.

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. Muguruza has won seven of her last nine matches on clay court. The 24-year-old Muguruza holds a 3-1 record over Halep, with the victor of the last-four clash to face either Sloane Stephens or her fellow American Madison Keys in the final.

Muguruza has not dropped a set in this year's tournament and dominated Sharapova with booming groundstrokes and superb returning that earned six breaks. She broke again in the eighth game to seal the match. "I'm happy with that", the 24-year-old said.

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

Sharapova looked far from her best right from the start, double-faulting three times to get broken in the opening game. The German raced into a 3-0 lead with an early double break.

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. That includes the French Open in 2014 and 2017, and the Australian Open in January. ". Coming into this part of the year, I was losing a few first-round matches, matches that I wanted to be winning, of course". Halep is 3-2 in career grand slam semifinal matches.
