Sharapova dumped out by clinical Muguruza

Two women who have won the title at Roland Garros, Maria Sharapova and Garbine Muguruza, play each other in the quarterfinals.

Muguruza fired a shot heard round the world - or at least heard around the Bois de Boulogne - on Wednesday when she overpowered that savage ball striker, Maria Sharapova.

Today, Sharapova suffered her heaviest defeat at the Slams since her 6-3, 6-0 battering at the hands of Victoria Azarenka in the 2012 Australian Open final.

"But I don't give it too much attention". Now I just have to go find her, because I need to tell her some juicy stuff. "My head won it".

No. 3 Garbine Muguruza def. The victor earns a berth in the final at Roland Garros, plus the number one ranking that now belongs to Halep.

Muguruza also dismissed the idea she is favourite against Halep, adding: "No, I don't feel I'm favorite for this match, because she's played better than I have this year".

Keys appears to have made more progress in her clay game than any of her semifinal peers, perhaps because she's had the most room to grow. The tiebreak may have been one-sided, but the long rallies, Kerber's thunderous groundstrokes and Halep's gritty defense made it an entertaining first set that lasted for an hour.

During the changeover after the set, a trainer came out to tape both of left-handed Nadal's wrists.

The women's semifinals at the 2018 French Open are set, but the men's draw will have to wait another day to fill the final two spots. In the victory, Muguruza won 72 percent of her first serve points and 46 percent of her second serve points.

Halep is still chasing her first Grand Slam title after several near-misses.

"I think my body will need a little bit of rest, but mentally I'm ready to go", said five-time major victor Sharapova.

James appeared to be on the brink of tears as the team huddled on the sideline. "That was Rodney Hood, man", James said. The Cavaliers are 8-1 at home in this year's playoffs, losing only in their first-round opener against Indiana.

This time past year, Stephens was still sidelined with a foot injury that her walking around in crutches and Keys was coming off a second wrist surgery.

Sharapova certainly didn't do that. She reacted well to limit her mistakes while staying aggressive on her German opponent's service games.

The two former Paris champions had not been inconvenienced by too much tennis over the past few days - Serena Williams pulled out of her match with Sharapova while Muguruza's opponent Lesia Tsurenko lasted just two games before retiring hurt.

"Kind of a weird day", Muguruza said.

Halep reached the semifinals in a Grand Slam event for the sixth time in her career, matching Ilie Nastase for the most by a Romanian male or female in the Open era.

Halep, meanwhile, has participated in a trio of major finals, losing each.

Keys has reached the second week in nine of her last 11 Slams.

Like Sharapova, Halep trailed 4-0 at the outset.

But Halep figured things out.

"And now it's just - it's good to be able to play all the time for that, but every week there is a new chance, there is a new thing".

Such impressive data from this match has led to Muguruza being chalked up as a [1.89] favourite over Halep, and I want to discuss why I think this is an utterly freaky line.
