Halep battles past Svitolina to set up semi-final vs Pliskova

Halep dismantles Suarez Navarro to reach quarters

After saving a match point, she regrouped and won the final set 6-0 to move one game away from her second French Open final.

Halep struck 19 winners in 60 minutes of play on Court Philippe Chatrier to return to the last eight in Paris for the second time in her career.

Next she will meet either Croatian qualifier Petra Martic or fifth-seeded Ukrainian Elina Svitolina.

"So the desire that I had in that moment made him come back and just be ready for me". And as Muguruza walked to the locker room after her defeat, she wagged a finger toward the stands before bursting into tears during her post-match interview. I'm happy to be in the quarterfinals again, so let's see.

"So I have just to improve in this way because he never had something to complain about my game and about the work that I do because I'm working, but just with my attitude". This might prove to be a key statistic in the outcome of this match, as the chances are that the more disciplined player might come out victorious in the end.

In tennis, the feeling is that players who win a grand slam title usually have to get through at least one hard match during the fortnight.

"I showed that I'm stronger mentally", said Halep.

The third seeds did not face a single break point and converted five of six to stretch their winning streak to 11 matches, including the titles in Madrid and Rome, and set up a quarter-final against Raluca Olaru of Romania and Olga Savchuk of Ukraine.

Svitolina wasn't the only top seed to have a scare in the fourth round with world No.3 Karolina Pliskova overcaming an terrible start to beat unheralded Veronica Cepede Royg of Paraguay 2-6 6-3 6-4 to reach the quarters for the first time.

On the other side, Tuesday's results guaranteed a matchup that would seem unbelievable if it were in a movie, with both Timea Bacsinszky, 28 to be, and Jelena Ostapenko, exiting her teens, competing for their first Grand Slam final.

There will be a first-time grand slam champion at the French Open. - Pliskova said after reaching her first French Open semi-final.

"I think the crowd today was a little bit obviously tough for me", Muguruza said.

- Sixth-seed Dominic Thiem leads 7-6 (5) 6-3 against defending champion Novak Djokovic after nearly two hours of play on Court Suzanne-Lenglen.

Martic, ranked 290th in the world after a 10-month injury layoff a year ago, was two points from victory at 5-2, 30-0 on her opponents serve, but Svitolina unleashed a barrage of winners to claim 20 of the last 26 points.
