Maria Sharapova fires back at Serena in book feud

Low points Maria Sharapova returns the ball to Garbine Muguruza

But I love everything about Sloane Stephens' attitude when it comes to big matches, and I think it gives her the slightest of edges.

She further proved her credentials with a dominant, yet gutsy, win over 2016 champion Muguruza, who failed to hold serve in the first set.

Halep has lost six of her last seven final appearances overall and is 0-3 in grand slam final appearances for her career.

However she looked exhausted in the fourth and Halep took advantage as she broke back and then backed that up with a hold to love. Either way, she was right.

Garbine Muguruza annihilated the former world number one Maria Sharapova 6-2 6-1 on Wednesday to reach the French Open semi-finals.

Unranked after serving a 15-month doping suspension that ended in the spring of 2017, Sharapova received much-debated wild cards to several WTA events but not Roland Garros, her first major since returning and the only venue where she has won two Grand Slam championships. And her victory didn't lack for theatrics, as she looked dead set on a path to defeat after Stephens' hot start and yet left her opponent without any answers in a 6-1 closing set. "I'll come here Friday, have a hit, have lunch here, go to my room, watch TV, wait till dinner, have dinner, go to sleep".

"I have just to stay strong, to try to make her uncomfortable on court", Halep said, "and to try to play my game".

The World No.1 was much-improved under the sunshine on Court Philippe Chatrier after finding life hard in damp conditions the night before, finally seeing off dogged Argentinian Schwartzman on his fourth match point. "It's been a little bit longer for me to get used to it, but I feel like every year I get more comfortable".

Muguruza pounced on Sharapova's errors to lead 4-0.

The pair exchanged breaks at the start of the second set but from 1-1 it was one way traffic.

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

"So we will see what is going to happen, but I just want to be smiling on court". That includes the French Open in 2014 and 2017, and the Australian Open in January.

Halep was my pick to win the French Open before the tournament, even though I picked against her in the Muguruza match. As she knows better than anyone, it is her fourth major final, and after various disappointments of various degrees, she is ready to take the trophy. She saved five match points on her way to the final, only to fall just short against Caroline Wozniacki, who won her first major title. Some of those matches were very defining for me. "When I'm talking about progression or looking back at the weeks, I think there are a lot of good things, like the way my body has handled the long matches that I have played, the back-to-backs".

She improved in the second set, breaking early on only to be pegged back at 4-4 before Halep held a marathon ninth game and broke for a 6-1 6-4 win.
