Top seed Halep into third Roland Garros semi-final

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. Like, before, I gave it a lot of importance so that's why you're fighting every week, and I got there. Halep saved two match points to win that one. The victor earns a berth in the final at Roland Garros, plus the number one ranking that now belongs to Halep.

Muguruza, by contrast, started with a swagger, a rasping forehand giving her a second break before Sharapova went 4-0 down when she put a tame attempted drop shot into the net. Sharapova was the French Open champion in 2012 and 2014; Muguruza took the trophy in 2016.

But he was 5-3 and 30-15 to the good when rain sent the players off for good.

The second quarter-final between Marin Cilic and Juan Martin del Potro is also finely balanced with the players tied at 5-5 in the tiebreak in the opening set. Stephens won that one, as well as the only other match the longtime friends, Fed Cup and Olympic teammates have played against each other.

Simona Halep insists she feels "no pressure, no expectation" as she looks to reach a fourth Grand Slam final at the French Open on Thursday.

"Maybe someone knows. Maybe like six years or something. Then I changed a little bit of tactics and it worked".

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

"It's always a tough match when I play against her".

"I am very pleased to be in another final in Paris", said Muguruza who has yet to drop a set in the tournament and claimed her first win over Sharapova in 4 meetings.

Steel producer says USA customers already putting orders on hold amid tariffs
It's unclear what progress, if any, both sides made toward resolving the differences over purchases during the talks this weekend. China has threatened to hit back with tit-for-tat tariffs on tens of billions of dollars in U.S. goods.

Sharapova and Williams were due to clash in the fourth round on Monday but the American pulled out at the last minute of their eagerly-awaited grudge match with injury.

"Kind of a weird day", Muguruza said.

A Grand Slam win in Paris would bring redemption for Halep, who lost in the 2017 French Open final against Jelena Ostapenko after leading by a set and three games.

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

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

Two-time finalist Halep remained on course for her first Roland Garros title by beating the German 12th seed.

But Halep figured things out.

Kerber got off to a flying start. That she's into her first Slam semifinal on Roland Garros' red clay may seem a surprise to many, but Keys has had European clay success before. "If I do that, I will be OK after the match, no matter the result".
