Muguruza thrashes Sharapova to reach semi-finals

Serena Williams net worth

Muguruza isn't giving he opponent many chances to breathe, and that's the reason for her quick success in these recent matches.

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

The former world number one drilled a backhand victor down the line to hold again in the next game, the 28th seed clenching her fist as she walked to the chair.

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

"I mean, it's not that important, because it's constantly this thing going on, you know. since previous year", she said after a crushing 6-2, 6-1 last-eight victory over Maria Sharapova in Paris.

This will be the 10th time Halep and Kerber have faced off with the Romanian edging their head-to-head 5-4.

Halep recovered from losing the first set on a tiebreak to beat Angelique Kerber in three sets, while Muguruza enjoyed a comprehensive win over Maria Sharapova. Muguruza has won seven of her last nine matches on clay court. Muguruza, who is 3-1 against the No. 1-seeded Halep in her career, has never squared off with her in a Grand Slam.

The top seed roared back in the second set, breaking serve in the opening game and going on to take it 6-3. The Spaniard won the French Open in 2016 and Wimbledon previous year.

"I think it would be unusual for me not to include someone that I have competed against for so many years", said the 31-year-old.

Sharapova didn't need to play a point in the fourth round, because Serena Williams pulled out of their much-anticipated match with an injured chest muscle.

Sharapova looked far from her best right from the start, double-faulting three times to get broken in the opening game. Muguruza sensed weakness and pounced for a 4-0 lead. Muguruza won 58 percent of her return points and broke six times in her quarterfinal victory.

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. Muguruza essentially got that round off, too: Her opponent, Lesia Tsurenko, quit with an injury after only two games.

Kerber is a two-time Grand Slam champion.

"I think I did a good performance today, a very serious, solid match".
