Halep into French semi as Svitolina chokes

Halep into French semi as Svitolina chokes

The third-seeded Romanian took care of that problem today at the French Open, routing Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-1 to advance to the quarterfinals at Roland Garros.

That's what Halep did in her quarterfinal match against an opponent who has been the most successful WTA player on the year, Elina Svitolina.

Garcia overcame her own nerves to beat countrywoman Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-4 and become the second Frenchwoman at this year's tournament to make the quarters, along with Kristina Mladenovic.

But the Romanian survived, saving a match point in the process, and will perhaps think her name is on the trophy.

"Now I'm happy that I can be positive on court, and I will never be negative like I was in Miami, because I didn't like it when I saw the video, I felt ashamed about what I did". I just went for it.

"All the top players have gone through that and I guess I have to learn lessons and figure how to get through".

With big guns Angelique Kerber and Garbine Muguruza already having crashed out and Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova not playing because of pregnancy and the legacy of a doping ban, Halep now looks in the best shape to land her maiden grand slam title. "I think I played exactly what I needed to", Halep said after the match.

He was a runner-up at Wimbledon in 2010 and reached his highest ranking of No 4 past year.

"Didn't have my weapons on my side and the movement was awful", Pliskova, who next faces former French Open runner-up Simona Halep, told a news conference.

Svitolina, who recently clinched the title in Rome, lost the opening set 6-4, before taking on a 6-3 victory to force a decisive set. I have never won against her on clay, so this was a really good match. A first-time Grand Slam champion will be crowned on Saturday and the victor could well be the one who survives this match.

"I played the best match here in Roland Garros against Carla, which always was a tough match".

Simona Halep admitted yesterday she was "ashamed" that her on-court behaviour prompted respected coach Darren Cahill to call a temporary halt to their partnership.

Halep - the pre-tournament favorite based on her clay-court performances this year - looked down and out when she trailed by a set and 5-1 to Svitolina.
