Top seed Halep into third Roland Garros semi-final

This is the first all-American French Open semi-final since 2002, when Serena Williams defeated Jennifer Capriati en route to the title.

After her third-round win against Julia Goerges, Williams charged at Sharapova's book, questioning why it wasn't truthful - at least to her - and why Sharapova was so obsessed with her as a subject.

Halep got off to a poor start, with 10 unforced errors in the opening three games handing Kerber a double break.

"It's the same thing as always". Del Potro got back to the semifinals in Paris for the first time since 2009. But before that, we are not going to be weird and awkward and make it, like, weird for each other. Like, I have just slowly kind of gained momentum. I just didn't give up. "I think there is a lot of autobiographies out in the world, especially in the sporting world, that don't necessarily speak about whether they were rivals or someone they competed against".

"Sure, yeah, I guess. So I'm excited to play a good semifinals, and it's good that it's tomorrow". "I will relax. We will see what is going to happen Saturday, but for sure I will fight for every ball". "I think everyone would ask me questions, as well".

Wilbur Ross says Trump administration has reached "definitive agreement" with ZTE
ZTE plead guilty to conspiring to violate United States sanctions against Iran and North Korea in a U.S. court previous year . While the agreement has not been finalized, ZTE has apparently agreed to pay another hefty fine to revive its business.


She had never made it past the fourth round on the red clay of Paris until now. It's clay. It's different.

"I wish there was something exciting to tell you, but it's really not". She said: "I have more experience now. Well, trying to be as nice as possible". I didn't, like, try to do it.

But Keys, who made 23 unforced errors in the first set, hit back hard and set up a break point at 3-2, only for Stephens to save it with a service return victor. Keys is all-out attack.

This time, she made no mistake. Yes, Muguruza has won three of their four head to head meetings, but Halep has won their only clay clash, so the head to head series is pretty irrelevant to this match-up.

It looks like the younger generation of Americans are also getting comfortable sliding and grinding on the dirt.

President Trump holds White House celebration without Eagles, man kneels during anthem
A USA Today newsletter noted, " Melania is alive and 'feeling great, ' she, or perhaps her husband, says". Her prolonged absence sparked wild online speculation that she had been out of view for other reasons.


The 2017 US Open Champion hadn't necessarily been rounding into stellar form before Roland Garros but at the very latest in Miami, Stephens once again showed why she is such a danger for other players in big matches.

In short, this is proper, pressure second-week of a grand slam tennis.

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

For comparison, Muguruza needed 70 minutes to beat Maria Sharapova in the quarterfinals. She will face either world number one Simona Halep or Angelique Kerber in the semi-finals.

Halep assured herself of retaining the No. 1 ranking and reached her third final in Paris.

Since the beginning of the demonstrations, up to 125 Palestinians have been killed and 2,700 more injured . Medhat Abbas, director of Al-Shifa Hospital, the largest medical facility in the Gaza Strip.


Regardless of the result, the 25-year-old Stephens will become the first American to break into the top five in the WTA rankings since Lindsay Davenport - Keys's coach - in 2006.
