Muguruza, Venus out; French Open to have 1st-time Slam champ

Muguruza, Venus out; French Open to have 1st-time Slam champ Muguruza, Venus out; French Open to have 1st-time Slam champ

Kristina Mladenovic rode the French crowd on a packed Suzanne-Leglen court to help lift her over defending champion Garbine Muguruza on Sunday.

Muguruza's defeat means Justine Henin, who won the title in 2003 and then from 2005 to 2007, remains the last woman to successfully defend her crown at Roland Garros.

Venus Williams of the USA leans on her racket after missing a shot against Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland during their fourth round match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium, in Paris, France.

Never mind the 16 double faults, Mladenovic sent the Roland Garros crowd into raptures as their darling reached the quarter-finals of the French Open on Sunday.

Kei Nishikori fought off a fierce five-set challenge from rising South Korean talent Hyeon Chung to clinch a place in the last-16.

Big serving Karen Khachanov will play Andy Murray in the fourth round after the giant Russian beat 21st seed John Isner 7-6 (1), 6-3, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (3).

Muguruza, who lost 6-1 3-6 6-3, came back after a minute and said she would take any question.

"I think the crowd today was a little bit obviously tough for me", Muguruza said. "We're here for the good and for the bad".

When Muguruza's complaints about the crowd were relayed to Mladenovic, she said she thought it was just as tough on her, because she had to deal with the burden of thousands counting on her to win.


Ostapenko now faces former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, who is a two-time major finalist.

I like Mladenovic to advance to the French Open semifinal.

For her part, Mladenovic saw no problem with the behaviour of the hometown fans and said there was just as much pressure on her to perform well.

In the decider it was Muguruza who failed to capitalize on Mladenovic's serving woes in the third set, and that was ultimately the difference that didn't quite seem over until the last ball was struck.

"I love this tournament no matter what happens", she added.

Mladenovic reached the quarterfinals at Roland Garros for the first time.

"If you had been in my shoes on the court, I think you would have understood". However, Mladenovic has had the most impressive victories, which is more encouraging, while besides her win over Venus, Bacsinszky has beaten up on players ranked outside of the top-50.

Nadal continued his ruthless form by dispatching Spanish 17th seed Roberto Bautista Agut 6-1, 6-2, 6-2.

With the issue causing her pain on "every forehand", Stosur was forced to favour the backhand wing heavily as she slipped to defeat in three sets.
