WRAPUP 1-Tennis-Highlights of French Open 10th day

Pammachio Corsino | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:38

Still, it was clear that she was up to the task against the 11th-seeded Wozniacki, who is 26 and has been to two U.S. Open finals and yet somehow seemed the less sure of herself.

Andy Murray is also in action today in a reprise of last year's US Open quarter-final against Kei Nishikori. Ostapenko has come back twice in this tournament after dropping the first set and has won 45 percent or better of her return points in three of her four matches. After a three-hour rain delay with Ostapenko down a set and leading 5-2 in the second, she forced a decider before yet another rainstorm caused another stoppage.

After beating defending champion Garbine Muguruza in the previous round, the home fans had hoped Mladenovic could end France's 17-year wait for a home victor at Roland Garros.

The stoppage should have helped the Dane but when play resumed Ostapenko continued where she left off, holding serve to level the match.

The 30th seed played in the last four of the French Open two years ago and will get another opportunity to seal a spot in a first grand slam final when she plays surprise package Jelena Ostapenko on Thursday. The former No. 1 player was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2012.

First up are the first of the women's last-eight ties.

As the wind calmed, Mladenovic began asserting her aggression.


But there were twists and turns aplenty as the stormy skies over Paris took centre stage. "She did in the second set, but I managed to close it off in three, which I'm happy about".

Play has been halted in the women's quarterfinals at the French Open because of rain.

Next came perhaps the game of the match, a 12-minute triumph of quality and touch over adversity. Both of us will have the birthday, so I am really looking forward to the match.to play semi-final of Roland Garros on your birthday, I think it's really nice.

The second started in similarly nervy fashion, with both exchanging breaks, before the Swiss broke for a 4-3 lead. "I am still in the semi-final and it is going to be a hard match, so I just have to go out there and do my best". "We had a hurricane, a sandstorm, and we nearly had snow, too".

"At the beginning he was more a clay-court player, I would say, because we shared - his former coach is my coach now, so that's the only info I've got". The Swiss spoke warmly of her opponent and the battle ahead. Yeah, it's pretty amusing. "I think it's pretty cool..." Going in, she's tough to read, you don't really feel comfortable.

Nadal, who turned 31 on Saturday, will next face either Milos Raonic or another Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta for a place in the semi-finals.

In 2014, she was ranked outside the top 100 and went through qualifying at the French Open.
