  • Madison Keys French Open 2018

No. 1 Simona Halep faces No. 3 Garbine Muguruza, and No. 10 Sloane Stephens meets No. 13 Madison Keys in the first all-American French Open semifinal since 2002.

The second set was no less competitive with keys this time being the one to capitalise on a single break point chance and, as it turned out, a single match point to seal her place in her first Roland Garros semi-final.

Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys ensured there will be an American in this year's French Open final.

Paris: Sloane Stephens set up a French Open semi-final showdown against fellow-American Madison Keys after comfortably overcoming wily Russian Daria Kasatkina 6-3, 6-1 on Tuesday.

Last year, they each reached their first grand slam final at the U.S. Open, squaring off with one another.

In men's play, the two remaining men's quarterfinals suspended by rain will resume: Rafael Nadal dropped the opening set of his match against 11th-seeded Diego Schwartzman 6-4 and was serving for the second at 5-3, 30-15 when play was halted. The victor will reach another first - the finals at Roland Garros.

Woman dragged into water by gator in Davie
According to the woman's friends, her husband had urged her not to walk her dogs near the lake because he had seen gators before. Matsuki's husband, who is out of town, has been told his wife went missing after walking the dogs, the paper reported.

"I'm very happy to win in straight sets".

At the start neither were giving an inch before perhaps a more aggressive state of mind from Putintseva gave her the edge to take a solitary break point to take the lead. "But I got closer to them, just asking 'Who was it?' I'm still trying to find the right person".

Djokovic had also squandered three set points in the second set and failed to serve out the fourth in the ninth game after being 5-2 in front.

Yulia Putintseva has lost the first set of her French Open quarterfinal, and her temper, too.

"I think it was a little bit of relief for me after that rain delay and I had to hold that level of energy" He said. Just one good shot from her here and one bad shot from me there, and then the set was over. "I'd love for both of us to be able to be in the position to play each other multiple times". Didn't have a good result in Australia, and I knew that I needed to change some things, and I did that and I had a great result in Miami.

All the hype was over Serena Williams' major comeback at Roland Garros, but it is two of the 23-time grand slam champion's compatriots who will take centre stage on Thursday. "But before that, we are not going to be weird and awkward and make it, like, weird for each other", she said. Zverev has won his last three matches at Roland Garros in five sets and the German has another huge challenge ahead of him if he is to progress. And then when we get on the court, it's time to compete.
