Muguruza isn't giving he opponent many chances to breathe, and that's the reason for her quick success in these recent matches. But she fell apart and eventually lost to the unseeded Latvian in her second French Open final.

After Angelique Kerber's final backhand bounced out of bounds on Court Suzanne Lenglen, Simona Halep turned to her box and pointed to her head.

"I mean, it's not that important, because it's constantly this thing going on, you know. since a year ago", she said after a crushing 6-2, 6-1 last-eight victory over Maria Sharapova in Paris. Kerber twice lent a hand as she twice served to seal the set and twice got broken.

But the Romanian clawed her way back into the contest, winning three straight games as both players struggled to hold on to their serves in a monster opening set that swung one way and then the next. The victor earns a berth in the final at Roland Garros - plus the No 1 ranking that now belongs to Halep.

Muguruza has not dropped a set in this year's tournament and dominated Sharapova with booming groundstrokes and superb returning that earned six breaks.

This time, she made no mistake. The Spaniard won the French Open in 2016 and Wimbledon previous year.

The signs were ominous when the five-times Grand Slam champion coughed up three nervy double-faults in the opening game. "So I think that's why I won today", Halep said.

Despite seeing her French Open campaign end in just 70 minutes in the quarterfinals, five-time major champion Maria Sharapova called her fortnight in Paris "a step in the right direction".

Now third in the WTA leaderboard behind Halep and Caroline Wozniacki, Muguruza will rise above them both to sit atop of the rankings with a win on Thursday.

Sharapova didn't need to play a point in the fourth round, because Serena Williams pulled out of their much-anticipated match with an injured chest muscle.

Muguruza raced to a 4-0 lead and never looked back. She went on to commit only 16 errors over the course of the next two, which was the difference in getting the win.

It ranked among one of the most lopsided losses ever suffered by Sharapova in her Grand Slam career.

"I'm also very realistic, and, you know, looking back at where I started, 40, 50 in the world, I don't know what I'll be after this event".
