Djokovic, Muguzura, Nadal in action at French Open

Jun 06, 2017, 06:16

Sunday's match was the second year in a row that Bacsinszky beat Williams in the fourth round in Paris.

Carreno Busta reached is first Grand Slam quarter-final the hard way, wasting six match points through a combination of unforced errors and big winners from Raonic.

Heading into the French Open, many figured the women's draw was wide open, because of the absences of Williams' sister, Serena (who is pregnant), and Maria Sharapova (who was denied a wild-card entry that she needed as she comes off a drug suspension).

Venus Williams of the US 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.

Muguruza, 23, spoke deliberately and took deep breaths while answering the first few questions, obviously fighting for composure.

Garbine Muguruza, the fourth seed for the women and defending champion, also failed to make it to the top eight players. When I was playing with Martina at the Olympics I was probably saying some Swiss-German words because we were mixing up everything, because, as well, we have language talents, both of us.

Williams had a good shot at making a run this year due to the weakened field, but she is now a casualty of that field. Kristina Mladenovic, the 13th seed, took down Muguruza in three sets, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.

Bacsinszky consolidated the break with a drop shot victor which she has been using so effectively in her matches. You never know. But anyway, it's gonna be a fun one.

After her win, Wozniacki was asked about Saturday night's London terrorist attack that left seven people dead and dozens more injured.

Mladenovic ensured France will have women in the quarter-finals for the first time since 1994 after dumping out fourth seed Muguruza 6-1 3-6 6-3.

Mladenovic will face Bacsinszky next, and Wozniacki meets Ostapenko. She will put her French Open shortcomings behind her fast, if she hasn't already.

Venus, ranked 39 in the world has reached the third round of a Grand Slam on five previous occasions; Wimbledon 2015-16. I'm kind of playing the best players in the race right now. "So it's quite huge for me". "But still there are some things that I want to improve and that I want to play better".

The 26-year-old Martic next faces fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina after the Ukrainian beat Magda Linette 6-4, 7-5.

Mother Oracene was leaning forward in her seat clapping encouragement to her daughter, who earned break points in the fourth game only to sail a deep backhand as Bacsinszky earned her eighth consecutive game for 4-0.
