Nadal through to semis as Carreno Busta quits

Nadal through to semis as Carreno Busta quits

"Then maybe change something up and hope I play a good match".

There will be a first-time Grand Slam champion at the French Open.

"He has to stop playing his opponent and not go so close to the lines".

Before we look ahead to their matches, though, let's look back and see what happened in Monday's four contests. "I think he deserves it".

"It was decided I think in the first set. It was just today it was just unusual how it came about".

American Williams, the 2002 champion, was beaten 5-7 6-2 6-1 by Swiss 30th seed Timea Bacsinszky.

The last repeat women's champion at Roland Garros remains Justine Henin, who won the tournament three consecutive years from 2005-07.

Nishikori had been two sets up but Chung fought back and was 3-0 up in the fourth when play was called off.

He clinched victory on his first match point when Nishikori failed to return a powerful serve.

In one of the later games yesterday, fourth seed Garbine Muguruza was eliminated by French player Kristina Mladenovic 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.

Wawrinka, who won at Roland Garros in 2015, will face either top-ranked Andy Murray or No. 8 Kei Nishikori. I still made the game and broke him in the first service game and again broke him in his first service game in the third set.




Simona Halep and Karolina Pliskova reached the women's semifinals.

The 31-year-old has dropped just 22 games through five matches, bettering his previous low of 25 en route the last four in Paris in 2008. The match will also be played on Court Philippe Chatrier, a court where Nadal has thrived.

The world number two was uncharacteristically flat - particularly during a third-set bagel - as he was humbled in two hours and 17 minutes.

Rafael Nadal wants tennis players to be given more time between points after he was punished for his tardiness at the French Open.

It is the Austrian sixth seed's first victory over Djokovic and he will now play Rafael Nadal in the last four.

On Wednesday at a windy Court Suzanne Lenglen, Djokovic was out of sorts in so many ways, even before that 20-minute third set in which he won only eight of 34 points.

This was Muguruza's first attempt at defending a Grand Slam championship, and she ran into a determined Mladenovic, who was backed by a vocal crowd of countrymen who chanted her nickname, Kiki, throughout the match.

What's your favourite moment from the French Open?

Rising Austrian tennis player Dominic Thiem demolished world number two Novak Djokovic to reach the semi-final stage at Roland Garros.
