The rain eventually prevailed today by not letting the two men’s quarterfinals to complete. The two matches have been rescheduled for tomorrow.
In the quarter-finals of women that were held earlier, Simona Halep and Garbine Muguruza prevailed over Angelique Kerber and Maria Sharapova respectively, moving on to the semi-finals.
In the game that opened the schedule, the Spaniard No 3 of the board was stunning and left no room for reaction to Sharapova. Muguruza took just 1 hour and 10 minutes to dominate the Russian with 2-0 sets, losing only 3 games throughout the game.
In the other game, Kerber started dynamically and managed to get the first set with 7-6 . But then it seemed to be out of strength and Halep showing her big class managed to overturn the score and get the qualification with 2-1 sets (6-7, 6-3, 6-2). At the same time, she retained her chances of staying in No. 1 of the world ranking.
