Rolland Garros, Day 7, Women

Maria Sharapova won easily Karolina Pliskova in the 3rd round derby, and so she showed she was ready for big things at this year’s Roland Garros. Maria Sharapova lost only 3 games to the biggest Roland Garros’ third round game, who beat Karolina Pliskova with 6-2, 6-1 in less than an hour!

For the 12th time in her career, Sharapova will play in the 4th round of Roland Garros, who was a champion in Paris in 2012 and 2014, while she was a finalist in 2013 and a semi finalist in 2007 and 2011.
She will wait for Serena Williams to play with Julia Goerges to find out which player she will face on Monday for a place in the quarter-finals. We recall the 18 consecutive defeats from Serena, who she won for the last time 14 years ago!

Anett Kontaveit won two tie-breaks against Petra Kvitova and stopped her 13 consecutive victories to qualify for the first time in the 4th round of Roland Garros. Anett Kontaveit managed to curb Petra Kvitova’s resistance with 7-6 (6), 7-6 (4) and qualify for the fourth round for the second consecutive Grand Slam, after having done it in Melbourne a few months ago.
This was the first defeat for Kvitova after 13 consecutive hits. She was a champion in Prague and Madrid, before traveling to Paris where she had gladly completed her obligations for this year’s soil season since she could not be in Roland Garros’second week.
On the contrary, Kontaveit will be in the second week of the French Open for the first time and she will face Sloane Stephens in the 4th round.

Garbine Muguruza also entered the 4th round of Roland Garros, who continues her course for the second title in Paris. The 24-year-old Spanish player was sweeping and crushed Samantha Stosur with 6-0, 6-2 in just 62 minutes. In the next round, the holder of 2 Grand Slam titles will face Lesia Tsurenko, who also made a perfect match and was imposed to Magdalena Rybarikova, No. 19 on the board, with 6-2, 6-4, in only 60 minutes!
