Garbine Muguruza from Spain, thrashes Maria Sharapova to reach the semi finals of the French Open. The semi finals would be a much-anticipated second top-of-the-bill showdown.
Maria Sharapova couldn’t even get to play with Serena Williams, despite eagerly waiting for it. The match was supposed to be in play on Monday, but sadly Serena was pulled out of the match just before an hour before the schedule because of injury.
Sharapova has been back to the clay court slam for the frist time after her last brawl in 2015. Earlier a doping ban was imposed on her, when she walked on the clay with two French Open crowns to Muguruza’s one and even had a 3-0 head-to-head record against the reigning Wimbledon champion.
However after an hour and ten minutes, Sharapova was in for her worst French Open spanking. It is mainly because she only managed to play two games against Dominika Cibulkova in 2009.
The signs were pretty clear and ominous in the opening game as the 31 years old player coughed up three nervy double-faults. Sensing the weakness, Muguruza pounced at her and gained a lead of 4-0.
Sharapova did manage to settle finally, but it was too late since Muguruza clumped down an ace and got a score of 5-1.
The five-times Grand Slam champion drilled a backhand winner down the line so that she could hold again in the next game. She even clenched her fist while walking towards the chair.
However, this anti-climactic match ended the way it was predicted. Sharapova’s backhand nestled in the net which was her 27th unforced error.
Miguruza who was a winner two years ago, will now face the number one Simona Halep in her next match.
