Svitolina wasted no time in the first set and grabbed a quick 5-0 lead before closing the frame out 6-1, and she kept her foot to the floor in the second set and closed out the No. All in all, it took Svitolina 56 minutes to dispatch Halep and set up Sunday's date with Wozniacki.And while Svitolina is sure to have heavier legs in the final after playing two matches Saturday, she does hold an upper hand over Wozniacki if previous head-to-head battles have been any indication.All told, Wozniacki won 50 percent of first-serve return points, a number that bested Stephens' mark by 12 percent.By virtue of the win, Wozniacki is primed to make her sixth championship appearance this season.The total prize money shelled out for the championship, per diem excluded, will be just over million, up 14.07 percent from last year.
Roland Garros, also known as the French Open, is one of four major tennis tournaments that make up the vaunted Grand Slam.
Spots in the Rogers Cup finals were up for grabs Saturday, with Roger Federer and Caroline Wozniacki headlining the action in the men's and women's draws, respectively. Denis Shapovalov; 6-4, 7-5 Federer is the hottest player in tennis, and it's not close.
But before they could hit the court, women's quarterfinals in Toronto that were postponed Friday due to rain had to be completed. That notion was reinforced Saturday in a big way when the 36-year-old continued to channel his prime with a straight-set victory over Dutch challenger Robin Haase. I think my concentration and just my playing has gone up a notch. Now it will be up to Alexander Zverev to try to dethrone Federer after he outlasted Shapovalov were deadlocked through the stanza's first 10 games, but the German finally broke through for a break at 6-5 and managed to hold following several strong challenges from the teenager in order to book a matchup with Federer.
In March 2016, Sharapova shocked the tennis world when she announced she failed a drug test at the Australian Open.
She was provisionally suspended and Nike immediately suspended the million contract they signed with her in 2010.
