Nadal into quarters, Muguruza out

Portugal's Joao Sousa eyes the ball as he plays Serbia's Novak Djokovic during their second round match of the French Open tennis tournament at the Roland Garros stadium Wednesday French Open 2017: Garbine Muguruza reaches fourth round
Isaac Mcdaniel | 05 June, 2017, 08:40

A tearful GarbiƱe Muguruza hit out at the crowd after her title defence was ended by France's Kristina Mladenovic.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic survived his first stern test at the French Open on Friday, as he came from two sets to one down to overcome world number 41 Diego Schwartzman 5-7 6-3 3-6 6-1 6-1 and move into the last 16.

"When I was on my chair at that point, I thought it was over, but you gave me strength", she told the crowd. "You know, I just think it went to her side, and that's all".

"She had so many answers today", said Williams, who also lost to Bacsinszky in the fourth round a year ago.

She said in her post-match interview: "It's a match that was eagerly awaited by everyone, myself included".

"I have no words to describe the love I have for you", said Mladenovic, who rallied from 5-2 down in the third set to set up a date with defending champion Garbine Muguruza on Monday.

But Mladenovic played superbly on the big points, pumping her fist and screaming after every one, and Muguruza's resistance wilted in a poor final game.

Richard Gasquet retired from his all-French third-round match against Gael Monfils at Roland Garros after getting treatment on his right thigh.

It reminded me of why she's a Grand Slam champion.

Mrs Mills said the attack had "thrown a group of people in hospital together that probably never would have met". We are canceling tickets of those who are reselling wherever possible", the account tweeted.

Only once in his Grand Slam career did Nadal fare better on the way to the quarterfinals at a major: He lost 19 games through four matches in 2012 at the French Open.

"I don't really feel I am favorite on paper on the clay", Pliskova said.

The 13th seed came close to losing in both the first and third rounds and must now refocus for a last-eight clash with either Venus Williams or Timea Bacsinszky. Honestly, no, I don't think it was unsportsmanlike or unfair or anything.

It was the second year in a row the Swiss had beaten Williams in the fourth round. She has never won the French Open and this is her 20th appearance in the event. "I also believe that you kind of attract, you know, certain things that when you are, you know, living under stress and fear of everything".

Nadal continued his ruthless form by dispatching Spanish 17th seed Roberto Bautista Agut 6-1, 6-2, 6-2. I was looking forward to play center court, but it's fine, I had so many matches on Lenglen.

Bacsinszky's best result at a major tournament was reaching the semi-finals at Roland Garros in 2015.

In the first round, she was 0-3 down in the decider against Jennifer Brady of the United States before winning it 9-7.

Muguruza can not be a stranger to that kind of atmosphere - she has played in three away ties for Spain in Fed Cup.

In remaining women's third-round matches, second-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic brushed aside Germany's Carina Witthoeft 7-5, 6-1; No. 5 Elina Svitolina of Ukraine won 6-4, 7-5 against Magda Linette, and Croatian qualifier Petra Martic upset 17th-seeded Anastasija Sevastova 6-1 6-1.
