Simona Halep, Sloane Stephens in French Open women’s final
Maria Sharapova hits back at Serena Williams for '100 percent hearsay' comment about her autobiography

PARIS-Sloane Stephens enters Saturday's French Open final against No. 1 Simona Halep with a 6-0 record in tournament title matches. I'm not ever going to try to be a person that isn't nice, so that feels more authentic to me and, you know, I think I'm still doing okay.
She then raced away with the third to win 3-6 6-4 6-1.
Halep showed great fight in her quarterfinal victory, as she fought back after dropping a tough first set tiebreak and dominated in the final two sets.
"Well, for sure, I'm a little bit different because I have more experience". "I would have gone for surgery even if I hadn't been a sportswoman", she said.
After the five-time Grand Slam victor Sharapova lost in the French Open quarterfinals to Garbine Muguruza, she hit back at Williams' accusations and comments about her book. "I've had issues with the right pectoral muscle to the point where I can't serve", said the 36-year-old after withdrawing from the match. "So to be here from there, I think, is rewarding, because those times were not easy".
And though there was some brief drama when Keys conjured up a break of her own just as Stephens was serving for the match, it only served to delay the inevitable.
Many Americans struggle on the red dirt because of the lack of red clay courts in the United States but several players have managed to master the surface nonetheless.
Muguruza's last stand came at 4-all in the second set, a 13-minute game in which she held three break points. Stephens won that one, as well as the only other match the longtime friends, Fed Cup and Olympic teammates have played against each other. Halep is a three-time runner-up at majors, including in Paris in 2014 and 2017.
Keys made it to the semis with a straight-sets win over Kazakhstan's Yulia Putintseva while reigning US Open champion Stephens eased past Russia's Daria Kasatkina. I will say this, though.
Halep broke to love as Muguruza wilted in the next game, sealing her third final appearance at Roland Garros and ensuring she will stay as world number one after the tournament. She was the clear favourite previous year as well to beat Ostapenko and (somehow) managed to find a way to lose. She's been here twice and it has been an unsavoury ending both times. Prediction: "Stephens in three sets".
Still one break up, Stephens did not repeat her lapse of concentration in her next service game, clinching match point with a sumptuous backhand down the line.
She won the US Open in September on a ranking of 83 and just 69 days after returning to the tour following her near year-long absence.
