French Open set for new women's champ

Plus, all eight women who play for quarterfinal berths Monday are seeking a first major title.

Venus Williams wasn't in the most talkative of moods Sunday after a three-set loss at the French Open. How right those folks were.

"I think the crowd today was a little bit obviously tough for me".

Mladenovic is coming off a good claycourt season. After losing her crown on her 33rd unforced error, she walked off, briefly wagging her finger at the partisan home crowd.

The French Open will have a new Queen.

The two have met each other only once - in 2015 at Marrakech - and it was a straight set win for Mladenovic and given the Frenchwomen's current form and her home support, she is expected to get the win today too.

However, though the fourth seed can be very good, she can be erratic and extremely error prone as she generally has been since her triumph in Paris a year ago; she has not reached a final since.

But the Spaniard has been repeatedly answering questions recently about whether expectations are different now that she is a major champion and whether that sort of pressure might affect her on court.

Muguruza's defeat means Justine Henin, who won the title in 2003 and then from 2005 to 2007, remains the last woman to successfully defend her crown at Roland Garros. I would say a little bit better than the first round but the opponent was different so she was playing much faster. It's thanks to you that I fought for every point.

"The US Open and Australian Open gives me some confidence", said Pliskova.

Muguruza's sharp movement and strong serve are well suited to Roland Garros, and she is bound to test Mladenovic, whose struggles with a back injury may be significant.

"It's a very painful defeat here in the French Open", she said afterwards. No. 5 Milos Raonic had been playing out of his mind in the previous rounds on clay, but could not handle No. 20 Pablo Carreno Busta. Sunday, June 4, 2017. She can now make that twice after a 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 win over Muguruza that was not short on drama.

"I was not thinking a lot because it's, you know, a lot of thinking in this tournament for me in the matches and stuff, so I try to go out there and block everything and just think about what I have to do to win".

"Kiki! Kiki!", the crowd chanted again in an electric atmosphere, declaring their love back to Mladenovic.

Qualifier Martic continued her extraordinary surge towards the Roland Garros crown with a 6-1 6-1 mauling of Latvian 17th seed Anastasija Sevastova.
