French Open set for new women's champ

19 Junio 2017, 09:25 | Gerardo Tarin

Muguruza beat Serena Williams in the French Open final previous year. "That's the word I'm going to use today, because I still don't know how I won that match".

"I don't know if I have a different culture of sport. I understand. I just think that they were a little bit, sometimes should be a little bit more respectful", the 2016 champion told the gathered journalists. A moderator gently asked if she wanted to pause, and the interview was suspended for less than two minutes.

"I love this tournament no matter what happens", she added.

"If I think that I don't have chances, I will not play", Carreno Busta said.

The 23-year-old Muguruza had been complaining about the vocal and fiercely partisan crowd on Court Suzanne Lenglen during her match against France's Mladenovic when she was overcome by emotion. "It came from her, she was playing well". Of course I'm sad. And as Muguruza walked to the locker room after her defeat, she wagged a finger toward the stands as if to say, "Tsk, tsk!" "I go to a club and dance with the teacher there, he's a professional dancer".

Mladenovic, though, praised her supporters.

"It's not flawless, there are little problems but I fight as I can".

Mladenovic defended her support, saying: "I lost a final in Stuttgart against Laura Siegemund, a German player, and I thought the crowd was extremely tough there". She said: "Everything wasn't ideal".

She might lead the tournament in terms of double faults, having served 40 of them since it started - 16 yesterday.

Williams' loss means that the tournament will produce a first-time Grand Slam champion.

It will be Bacsinszky who Mladenovic faces after the 30th seed defeated Williams 5-7 6-2 6-1, meaning there will be a new grand slam champion on the women's side. Eleven points later, Mladenovic made another error, but this time she had two game points to play with for a 5-5 deadlock. As the 11th seed, on her least-effective surface, anything more would have been a bonus. But as the match went on Muguruza settled in-as the crowd settled down-and the Spaniard found her groove in the second set to force a decider.

Caroline Wozniacki, with two slam finals now the most experienced player left, continued her fine year with a surprise 6-1 4-6 6-2 victory over 2009 victor Svetlana Kuznetsova. "She's had tough matches, which shows she's in a great rhythm". This will be their first meeting on clay court.Considering how "wide open" this French Open women's draw was supposed to be, there are an very bad lot of familiar names left in the brackets as we close the first week.
