Garbine Muguruza v Maria Sharapova Live
Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova will face Garbine Muguruza of Spain at the quarter finals of the French Open at the Roland Garros in Paris.
Maria Sharapova was able to get past Samantha Stosur in three sets after a significant scare. Stosur had a golden opportunity to cause an upset when she led Sharapova by a set. However, Sharapova clawed back into the match in the second set which she won 6-4 before unleashing her wrath on a hapless Stosur in the third and final set which she won 6-0 to book her place in the quarter final.
The French Open 2014 has seen some surprising exits at an early stage and Sharapova has to be credited for holding her nerve when she was in danger of following the likes of the Williams sisters out of the tournament. Sharapova has had a good buildup to the tournament and has nine wins out of a possible ten compared to seven out of ten for the Spanish Muguruza.
Garbine Muguruza beat Pauline Parmentier of France 6-4, 6-2 in straight sets in order to proceed to the quarter finals. She is in a rich vein of form at the present time as she had been the one who had ousted Serena Williams in the second round.
The duo have faced each other once before in Rome 2013. Incidentally, the match was played on clay and Sharapova had got the better of her opponent in straight sets on the occasion. Just based on the recent form of the two players, this should be a cracker of a tennis match.
