French Open Roland Garros Pont des Arts bridge love locks

Now, some unfinished business

The men were rained out on Tuesday at Roland Garros, and the women's matches were all upsets as shared-birthday girls Timea Bacsinszky and teen Jelena Ostapenko set up an unlikely semifinal in more ways than one.

Bacsinszky will be 28; Ostapenko will turn 20.

The No. 32 seed Zhang set her personal best at Roland Garros by reaching the last 32 with two victories over unseeded players, before facing a tougher challenge from the two-time Grand Slam singles victor Kuznetsova. Coming into Tuesday's match, Ostapenko led the head-to-head match-up against Wozniacki 3-0, including wins on clay in Charleston and Prague this season.

"She served pretty well, and then I just got my game back (so afterwards) I felt quite confident".

Venus Williams lost in the fourth round of the French Open to 30th-seeded Timea Bacsinszky of Switzerland on Sunday meaning the tournament will produce a first-time Grand Slam champion.

The men's quarter-finals featuring nine-time champion Rafael Nadal and holder Novak Djokovic were postponed until Wednesday after two rain delays disrupted Tuesday's play.

The first Latvian woman to reach a Grand Slam semifinal in the professional era, Ostapenko credits her strong footwork to a hobby, ballroom dancing (she prefers the samba).

It was Bacsinszky's 14th victory in her last 16 matches in Paris.

Cardiff pitch gave 'home advantage' to Pakistan: Eoin Morgan
Pakistan would bowl brilliantly restricting the flow of runs and knocking England over for 211, a target they chased easily . He added: "Having watched the game against Sri Lanka , we actually didn't think it was that bad.

Andy Murray is also in action today in a reprise of last year's US Open quarter-final against Kei Nishikori.

"It was tough because we had to go away two times from the court".

An opening set where both players struggled to hold serve was sealed when Bacsinszky hit her third ace, and the Swiss held her nerve in the second set to close it out.

The second-seeded Czech fended off three break points on her way to claiming the second set 6-3, clinching it with a forehand victor on her second set point. It will be really great to play here when it will be my birthday. With only four games on the board, Bacsinszky already had 10 errors to her name, but she would begin to manage the conditions better than Mladenovic to go on a tear of five points for the break, 3-2, and she held with a superb drop shot and a volley victor.

PARIS Suddenly a Grand Slam semifinalist for the first time, Jelena Ostapenko sounded a lot like the carefree teenager she'll be for only a bit longer.

"When I came here, I didn't expect that I'm going to be in the semis, but I was playing better and better every match".

"But I love it".

French hopes now rest with Caroline Garcia, who faces world number three Karolina Pliskova today, while Elina Svitolina of the Ukraine plays Romania number three seed Simona Halep. "We had everything today: a hurricane, and sand storms, nice weather, and nearly snow.it was really complicated to stay focused throughout the day".
