2016 champ Muguruza loses to France's Mladenovic in Paris

Saturday, 10 Jun, 2017

How right those folks were.

The Spaniard, champion here a year ago, 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.

"The crowd today was a little bit tough for me".

A year after showing so much resolve while winning the French Open, Muguruza fell apart down the stretch.

The 24-year-old Mladenovic had never made it past the third round in Paris.

Mladenovic pulled off the victory despite 16 double-faults, seven in each of the last two sets at Court Suzanne-Lenglen. She then joked: "I made about 35 double faults today, but everything's OK".

Nadal, who turned 31 on Saturday and celebrated with two cakes, will next face another Spaniard, Pablo Carreno Busta, for a place in the semi-finals. It's thanks to you that I fought for every point. "It's thanks to you that I'm through and we're in the quarters, yeah!"

It is 34 years since Yannick Noah became the last men's champion and 17 since Mary Pierce lifted the women's trophy.

Mladenovic will have French company in the quarter-finals, with either Caroline Garcia or Alize Cornet to join her after their round of 16 match.

It was the second year running that Williams lost to the Swiss in the Roland Garros fourth round.

As he did at the Justice Department, Wray specializes in white collar and corporate fraud cases, only now as a defense attorney. In an early morning two-sentence tweet, Trump said he meant to nominate Wray, a high-ranking official in George W.

Williams, who turns 37 this month, earned all of those titles at Wimbledon or the U.S. Open.

The Spaniard was beaten in three sets after being blown away by her French opponent in the opening stages.

Who got upset Sunday at Roland Garros, besides more than half the players in action?

It is often hard to read Muguruza but her press conference at Roland Garros on Sunday allowed us for a few moments to get a look at the real person inside of her. So far he has lost just 20 games - a record only bettered by the 19 he lost in 2012.

Also on Day 7, 2014 U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic beat Feliciano Lopez 6-1, 6-3, 6-3, and next meets big-serving Kevin Anderson, who edged Kyle Edmund 6-7 (6), 7-6 (4), 5-7, 6-1, 6-4. Sunday, June 4, 2017.

The last time that situation occurred was at the 1979 Australian Open when Barbara Jordan won her first Grand Slam crown. Mladenovic won 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.

Kristina Mladenovic, the 13th seed, took down Muguruza in three sets, 6-1, 3-6, 6-3.

"Kiki, Kiki!" yelled the crowd as Mladenovic, a player born to Serbian parents and who speaks good English and cheers herself up in Italian, negotiated her way through the 1hr 59min clash at Roland Garros.

"You know what? I love this tournament, no matter what happens", she said.
