Muguruza thrashes Sharapova to reach semi-finals

The Spanish third seed thrashed Sharapova 6-2, 6-1 in the quarter-finals, condemning the Russian to her worst Grand Slam defeat in more than six years.

Halep seized her chance, moving 0-40 ahead and then raising her arms in triumph as Muguruza blazed a backhand long - her 31st unforced error of the match. However, if you're picking this match based on the current form, you can't pick against Muguruza. It would have been the pair's 22nd meeting. "I just try to keep that going".

After her third-round win against Julia Goerges, Williams charged at Sharapova's book, questioning why it wasn't truthful - at least to her - and why Sharapova was so obsessed with her as a subject. Now I just have to go find her, because I need to tell her some juicy stuff.

"I think there is a lot of autobiographies out in the world, especially in the sporting world, that don't necessarily speak about whether they were rivals or someone they competed against".

"I will focus on myself, like I did every match here. If I do that, I will be okay after the match, no matter the result". I think everything will be normal.

In full swing: Garbine Muguruza hardly broke a sweat en route to her first victory over Maria Sharpova. It was an emphatic performance for Muguruza, who made it to the fourth round of the US Open last year and just the second round of the Australian Open earlier this year.

Keys will have to be patient in this semi-final, and only pull the trigger when she's ready to finish off the point.

"She was playing incredible right away, and I think I should have done something a little bit better to not let it go so fast".

A rare misplaced groundstroke from Halep gave third seed Muguruza a break to get on the board at 5-1, but Halep put away another forehand victor to take a one-sided opening set.

Sharapova never recovered from serving up 3 double faults in the first game. "So to come out of these weeks and feel fairly healthy is a great thing".

Halep goals have shifted and particularly this tournament she has been open about handling her nerves coming into the tournament, the matches, occasionally having to bounce back from bad starts against Alison Riske in her first round - or Angelique Kerber in her quarter-final win on Wednesday.

The 10th-seeded Stephens will bid for her second major title when she takes on Halep.
