Maria Sharapova Out Of The French Open
Maria Sharapova bids goodbye to her chance of winning another Roland Garros trophy this year.
The defending champion bowed to No. 13 seed, Lucie Safarova, in the fourth round, 7-6, 7-3, 6-4.
This was her first victory against the Russian who had a subdued play in the fourth round.
In an interview, Sharapova dismissed that an illness caused her bad performance. “I’m still a competitor no matter what.”
The Czech, 28, will face Spain’s Garbine Muguruza in the last eight. This will be Safarova’s first time in the Roland Garros quarter finals.
