Keys rallies back to beat Putintseva and reach Paris semi-finals

Garcia saved four match points when serving while trailing 5-1.

After a timid start, she took her chances and did not choke when it came to wrapping it up.

The victor will play either top-seeded Simona Halep or third-seeded Gabine Muguruza for the title Saturday.

Garcia's loss means there are no French men or women remaining in the tournament. Her mother, Christina, is an attorney who gave up her practice for several years to move to Boca Raton in search of better training for her three tennis-playing daughters.

Thomas Hogstedt tells The Associated Press "it was a shock". Her forehand is her biggest weapon off the ground, and whilst her large take back can cause her problems on faster court surfaces, on clay where she is afforded more time she is able to confidently and consistently dictate with it. Keys confirmed she's gaining patience, as she said before the match. She's more patient now, and knows better how to pick her spots. Tomorrow's coverage may also feature the continuation of the men's quarterfinal matches that were suspended earlier today due to rain.

The top-ranked Spaniard beat unseeded Maximilian Marterer 6-3, 6-2, 7-6 (4).

Stephens hasn't dropped a set since.

Nadal patted Marterer sympathetically on the chest at the net after winning on his second match point.

Anderson twice served for the match, at 5-4 in the third and fourth sets. This is Robinson's 19th French Open for NBC.

Severed rattlesnake head bites Texas man, almost kills him
It should go without saying, he said, but no one should be trying to pick up a rattlesnake, dead or alive. An anti-venom doctor told Gizmodo that snake's heads can continue to function hours after being cut off.

Muguruza fired a shot heard round the world - or at least heard around the Bois de Boulogne - on Wednesday when she overpowered that savage ball striker, Maria Sharapova.

Kasatkina has beaten Wozniacki three times this year.

Keys started with a semi-final showing on green clay in Charleston in April, before heading to France where she helped U.S. defeat the hosts in Fed Cup.

U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens is through to the French Open semifinals for the first time.

"I've been getting my own stringing done, today we should practice at this time, let's see who is open".

Halep in the semi-finals unexpectedly confidently defeated the third racket of the world Garbine Muguruza.

The duo contested the title at Flushing Meadows previous year, a match that Stephens won for her first Grand Slam victory.

They advanced to their seventh Grand Slam final at the Australian Open in January and won their 12th doubles trophy together at the Madrid Open.

Halep, who lost in last year's final, was playing 16th-seeded Elise Mertens. She also was coming off a lopsided victory in the quarterfinals a day earlier, overwhelming Sharapova 6-2, 6-1. "Another great opportunity on Saturday, and I'm really looking forward to it", said Stephens, whose late father, John, was the 1988 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year with the New England Patriots.
