That was sufficient in a set where 13th seeded Keys committed 23 unforced errors. "[It] shows me that I have enough patience, I have enough power inside to stay calm and just to play what I have to play against her", she said. I was, like, 'OK, next round.' That's just kind of how you handle it. "And I am very motivated out there too - it was a Grand Slam quarter-final".
But they hadn't played since 2014, back before Muguruza was as confident and successful as she is these days.
"I lost three times until now and no one died", Halep said, "so it will be OK".

Muguruza won 58 percent of her return points and broke six times in her quarterfinal victory. Watching her ranking rise is "somewhat of a reward for the efforts, whether they are small or large", she said.
Muguruza pounced on Sharapova's errors to lead 4-0.

Swimmers are preparing for the U.S. Championships in late July, a qualifying meet for the Pan Pacific Championships in August and the 2019 World Championships. Muguruza won the French Open in 2016, then Wimbledon a year ago.
In fact, her next match win after the US Open did not come until Acapulco in February.
She has acknowledged having trouble handling her nerves, which is part of why she was so proud about the way she overcame Kerber, a two-time major champion and former No 1.
