Paris, France - Former champion Maria Sharapova fought her way into the semifinals at the French Open on Tuesday. The seventh-seeded former world No. 1 star Sharapova came from behind to beat rising 20-year-old Venezuelan-born Spaniard Garbine Muguruza, 1-6, 7-5, 6-1, on Court Chatrier. Muguruza, who displays easy power and a beautiful forehand and serve, shocked defending champion Serena Williams in the second round here last week. Sharapova trailed 6-1, 5-4 against Muguruza before suddenly catching fire and winning nine of the last 10 games on Day 10. The Russian also posted a comeback victory against Sam Stosur in the fourth round, winning nine straight games after trailing that one, 6-3, 4-3, against her fellow former U.S. Open champ. The 27-year-old Sharapova saved five break points while serving at 2-1 in the third set on Tuesday and then won the next game for a double-break lead, at 4-1, and cruised from there versus Muguruza to reach her fifth career French Open semi, including four straight. Sharapova avoided becoming the latest upset victim in the womens draw, which has lost seven of the top-10 seeds. The veteran Sharapova improved to 18-3 in major quarterfinals and won her 48th match at Roland Garros (against 10 losses), breaking a tie with Williams for the most among active female players. Sharapova completed a career Grand Slam with a French Open title in 2012 and lost to Williams in last years marquee finale at Roland Garros. The Russians semifinal opponent will be the 18th-seeded Eugenie Bouchard, who upended 14th-seeded Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro, 7-6 (7-4), 2-6, 7-5, on Court Lenglen. Bouchard came back from a break down in the final set. The 20-year-old Bouchard will appear in her second Grand Slam semi in as many tries this year, as she was a surprise Australian Open semifinalist back in January. Shes 0-2 lifetime against Sharapova, including a straight-set second-round French Open loss last year. Two more quarterfinals will be staged on Wednesday, when fourth-seeded Romanian Simona Halep takes on 27th-seeded Russian Svetlana Kuznetsova and 10th-seeded Italian Sara Errani battles 28th-seeded German Andrea Petkovic. The former world No. 2 and former U.S. Open champion Kuznetsova titled here in 2009 and was the Roland Garros runner-up in 2006. Errani was the 2012 French Open runner-up to Sharapova.

I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video.

Given ample opportunity to squash a quarterback controversy, Chip Kelly chose to be evasive. So, the debate continues for the Philadelphia Eagles. Foles filled in nicely for an injured Vick for the second straight week, leading the Eagles (3-3) to a 31-20 win over winless Tampa Bay on Sunday. Next up is a showdown with Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys (3-3) at home. Sole possession of first place in the NFC East is at stake. Will Foles start again or will it be Vick? Kelly fielded 11 straight questions about his QBs during his Monday news conference without giving any definite answers. "Until we know what the health is, Im not saying what anybody or anybody is," Kelly said. "All our decisions on who is going to play is based on health." Vick strained his left hamstring late in the second quarter of a win at the New York Giants last week. Foles stepped in and threw for 197 yards and two touchdowns. The second-year pro was even better against the Buccaneers, passing for 296 yards and three TDs and running in for a score. Before he was injured, Vick was playing well, too. Hes thrown for 1,185 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions, and has 307 yards rushing and two more scores. "All of our decisions are made on whats going to give us the best opportunity to win," Kelly said. "And we have to put healthy guys on the field and make sure we can get a scheme together thats going to help us beat the Cowboys." Issues like this can divide a locker room with teammates choosing sides. Vick and Foles have both said all the right things and been supportive of one another. "I dont see any divisions or one side going one way or another side going another," Kelly said. "Mike wasnt 100 per cent on Sunday, and Nick did an outstanding job. And I said when this whole thing started, we were fortunate that we had two quarterbacks and it showed already this season that youve got to have two really good quarterbacks to win in this league and thatss what I feel we are right now.dddddddddddd" Running back LeSean McCoy made it seem that Kelly told the team Vick is the starter when hes healthy. "Mike is the starter, Coach Kelly made that clear, but if he needs Nick to step in and make some plays then hell do that," McCoy said after the win in Tampa Bay. "Mikes the guy we go with, hes the starting quarterback, no matter what the town says or what the outsiders want. Its Coach Kellys call and thats the call hes made." But Kelly disputed McCoys statement. "I have no idea what hes talking about," he said. "Me and LeSean, we didnt talk about anything like that after the game so I dont know where the reference of after the game, I said that, so I dont know." Vick was limited in practice last week, but he was active against the Buccaneers as the No. 3 quarterback. Hamstring injuries are tricky and running is a major part of Vicks game so perhaps an extra week of rest would help. Kelly has no reason to rush Vick back since Foles has played so well. The Eagles have saved their season, have won consecutive games, and there is a feel-good vibe surrounding the club. So the coach has every reason to play it smart. Foles has completed 67.2 per cent of his passes for 542 yards, six TDs, zero interceptions and has a passer rating of 127.9. "I think Mikes legs are a big, important part of his game and thats part of the decision in terms of what he is and what he can do and his effectiveness," Kelly said. "Just how does he run around and how is he in practice, can he execute the way we need him to execute." Vick will get his first chance this week to prove hes ready to go when the Eagles return to practice on Tuesday. __ NOTES: LT Jason Peters, S Patrick Chung and RB Chris Polk each have shoulder injuries and arent expected to practice fully on Tuesday. ... Eagles signed WR B.J. Cunningham and released TE Emil Igwenagu. ___ Online: AP NFL site: http://pro32.ap.org/ ___ Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_RobMaaddi ' ' '
