Karolína Plíšková

How could we forget about Karolína Plíšková?! The rankings of players differ on the various websites, but according to the WTA Rankings, Plíšková is ranked closely behind Serena Williams at No. 3.

The experts have favored Simona Halep (4) to win her first ever Grand Slam title at Roland Garros. Elina Svitolina (6) is also a popular pick. It turns out that Halep and Svitolina will meet in the Quarterfinals and the winner could play Plíšková in the Semis.

Caroline Wozniacki (12) is still in it. She has come close to winning a Grand Slam a few times. Her Quarterfinal was suspended due to rain at a set a piece between her and Ostapenko. 

Timea Bacsinszky (30) who eliminated Venus Williams is also playing in the Quarterfinals today but her match was suspended as well versus Miladenovic. Bacsinszky was up a set.

Wozniacki and Bacsinszky could meet in the Semifinals.

Men’s Singles

Although Rafael Nadal (4) is not in his prime, the ‘King of Clay’ is still in it and has been playing well. Of course we know that he could meet Novak Djokovic (2) in the Semis. But Djokovic has the challenge of defeating Dominic Thiem (6) in the Quarterfinals first.

Marin Cilic (7) defeated Gaël Monfils and will play Stan Wawrinka (3) in the Quarterfinals.

World no. 1 Andy Murray will play Kei Nishikori (8) in the Quarterfinals.

Suga thinks we may have a Murray-Wawrinka Semifinal.

Stay tuned!
