Halep reunited with Cahill in Madrid after the Adelaide mentor walked away following her mid-match emotion in Miami. She is not going to lose this title. "Hopefully I can take advantage of that". "I'm not thinking about that". "I was just trying to stay aggressive and to go for a shot when I could". Either way, it promises to be an intriguing final - the go-for-broke hitter against the supreme mover. And she just turned 20, the day she booked her spot in the final!
"But, of course, I take the pressure because I love it".
Top-ranked Andy Murray has won the opening set against third-seeded Stan Wawrinka 7-6 (6) in the French Open semifinals. "Then every match I was playing better and better".
"This match is really important and I will not hide the heaviness that it has", Halep said. "It's pretty fast, and I think it fits my game pretty well". I don't know what to expect from her. Halep is coached by Australia's Darren Cahill, who has previously guided Lleyton Hewitt and Andre Agassi to grand slam glory. "So it's going to be a big thing if I will do tomorrow".

"He actually called my mom".
"I say always that I play well with the pressure, but now, I don't need it". That's what she told me, because nobody knows my phone.
Had Halep been fully fit, she would've been most people's favourite but for her to make such a swift recovery has been remarkable.
Ostapenko backs that claim when she unleashes her not-so-secret weapon, a lethal forehand, that clocks in at 76 miles per hour (that's 2 miles per hour faster than Andy Murray's).
The second-seeded Czech fended off three break points on her way to claiming the second set 6-3, clinching it with a forehand victor on her second set point. You can live-stream the action at Roland Garros through NBC Sports Live Extra in the USA or Eurosport Player in the UK.
