  • Serena Williams leaves after attending her sister Venus Williams&apos tennis match against Japan's Kurumi Nara at the French Open

That's because defending French Open champion Garbine Muguruza and seven-time Grand Slam victor Venus Williams were eliminated Sunday.

"The crowd was really tough today", Muguruza said at a news conference that was halted at one point so she could compose herself after getting choked up. Add it all up, and it means that there will be a first-time major title victor at the end of the tournament.

"I love this tournament no matter what happens", she added. The Spaniard won the second set 6-3, taking it to a decider - a big feat considering the crowd, firmly behind their local player, jeered between Muguruza's first and second serves, with Mladenovic joining in to shout "Forza!" or 'push harder!' every time Muguruza faulted.

Former world No. 1 Venus Williams, the seven-time Grand Slam singles victor, fell down to Timea Bacsinszky 5-7, 6-2, 6-1, and the 2011 US Open champion Samantha Stosur was defeated by Jelena Ostapenko of Latvia at 2-6, 6-2, 6-4. No. 20 Pablo Carreno Busta, and Djokovic vs.

- The Serbian second seed will meet Austrian Dominic Thiem in the next round.

Heading into the French Open, many figured the women's draw was wide open, because of the absences of Williams' sister, Serena (who is pregnant), and Maria Sharapova (who was denied a wild-card entry that she needed as she comes off a drug suspension). "The atmosphere was just, yeah, amazing", Mladenovic said.

I obviously was a little bit nervous.

She returned to answer the question and said, "I think she speaks like 25 languages, I heard". "So, for sure, I think I have chances".

Mladenovic, one of the pre-tournament favourites, has taken the crowd by storm with her never-say-die attitude and ability to thrive under pressure, and the hope on the Roland Garros walkways is that she will succeed Mary Pierce, who was the last Frenchwoman to lift the Suzanne Lenglen Cup.

But she ran out of steam as the 27-year-old Bacsinszky, who had wasted two set points in the first set, chased her across the court and won the next two easily, clinching the match with a flawless drop shot.

"Everything wasn't flawless. There were a few concerns", Mladenovic said, before joking: "I made about 35 double-faults today, but everything's OK!"

Third seed Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland's stands between Monfils and a place in the quarter-finals. "It's very important for me to be in the quarterfinals one more time", said Nadal, who turned 31 on Saturday.
