Serena Williams calls Maria Sharapova's book 'hearsay'

"I don't know how the other players are before the matches, but I think I am very nervous before every match, and this is because I am like this", said Halep.

Sharapova, victor of the title in Paris in 2012 and 2014, will now face the victor of No.3 seed Garbiñe Muguruza and Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko for a spot in the semifinals.

"No, because she knew I would tell her not to play the doubles", he told the AP.

Williams paid the price of contesting six singles and doubles matches in seven days after just four matches in the previous 16 months following childbirth past year.

Advocates target separation of immigrant families at border

"I gave up so much to time with my daughter and my family and put everything on court for this moment", she said. "But I try to improve this thing, and I try to enjoy my nerves, because they are special when you play in a Grand Slam".

However, on Sunday she took part in a third-round doubles match with sister Venus, losing 6-4 6-7 (4) 6-0 to Andreja Klepac and Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez, and apparently aggravated an injury she had first felt the previous day.

"It's very hard, because I love playing Maria", she added. So it's extremely disappointing.

Williams said she first was troubled by her pectoral muscle during the best performance of her return, a 6-3, 6-4 win in the third round against 11th-seeded Julia Goerges on Saturday. And while she's "pretty much had every injury in the book", this was the first time dealing with this particular malady. "I would have made her cancel the doubles, believe me".

Tariffs row with Canada 'family quarrel'
Morneau has said Ottawa is buying the project from Kinder Morgan Canada in order to help the expansion overcome political risks. Canada , China and the European Union also announced they will address these actions at the World Trade Organization .

"But also, I made a promise to myself and to my coach and to my team that if I'm not at least 60 per cent or 50 per cent, then I probably shouldn't play".

"I tried a lot of different tapings and support and it didn't really get a lot better", the American added.

"Physically I'm doing great". Her total of 23 Grand Slam singles titles marks the record for the most Grand Slam wins by a tennis player in the Open Era. I sacrificed so much to be at this event. "I think it's these kind of new situations that she'll go home and learn a lot about how she is feeling", Clijsters added.

In a statement released by the tournament, Sharapova wished Williams "a speedy recovery".
