  1. Until Saturday...

    Simona Halep

    But, that is all from us from Roland Garros for today.

    Missed how the women's final four was whittled down to two, check our report over here.

    Sloane Stephens
  2. Reid beats fellow Briton Hewett

    Gordon Reid

    Elsewhere Gordon Reid beat defending champion and world number one Alfie Hewett in an all-British quarter-final of the men's wheelchair singles at the French Open.

    Scotland's Reid came through 6-4 6-4 in 90 minutes against his doubles partner.

    It was the first time the pair had been drawn togetherin the opening round of a Grand Slam.

  3. Mixed double success


    The first bit of silverware has already been dished out at Roland Garros with Croatia's Ivan Dodig and Taiwan's Latisha Chan picking up the mixed doubles title, beating top seeds Mate Pavic and Gabriele Dabrowski.

  4. Head to head

    Keys 4-6 4-6 Stephens

    Simona Halep has had the best of her recent meetings with Sloane Stephens.

    The Romanian has won all four of their most recent meetings without dropping a set.

  5. Post update

    Sloane Stephens talking on court: "It's always hard playing someone from your country and your friend. I was pleased to get through that and play some good tennis.

    "This is one of my favourite tournaments. I've got another great opportunity on Saturday and I'm really looking forward to it."

  6. Game, set and match Stephens

    Keys 4-6 4-6 Stephens

    And she finishes like she has played throughout.

    A dead-eyed backhand down the line is precise and perfect.

    She will give Simona Halep one heck of a test in the final.

  7. Two match points Stephens

    Keys 4-6 4-5 *Stephens

    Madison Keys bashes a forehand long - her 40th unforced error.

    Sloane Stephens takes a deep breath as she collects the balls to serve again.

    Thirty-love and two points away.

    Make that two match points...

  8. Post update

    Keys 4-6 4-5 *Stephens

    Madison Keys playing devil-may-care tennis, refusing to fall on her own sword.

    Sloane Stephens will now attempt to serve out for a second time...

  9. Keys breaks

    *Keys 4-6 3-5 Stephens

    Well, well.

    Madison Keys keeps her cards on the table as Sloane Stephens' smooth progress suddenly hits some bumps.

    The US Open champions has another break in the bag for insurance though.

    She will get another try to serve out. If she doesn't break Keys in the next game.

  10. Stephens breaks

    Keys 4-6 2-5 *Stephens

    Relentless power, depth and placement from Sloane Stephens forces Madison Keys all out of shape.

    An all-or-nothing backhand down the line from Keys to salvage something is....long on the umpires review.

    Stephens serves for the match and a place in the final next.

  11. Keys faces second break point

    *Keys 4-6 2-4 Stephens

    Madison Keys is really walking the tightrope now.

    She knocks back one break point, but a double fault brings up a second...

  12. Post update

    *Keys 4-6 2-4 Stephens

    Sloane Stephens races into a 40-0 lead.

    She is given a moment to think as Madison Keys guides a lovely deft drop volley.

    But along with the pearls, Keys' game throws up plenty of gravel.

    Another unforced error relieves Stephens of any gremlins.

  13. Post update

    Keys 4-6 2-3 *Stephens

    Maidson Keys has three game points at 40-0 up.

    A fluffed volley into the top of the net. Could that be the oxygen that brings Sloane Stephens to life in this game?

    Nope. A shovelled backhand wide from Stephens.

    Madison Keys
  14. Post update

    *Keys 4-6 1-3 Stephens

    Sloane Stephens is purring like an German-built saloon on the local autobahn.

    There has not been a single tremour or waver yet to make you think she could implode. And that feels the more likely way that Madison Keys could end up winning from here.

  15. Post update

    Keys 4-6 1-2 *Stephens

    Madison Keys pierces Sloane Stephens' defences with a backhand winner right out of the heart of the stings.

    She is on the board in the second set. But she is playing catch-up. And that is not where you want to be when you have only created two break points all match...

  16. Post update

    *Keys 4-6 0-2 Stephens

    Sloane Stephens is playing such spotless tennis. The sort of game that would be welcome in an operating theatre.

    Madison Keys chases to the far corners to claw back a couple of nearly winners.

    But it is all in vain.

    Stephens slots away the volley - exactly the sort that Keys missed in the previous game - to snuff her out of the game.

    Sloane Stephens
  17. Stephens breaks

    Keys 4-6 0-1 *Stephens

    Madison Keys coughs up a double fault on game point.

    She is trapped in this tie-break, everywhere she turns is Sloane Stephens returning her best shot.

    Another break chance for Stephens.

    Keys comes to the net once more, trying to cut down Stephens reaction time.

    But that is a miserable volley, into the net from right in the front court and a comfortable height.

    Stephens noses ahead.

  18. Keys saves two break points, deuce

    *Keys 4-6 Stephens

    Sloane Stephens with 15-30 and a chance of an early break in the second set.

    A superb point from the US Open champion soaking up relentless forehand power from Keys and then tickling the lovely lob over the top as her opponent advances to the net.

    Two break points.

    Keys courageously faces down both. But she is not out of the woods yet...

  19. Game and first set Stephens

    *Keys 4-6 Stephens

    Bingo, bango.

    All very business like from Sloane Stephens who racks up three set points and then sees Madison Keys leak her 23 unforced error of an inconsistent first set.

    Stephens is just more tidy, more consistent. While it might not make for much of a highlights reel, it does wonders for the scoreboard.

    Sloane Stephens
  20. Post update

    Keys 3-5*Stephens

    The trouble when you are playing Sloane Stephens is that there are Labradors less intent on chasing down moving tennis balls.

    Her superb chasing and scurrying means that Madison Keys has to trim her margins and max out her power to hit winners.

    Keys does enough in this game to stay in the set, but she will have to keep playing right at the roof of her game.
