VOTE: French Open women's winner? Simona Halep, Maria Sharapova, and Serena Williams in contention
She was pregnant when she won the Australian Open in January 2017 for her 23rd Grand Slam singles championship, the most for anyone during tennis' 50-year professional era.
It had been the most eagerly-awaited match of the tournament, coming just two days after Williams had blasted Sharapova's autobiography for being "100 percent hearsay" when it came to references about her.
The shock withdrawal came just minutes before she was due on Court Philippe Chatrier to face fierce rival Sharapova.
Serena Williams has called off her Grand Slam comeback, pulling out of the French Open because of a chest injury before she was supposed to play Maria Sharapova.
Despite playing just four matches in 2018 before Roland Garros, Williams played doubles in Paris with sister Venus. "I won't know [about Wimbledon] until I get those results", she said.
"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.
"I enjoyed the court and I think I've played my best match so far here". "I didn't expect to be reading a book about me, that wasn't necessarily true".
"I'm beyond disappointed. You know, I gave up so much, from time with my daughter to time with my family".
"The fact that I physically can't serve at all is a good indication that maybe I should just go back to the drawing board and stay positive and try to get better and not get it to a point where it could be a lot worse".
She will face US Open victor Sloane Stephens for a place in the semi-finals. "I wish her a speedy recovery and hope she returns to the tour soon". Her opponent, Lesia Tsurenko, stopped because of an injury after only two games.
In her last 18 straight losses to Serena, Sharapova has been able to take only three sets off her. "I would have made her cancel the doubles, believe me".
The quarterfinals Tuesday are Sloane Stephens vs. Daria Kasatkina, and Madison Keys vs. Yulia Putintseva. She played a final here. I've pretty much had every injury in the book, but this is a little different. The first time I felt it was against Goerges in my last match.
"She's been playing for over a year now".
"I think Serena can get close to winning another Grand Slam. Everybody looked forward to this match", Hogstedt said.

If you can get guarantees this would be good, but I actually think this is unlikely. "Those were my opinions then", he added. The commander of the IRGC said that European countries can not be trusted because they are followers and not independent.
