Seventh-seeded Gabriela Dabrowski and Rohan Bopanna won the mixed doubles title at the French Open. The organizing committee announced that the game would resume at 4:45 p.m., but that has been changed three times until 6:30 p.m. local time.

Bacsinszky, a semifinalist here in 2015, will next meet either Jelena Ostapenko or Caroline Wozniacki.

She finds the fact that she'll be playing Ostapenko on the day of their birthdays fairly amusing.

Bacsinszky will be 28; Ostapenko will turn 20. "I think it's pretty cool, though".

Pierce, who is a WTA Finals ambassador, said: "Bacsinszky is older and more experienced but Ostapenko will likely be the one who comes out with a lot of energy".

The Latvian teenager, ranked 47th in the world, did not wilt after dropping the first set to the 26-year-old Wozniacki, the world No. 12, who has played in two Grand Slam finals.

Only two matches were finished, while the scheduled men's quarter-finals didn't even start and were instead moved to Wednesday. In the quarterfinals Bacsinszky in two sets stopped hope France's Kristina Mladenovic.

But the French 13th seed said the anguish of that defeat would not factor into her approach as she looks to the reach last four of a Grand Slam for the first time.

The Spaniard only found her groove in the second set, but did not play the aggressive style that allowed her to storm to the title past year. The Swiss won a 22-stroke rally with a backhand smash, Mladenovic came back from two break points with another wonderful rally, and would battle though four deuces and another break point before Bacsinszky fired a cracking backhand victor to edge the break.

If the violence is directed at Muslims as was the case recently in London and Virgina, Trump ignores the attacks and stays silent. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution, where he'll receive a mental health assessment, according to the statement.

"To play semi-final of Roland Garros on your birthday, I think it's really nice".

"Maybe her game suits these kind of conditions better, so, you know, at times when I wanted to be more aggressive, I did too many errors". I still had some opportunities here and there but didn't make it.

Djokovic's progress has been troublesome in comparison, being stretched to five sets by Diego Schwartzman in round three - but the battle-hardened Serb is well-versed in the business end of slams and usually raises his game.

Stay tuned to see how Ostapenko fares in the semifinals at the French Open. In the sixth game, Ostapenko blasted a backhand that Wozniacki could barely get her racket on and it was now 4-2.

If the weather gods tried to assist Mladenovic in one way, in another way they did not.

"Kiki-Kiki-Kiki" rumbled around the stadium, and the 24-year-old levelled matters up with a break of her own.

But Mladenovic said there was nothing wrong with the atmosphere.

She certainly needed quick footwork to handle the bad wind that wreaked havoc on her quarter-final with Caroline Wozniacki on Tuesday.
