After 2 hours and 14 minutes, Halep rallied past the 12th-seeded Kerber 6-7 (2), 6-3, 6-2 and reached the French Open semifinals for the third time.Halep got off a sluggish start and trailed 4-0 in the opening set. Halep is still chasing her first Grand Slam title after several near misses. She led Jelena Ostapenko by a set and 3-0 in last year's final at Roland Garros, but then fell apart and eventually lost to the unseeded Latvian in her second French Open final. Halep next faces third-seeded Garbine Muguruza, who beat Maria Sharapova 6-2, 6-1 in a matchup of past French Open champions.The No. 3-seeded Muguruza had lost all three previous meetings against Sharapova, who won two of her five Grand Slam titles at Roland Garros.
