Simona Halep vowed to erase the misery of her 2017 Roland Garros heartbreak after reaching her third French Open final Thursday where she will face U.S. Open winner Sloane Stephens for the title.Halep, the runner-up in 2014 and 2017, enjoyed a 6-1, 6-4 victory over 2016 champion and third seed Garbine Muguruza of Spain.After racing through the first set, Halep saved three break points in a marathon ninth game of the second, which lasted 13 minutes.The American's last win over the 26-year-old Halep was five years ago.Halep raced into a 5-0 lead in the first set against misfiring 2016 champion Muguruza, who had blasted Maria Sharapova off court Wednesday for the loss of just three games.Muguruza settled down in the second set, moving 2-0 ahead before Halep leveled in the eighth game.
