But with rain stopping third-round play Saturday for nearly five hours on all but the covered Centre Court, several matches were either postponed or suspended.

Serves hit by her surgically repaired shoulder often missed the mark, resulting in 12 double-faults. Shots that would be winners against most opponents were retrieved by Simona Halep and sent right back. Leads that usually hold up vanished in a blink. On a muggy afternoon, with the temperature in the high 70s, points were lung-searing struggles. Sharapova was up to the task.

Still, Maria Sharapova offered a tidy aphorism to sum up the formula that’s carried her to a third consecutive French Open final. “It’s not how you finish a first set,” Sharapova said, “it’s how you finish the last set.” Right now, no one is a better closer than she is on clay. Nearing a second championship at Roland Garros, and fifth Grand Slam trophy overall, Sharapova gritted her way to yet another comeback victory, beating 18th-seeded Eugenie Bouchard ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="#license-580326022014-06-05T23:27:31.407-06:00" id="#license-2014-06-05T23:27:31.407-06:00"> Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.
