From the start, Justine Henin-Hardenne's wide variety of sharply angled shots had Maria Sharapova staggering across the clay in vain pursuit. With drop shots, deft volleys and picturesque backhands, Henin-Hardenne kept Sharapova on the run Tuesday and easily advanced to the French Open semifinals, winning 6-4, 6-2.
