Carla Suarez Navarro (ESP)  vs. Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) 
Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS)  vs Simona Halep (ROU) . This should be a compelling match because it is a first-time meeting and the person who wins this semifinal should have a very good chance to reach the final and attempt to stop Sharapova from her 2nd coronation in Paris. Kuznetsova is one of my longtime favorites on the women's tour and I think she is playing quite well enough in Paris to win the whole thing. Last year, she gave the eventual winner Serena Williams almost all she could handle in a tough 3-set match. I suspect history will repeat itself here. I am a big fan of Halep, havnig seen her play close-up in New York and Indian Wells in the last 9 months or so. She has been improving in every major she plays so I would not be surprised if that trend continues all the way to the final. There's a reason why she's the top remaining seed in the draw. Mad Professah's pick: Halep in 3 sets.
