Kristina Mladenovic will be the next woman to try and bring an end to Maria Sharapova's comeback after the pair set up a semi-final meeting at the Stuttgart Open on Friday.
Sharapova has not dropped a set since her return to the WTA Tour following a 15-month doping ban, the Russian's 6-3 6-4 win over Anett Kontaveit making it three wins from three in Germany.
Mladenovic, meanwhile, was similarly comfortable in seeing off Carla Suarez Navarro 6-3 6-2.
A three-time champion at this WTA Premier event, Sharapova is relishing the opportunity to get back onto the court, having been given a controversial wildcard for the tournament.
"I'm really enjoying myself," she said. "I think that's the one thing that, as I come off the court, I feel I can take away.
"When I'm in the match, I'm in the moment and focused on the next point, what I have to do. But when I come off the court, I realise how much I'm enjoying being in those moments.
"I thought I moved a lot better, and was more comfortable with the ground and the surface. Coming into the first match, I didn't have a great sense of the court, the clay, or the atmosphere, having just had a practice in the morning.
"I'm visualising tactics better, as well, focusing on patterns. I returned better, but I know I can still improve that tremendously."
Laura Siegemund and Simona Halep (4) will contest Saturday's other semi-final, after respective wins over Karolina Pliskova (2) and Anastasija Sevastova.
