Barty wrapped it up when the American netted a weary-looking forehand, the 12th unforced error of the set for the 23-time major victor. "I'm playing tougher opponents and I'm hanging in there", said Williams, whose trophy collection includes three Suzanne Lenglen Cups.
The most-anticipated matchup for a quarterfinal spot at Roland Garros pits 23-time major champion Williams against five-time major champion Sharapova.
Sharapova has won just two of their 21 meetings, including the 2004 Wimbledon final which she covered in some detail in her autobiography released previous year.
Sharapova is the sharper player and is coming off her best performance yet, but I'm not ready to say she's back and somebody I'm looking to bet on.
Williams and Sharapova have won five French Open singles titles between them, and both have played extremely well over the first three rounds at Roland Garros.
"I think anytime you play against Serena, you know what you are up against", Sharapova told reporters. It's a Wimbledon final, you know?
Ashleigh Barty was left to reflect on what might have been after she bowed out the French Open second round to Serena Williams on Thursday. "I managed to stay aggressive and I played smart as well", said Sharapova, who delighted a half-full stadium by thanking them for their support in French. I've just started, so I'm just really trying to get my bearings and trying to feel out where I am and see where I can go.
"I think what speaks for itself is that desire to keep doing that and the knowledge that we have that - that is still the driving force for everything we do". "I didn't expect to be reading a book about me, that wasn't necessarily true".
"This will be a good opportunity for me [to] kind of to see where I am and just hopefully continue to go forward".
This was the third Grand Slam final meeting between Williams and Sharapova at a third different tournament: Sharapova beat Williams at Wimbledon in 2004 and Williams won their 2007 Australian Open title match.
Spanish third seed Muguruza, the 2016 victor in Paris and the reigning Wimbledon champion, fired 15 winners past Stosur, the 34-year-old 2010 runner-up and former US Open champion.
However, the 36-year-old rallied, breaking twice in the second set and then once in the third to win in one hour and 48 minutes.
The match lasted just 59 minutes. Two-time Paris runner-up Halep booked a place in the fourth round with a 7-5, 6-0 victory and next faces in-form Belgian Elise Mertens. "She gets out of matches or wins matches she has no right to win".
Halep has twice lost in the final at Roland Garros, including previous year.
In contrast, the service game of both players dipped markedly in the second set, with points won on the first serve falling by an average of 27%. She had played only four matches - going 2-2 - all season until this week.
