The women’s division is down to the Finals and now that the former top players have withdrawn due to their various reasons, the French Open title is now “open”.

Czech Barbora Krejcikova defeated Maria Sakkari with her incredible performance in a classic French Open semi-final that leads her to reach her first-ever Grand Slam final.

Krejcikova led the game with a 7-5 4-6 9-7 result that lasted for over three hours. She thought that she had won the game earlier, however, the mistake to overrule by the umpire was immediately corrected. There were intense tension and drama, yet Krejcikova still managed to keep her cool during those decisive moments.

The 25-year-old tennis player will be playing against Russian 31st seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova. She shared in the interview that she had always wanted to play to the finals. Even if she may not win the finals, she would still be proud of herself because she was fighting.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova had defeated Slovenia’s Tamara Zidansek, and this is also her first Grand Slam finals. She is remembered to be a dominant player, however, she had never reached the semi-finals. Fans are also excited to see the new faces who have reached the finals. The French Open Final will be on June 13, 2021.

On the other hand, Rafael Nadal will be playing head-to-head with another tennis superstar Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev against Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-finals. Many fans have their favorites, but many are confident that Nadal will win because it has been his niche for the previous years.
