Barbora Krejčíková advances into Roland Garros semi-final

Barbora Krejčíková has reached the semi-finals of Roland Garros clay Grand Slam for the first time in her career after beating 17-year-old American Cori Gauff. The first set of the game was tightly contested, with Gauff holding altogether five set points. However, the Czech tennis player managed to hold out, eventually winning the first set 7:6 and going on to win the second set 6:3.

Krejčíková will face the winner of the quarter final game between Poland’s Iga Świątek and Greece’s Maria Sakkari. Meanwhile, Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Slovenia’s Tamara Zidanšek will face each other in the parallel semi-final game on Thursday.
