MATCH PREVIEW

Another Big Challenge for Sakkari

 

Four players remain in the women's singles at Roland Garros but not the ones we expected. Maria Sakkari takes on Barbora Krejcikova in this semi-final with the winner taking on either Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova or Tamara Zidansek. Not one of them has been in a Grand Slam semi-final before, let alone win one.

Maria Sakkari is the highest seed left in the tournament and the Greek is 17th and ranked 18th in the world. Her efforts at Roland Garros will see her rise to 17th and  win here will see her go up to 14th. That would be her highest ever ranking but all that is on her mind at the moment is winning her first ever Grand Slam.

Wednesday saw her defeat the defending champion Iga Swiatek in straight sets. Her opponent did have some injury problems but Sakkari played a great match. Before this tournament, Sakkari had never even made it to a Grand Slam quarter final and had only once got to the third round at Roland Garros.

Her tennis year has seen some real highlights. A last four in Abu Dhabi saw her beat Garbine Muguruza, Sofia Kenin and Cori Gauff. If you are going to do well in a tournament, do it at a Masters or a Grand Slam where there are ranking points aplenty. Sakkari has done that this year with a semi-final in Miami and now at Roland Garros. In the WTA Race, she's now up to seventh and a win here could see her go up to fourth, so it's looking good for a place in the Tour Finals.

Only one set has been lost on her way to the Roland Garros last four. Before beating Swiatek, the Greek has knocked out 14th seeded Elise Mertens and had another win over the fourth seed Sofia Kenin. Sometimes it's not easy to follow up a big win but Sakkari has proved this year that she's capable of doing that.

 

Not Just a Doubles Specialist

 

Barbora Krejcikova doesn't always like being called a doubles specialist. She is in the top seven in the world though and has won the women's doubles title in Paris. Not only is she in the singles semi-final but the doubles too. This year has seen her singles reputation grow and grow with a series of good performances.

Krejcikova started the year ranked 65th in the world but by the time she arrived at Roland Garros, she was 33rd. Her run to this semi-final has seen her live ranking of 23 and a top 20 place awaits her if reaching the final. To show what a year she's had, Krejcikova is sixth in the WTA Race and will be third if reaching this final.

The final of the Dubai Tennis Championships was reached and the Strasbourg tournament won. In Rome, the Czech made it to the last 16 with Sofia Kenin (not having the best of times) beaten. More top players have been beaten in this run to the last four at Roland Garros. First to be beaten was 32nd seed Ekaterina Alexandrova and then the fifth seed Elina Svitolina. After beating former French Open finalist Sloane Stephens, Coco Gauff was beaten in straight sets in the last eight.

This promises to be an intriguing semi-final. Sakkari has to forget the win over Swiatek and focus fully on this match. For Krejcikova, it's been another breakthrough tournament. She's capable of beating top ten players, so this is hard to predict. Sakkari seems to have the momentum, go for her to win but a third set may be needed.
