- Unseeded Czech wins 7-6, 6-7, 7-5 to reach first grand slam final
- Swiatek defeats Haddad Maia 6-2, 7-6 in second semi-final
Iga Swiatek will attempt to win her third French Open title in four years when the Pole faces Karolina Muchova of the Czech Republic in Saturday’s final. On Thursday, a dramatic women’s semi-final day at Roland Garros ended with the unseeded Muchova upsetting Aryna Sabalenka, the second seed, scuppering hopes of a rematch between the top two players.
In the first women’s semi-final, Muchova recovered from a 2-5, 30-40 deficit on her serve, winning the final five games of a spectacular battle to reach her first grand slam final with a 7-6 (5), 6-7 (5), 7-5 win over Sabalenka.
