Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (WTA 32) will play the final at Roland Garros on Saturday. The 29-year-old Russian, who will face the Greek Maria Sakkari (18) or the Czech Barbora Krejcikova (33), took the measure of the Slovenian Tamara Zidansek (85) 7-5 6-3.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, who is fluent in French, has never been so close to the Grail as she lines up for the 52nd time already in a Grand Slam tournament.
Advised for a time by Martina Hingis, the Russian found the necessary relaxation in the “money time” to confirm her success in the previous rounds ahead of Aryna Sabalenka, Victoria Azarenka and Elena Rybakina. She was able to fully exploit the lack of sharpness in the service of the Slovenian to win after 1h34 ‘of play.
