Pavlyuchenko in the final

Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova defeated Tamara Zidanšeková from Slovenia in the semifinals 7: 5, 6: 3 and is in the grand slam final for the first time. In the battle for the title, she will compete on Saturday’s clay against Barbora Krejčíková, who defeated Maria Sakkari of Greece in a battle lasting more than three hours on the central court of Philipp Chatrier.

Twenty-nine-year-old Pavlyuchenko did not reach the finals until her 52nd grand slam career. In the case of the title, she would follow her three compatriots at the French Open – Maria Sharapova (2012, 2014), Svetlana Kuznetsova (2009) and Anastasia Myskinova (2004).

In the match with Zidanšeková, Pavljučenkovová lost 0: 2, but thanks to her more active play and good return, she turned to 5: 3. In the first set, she made a double mistake and equalized her opponent to 5: 5, but Russia still started playing the more nervous opponent again and won four games in a row.

In the second set, the native of Samara led 4: 1 and Zidanšeková tried to breathe a turn. She reduced to 4: 3, but mistakes prevailed in her game and she couldn’t do more. Even thanks to 27 winning strokes, the 31st deployed Pavlyuchenko advanced to the finals after an hour and a half long match.

“I’ve always wanted this so badly and now I don’t feel anything,” Pavlyuchenko said in an interview on the court. “Tennis is about the head. It’s really very difficult on it,” she added.

Martincová advanced to the quarterfinals in Nottingham

Tereza Martincová advanced to the quarterfinals on the grass in Nottingham. In the 3rd round, she defeated the Spaniard Georgina García 6: 1, 3: 6, 6: 2 and will compete with Nina Stojanovičová to advance to the top four. The Serb eliminated the third deployed Donna Vekičová from Croatia.

Twenty-six-year-old Martincová, who ranks 94th in the world rankings, was able to rely on a solid serve today and defeated her opponent in an hour and 40 minutes. She advanced to the quarterfinals for the first time in the season and at the same time for the first time in her career on the grass surface.
