Barty outplayed me, concedes Anisimova

Simona Halep was knocked out of the French Open 6-2 6-4 by 17-year-old American Amanda Anisimova

For that matter, imagine if the bottom half didn't have any upsets and gave us No. 2 seed Karolina Pliskova vs.

She idolises Maria Sharapova,
she looks a bit like Sharapova
and if Amanda Anisimova continues to play the way she has been over the past 12 days, she could become the youngest victor of a grand slam title since Sharapova at Wimbledon in 2004.

The young American, who had knocked out defending champion Simona Halep in the quarter-finals, then moved into a 3-0 lead in the second set only to lose six games in a row. She was the youngest American woman into the final four at Roland Garros since Jennifer Capriati was 14 in 1990.

"I was just trying to do the same thing I was doing, but she just stayed consistent and it was just really tough". I felt really good (Thursday), like healthy, because early in the rounds I didn't really feel good.

"I feel like when I'm able to play my game style and my kind of tennis, I can match it with everyone regardless what surface it's on".

"I just played the best tennis of my life".

Barty's success on clay, a surface she's probably least familiar with but has always shown potential on, is something she's embracing.

"That was awesome, both good and bad", said Barty, who will rise to the top three in the rankings next week. Amanda began playing tennis at two years old.

In only 68 minutes, Anisimova played aggressive tennis and in the process became the youngest French Open semi-finalist since 17 year-old Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic reached the semifinals of the 2006 French Open before losing to Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russian Federation. It's the first time the top four men's seeds are the last four standing at a major tournament since the 2013 Australian Open.

Woodbridge believes Barty's skill set is equal to that of the greats of the game.

"Controlling the points was the key, I think", said 2018 French Open runner-up Thiem, who made only 12 unforced errors, 25 fewer than Khachanov.

She's already a true champion, and this week we need one.

Nadal is 11-0 in Roland Garros finals, but he doesn't have an opponent yet.

It is the first time two teenagers have reached the girls folks's semi-finals at a Huge Slam for 10 years. Perhaps, because there is no longer a marquee name like Serena Williams to garner attention, there is a backlash as the Paris fortnight winds down.

Just like in the first semi-final between Johanna Konta and Marketa Vondrousova, both players fought for the first Grand Slam final and it was the more experienced Aussie who outplayed a teenage sensation in sets two and three to cross the finish line first, only after wasting a massive advantage in the opening set. Whatever court they put me on to play in, I'm going to be happy. "They are all lovely courts".
