Paris: Sofia Kenin and Iga Swiatek are the last women standing at a French Open tournament unlike any other, full of surprises and held in the autumnal Paris chill after it was delayed four months by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Australian Open champion Kenin is targeting a second Grand Slam of the year while the 19-year-old Swiatek has her sights set on becoming Poland’s first major singles champion.
On Thursday, fourth seed Kenin defeated two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova 6-4, 7-5 to reach the French Open final while teenager Iga Swiatek became the first Polish woman in 81 years to reach the French Open final as she demolished Argentine qualifier Nadia Podoroska 6-2, 6-1.
