World number two Aryna Sabalenka reached the semifinals of the French Open. Czech Karolina Muchova, who is ranked first in 43rd place in the world, was waiting there.

Belarusian Sabalenka was put under a lot of pressure and the first set went to Muchova, with the numbers 7-6. In the second set, the Czech continued to impress with a fine game, but in the end the world number two broke away and won the set 7–6.

In the third set, Sabalenka looked set to break down the 43rd-ranked Czech and led 5–2. Then the turnaround began.

First Grand Slam final

Sabalenka served for the match in the score of 5–3, but Muchova broke serve and then went up to 5–5 after a convincing play.

Sabalenka then changed the racket, after the Czech took the first ball. It didn't help much, and the Czech then served for the match in the score of 6-5, after a strong turnaround.

Muchova showed no respect for the world number two and won the final set, clearly. Muchova has now reached her first Grand Slam final.
