    French Open 2021: Anastasia of Russia reaches Grand Slam final for the first time

    New Delhi. Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova reached the French Open women’s singles final. Anastasia defeated world number 85 Tamara Zidancek of Slovenia 7-5, 6-3. He reached the Grand Slam title for the first time in his record 52nd attempt.

    The 29-year-old Russian will be fighting for the title 14 years after his Grand Slam debut. She will face either 17th seed Maria Sakkari of Greece or unseeded Barbora Krejcikova of the Czech Republic in the French Open final on Saturday.

    On Court Philippe Chatrier, both players struggled with their serves but Anastasia held on and won the crucial points. Zidanecek, who has never advanced beyond the second round of a Grand Slam before, hit some great drop shots and forehand winners but also made 33 unforced errors.

    Anastasia reached the quarter-finals in Paris almost a decade ago. He is also the first player to play in more than 50 majors before reaching his first final. She broke the previous record of 44 held by 2015 US Open runner-up Roberta Vinci.

    “I needed it so much that I don’t feel anything now,” said the Russian player after the win. Tennis is such a mental game. The four women who made it to the semi-finals this time have never reached the last four of a Grand Slam before.
