This will be the first time since 1978 that a Grand Slam women's singles tournament has had four semi-final debutants and it is also the first time these two players will be competing in a Grand Slam semi-final.
Pavlyuchenkova who won on 7-5, 6-3 today on the Paris clay had never reached a Grand Slam semi-final in her career.
Though the 29 years old has reached the Grand Slam quarter-finals six times in her career - including at Roland Garros in 2011.
On the other hand, Zidansek who is ranked 85th in the world had never been beyond the second round at a major nor has she ever won a WTA title.
Pavlyuchenkova will then face Maria Sakkari or Barbora Krejcikova in the final later on Saturday.
Congratulations to Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
