French Open 2021: Krejcikova knocks Sakkari out to reach final

The 2021 French Open is gradually coming to an end as Barbora Krejcikova beat her opponent Maria Sakkari in an entertaining semi-final to reach final.

The entertaining match lasted for three hours will be the first of it kind since 1978 that a singles tournament has had four debutants in the Grand Slam.

The 25 year old Krejcikova won 7-5, 4-6, 9-7 to reach her first final in her career. Though, she had a line call wrongly overruled by the umpire, yet she came out victorious.

Barbora Krejcikova will now face Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the final later on Saturday.

Apart from the final coming up, Krejcikova will play in the semi-finals of the women's doubles alongside fellow Czech Katerina Siniakova on Friday also.

In her interview, the two-time Grand Slam doubles champion pays emotional tribute to Novotna.

"I appreciate all my heroes and I thank Jana from upstairs," said Krejcikova.

"She looked after me and I really miss her and I want to thank her. Because of her I'm here and it is really important to say it out loud."


Congratulations to Barbora Krejcikova
