Amanda Anisimova stuns Simona Halep to reach French Open semi-finals

Amanda Anisimova: Five Things To Know About American Tennis Sensation

Tennis sensation Ash Barty moving through to the French Open semi-final is the good news Australia needs.

By advancing to the semifinals of the French Open, she became the first player born in the 2000s to reach a Grand Slam semifinal. This is Barty's first ever grand slam singles semifinal appearance.

Ashleigh Barty missed her second chance to serve out the set at 5-3 but it was the teenager who again broke her serve and came back into the match.

Barty used her strength and took advantage of the slow and windy conditions to break Anisimova's serve twice and earned six consecutive points to win the set 6-3.

"I feel like when I'm able to play my game style and my kind of tennis, I can match it with everyone regardless what surface it's on".

Australian Ashleigh Barty ended 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova's incredible run at tennis' French Open to reach the final with a roller-coaster 6-7 (4-7), 6-3, 6-3 victory on Friday (June 7).

Woodbridge believes Barty's skill set is equal to that of the greats of the game.

"It's opened up in a seeding regard", she said.

"I think they have played an incredible tournament obviously to be in this position, and they're enjoying it".

"I just played the best tennis of my life".

"I have played players similar to her that like to slice a lot". Ashleigh was the only player on the court in the first five games, dropping only three points and forging a 5-0 advantage with a backhand victor after only 12 minutes!

"Even though that level wasn't there for the whole match today, it was there when I needed it".

If she can win, she will be the first Australian champion at the French Open since Margaret Court in 1973.

Defeat will be tough to take for Anisimova, the 17-year-old looking to become the youngest finalist at a grand slam event since her childhood idol Maria Sharapova won Wimbledon in 2004 and the youngest in Paris since Martina Hingis in 1997.

In a quarterfinal clash postponed on Wednesday because of heavy rain, Barty produced an intelligent display full of guile in the Court Suzanne Lenglen sunshine.

"We are, however, extremely disappointed by the scheduling of both women's semifinals on outside courts".

However, when she was asked about playing on one court or the other, Anisimova said "it doesn't really matter" to her. "They're all attractive courts".
