Battling Barty holds off Anisimova to reach French Open final

Anisimova offers thrilling glimpse of the future

Vondrousova has not dropped a set in the tournament and can become the first teenager to win the French Open since Iva Majoli in 1997.

Seventeen-year-old Amanda Anisimova took the headlines with a stunning upset of defending champion Simona Halep to reach the semi-finals.

Perhaps sensing she was on the verge of a life-changing breakthrough, Anisimova went AWOL once again.

Barty took full advantage of Anisimova's early jitters on a chilly, windswept Court Suzanne Lenglen, allowing her opponent only one of the first 18 points. She didn't miss this chance and made a remarkable comeback after being 5-0 down to conquer the first set 7-6.

It was a stunning turnaround with Anisimova pinching the set. The American smashed back a return, but hit the net, losing the match 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-3.

Eighth seed Ashleigh Barty secured her place in the French Open final on Friday despite a display she acknowledged was wildly inconsistent.

The world number 51 rattled off five consecutive games to draw level and another sloppy forehand from Barty gave Anisimova the chance to serve for the set. Now, she's strung together five nice wins.

In a good sign for the Aussie, the pair have met twice before with Barty winning both matches.

In addition to the aforementioned charges, Winslow was cited for exposing himself to two different women over the past year. The judge told jurors being under oath means telling the whole truth and that they should follow the law how it is written.

"I have been playing very well", she said. "It's just been an fantastic journey that I've been on". "I am proud of the way I fought to win that match, the conditions were incredibly tough".

The last teenager to reach the final at Roland Garros was Ana Ivanovic, who was also 19 when she finished runner-up to Justine Henin in 2007.

"That was incredible, both good and bad", said Barty, who will rise to the top three in the rankings next week.

"I think for me it's an opportunity to go out there and try bring it back to my style of tennis as much as possible and know at times it's not going to be in my control", Ms Barty said. "At the end of the day, it's an wonderful opportunity".

"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. All things considered, I was really happy with the way I responded at a set and 3-0 (down)". Photo from Ash Barty's Facebook page.

It looks like there is a rising American superstar in women's tennis.

Social media exploded after the result with Barty on the verge of history.

She's already a true champion, and this week we need one.
