  • 0

PARIS (AP) — Tour veteran Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia has advanced to her first Grand Slam final by beating unseeded Tamara Zidansek at the French Open. The score was 7-5, 6-3. The 29-year-old Pavlyuchenkova, seeded 31st, is playing in her 52nd major tournament and her 14th French Open. She had been 0-6 in major quarterfinals before finally surmounting that hurdle Tuesday and was steadier than the big-swinging Zidansek in their semifinal. Pavlyuchenkova will play Saturday against the winner of Thursday’s second match which is between No. 17-seeded Maria Sakkari of Greece and unseeded Barbora Krejcikova of the Czech Republic.
