In what is something of an unlikely semifinal match at the French Open, world No. 23 Cori “Coco” Gauff will face world No. 59 Martina Trevisan. Trevisan emerged from a quarter that contained Top 25 players Ons Jabeur, Maria Sakkari, Emma Raducanu, Angelique Kerber and Leylah Fernandez—in addition to former US Open champion Bianca Andreescu. Meanwhile, Gauff’s quarter included Anett Kontaveit, Victoria Azarenka, Jil Teichmann and Barbora Krejcikova. That just goes to show you the type of chaos that occurred on this side of the bracket.
Gauff is now a -300 favorite to advance to the finals, and is also the player coming into this match after having had the easier quarterfinal, a 7-5, 6-2 win over world No. 64 Sloane Stephens in only an hour and 33 minutes. On the other hand, Trevisan needed two hours and 19 minutes to pull out a 6-2, 6-7 (3), 6-3 win over Fernandez, who is the 17th-ranked player in the world. But fatigue shouldn’t be much of an issue for Trevisan, who had won in straight sets in each of her previous four matches.
