History will be made at the French Open women’s final as both finalists have never won a Grand Slam title before.
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova has previously reached the quarter-final stage of each Grand Slam tournament and Barbora Krejcikova made it to the second round of the Australian Open in 2020 and 2021 but neither has lifted a trophy.
Both of their semi-finals were hard fought battles.
Pavlyuchenkova defeated Tamara Zidanšek in straight sets but the first set was brought down to the wire as she won 7-5, 6-3.
While Krejcikova beat Maria Sakkari over three sets after the Greek star fought back in the second and third set. Krejcikova won the first set 7-5, Sakkari took the second 6-4 and the third was claimed by the Czech player 9-7.

Pavlyuchenkova - 21/20
