French Open: Gauff makes her first semifinal appearance

American tennis sensation, Coco Gauff has reached the semifinal of the ongoing French Open after defeating fellow American Sloane Stephens in straight sets. The 18-year old zoomed into the last four at the Rolland Garros after a tight first set, before taking charge of the second to defeat 29-year old Stephens by 7-5 6-2. Gauff, who won the French Open junior title in 2018 - the same year Stephens finished runner-up to Simona Halep in the women's singles final, will be making her first ever semifinal appearance at a Grand Slam. In another development, Trevisan, 28, also reached the last four at Roland Garros for a first time after overcoming Leylah Fernandez 6-2 6-7 (3-7) 6-3. The world number 59 who won her first WTA title in Rabat the week before the French Open, having previously taken four years out of the game and talked openly about her battles with an eating disorder in 2020 will now face Coco Gauff on Friday in the second semifinal clash.
