Kvitova is one step away from qualifying for the title with a 10-0

Petra Kvitova, who has not lost a set so far this tournament, beat Siegemund 6-3 in 80 minutes. In the semifinals, Kenin awaits him, who beat Collins (6-4, 4-6 and 6-0).


Petra Kvitova, seventh seed at Roland Garros, qualified for the semifinals on Wednesday after beating German Laura Siegemund 6-3 in 80 minutes. The Czech is one of the two players who continue in competition without having lost a set yet. The other is the Polish Iga Swiatek. It is the second that Kvitova reaches the penultimate round of the French Grand Slam, a height she has not stepped on since 2012 and is one step away from qualifying for her first title in Paris. She will give it this Thursday against the American Sofia Kenin, who beat her Danielle Collins 6-4, 4-6 and 6-1 in 2h: 04.

Kvitova had easily beaten Siegemund in her only major match, the 2015 US Open, and it didn't take long for her to do it again against the 32nd and 66th world player who had to call a medical time-out due to shoulder discomfort left and back. The Teuton had never gotten this far in a big one and her physique accused it. Petra served well, although she was confused a couple of times to fit two breaks, and only committed 15 unforced errors in a match that was played with streaks of sunshine.

Kenin, meanwhile, had lost to Collins earlier this year in Adelaide and was playing for the first time in the quarter-finals of a clay court tournament. Her rival had been one of the most aggressive players in the tournament, with 140 winning strokes in four games and this time she stayed at 22 and received 38. Sofia is good at playing against her countrymen, she now has a favorable mark of 8- one. And she is in her second Grand Slam semifinals, after arriving last January at the Australian Open, where she finished champion.
