The underdog, on newspaper, coming to the match is Barbora Krejcikova. The Czech Republic-native entered the French Open as the 33rd-ranked participant on Earth. However, she battled her way through a few hard matches, including big wins over Americans Sloane Stephens and Coco Gauff. She really started to cause a stir when she knocked off Elina Svitolina, the no. 5-ranked participant in the world, at the next round. Krejcikova are also tasked with another closing on Saturday, as she and Katerina Siniakova have made it at the women's doubles final.
This is absolutely the furthest Pavlyuchenkova has made it any significant, losing in the quarterfinals six times, and has been eliminated from the year's Australian Open in the first round too.
