  • Simona Halep made her Roland-Garros intentions clear after sweeping aside Poland’s Iga Swiatek in straight sets, dropping just one game.
  • The 27-year-old had a mixed clay-court season before reaching the quarter-finals stage here with a finals loss in Madrid contrasted by her early exit in Rome.
  • The defending champion is in pole position to reclaim her only Grand Slam title to date, with the last player to beat her Marketa Vondrousova facing an in-form Johanna Konta on the other side of the draw.


  • American teenager Amanda Anisimova is the youngest player to reach a French Open quarter-final in 13 years after her dismissal of Aliona Bolsova.
  • The 17-year-old finds herself in her first Grand Slam quarter-finals after a first-round exit last year as her star continues to rise.
  • Anisimova won her first WTA title earlier this year in Colombia and will walk out to Court Philippe-Chatrier with nothing to fear against Halep.


Both of these players have had strong routes to the final eight, with Amanda Anisimova especially impressive in her efforts, having not dropped a set in four matches. Reigning champion Simona Halep will see this year’s Roland-Garros as a massive opportunity with Serena Williams again out of the picture and last year’s finalist Sloane Stephens also missing. This should be fascinating, with the American teenager able to take a set, perhaps even the first, but Halep has to be favoured to edge closer to another Roland Garros final and win here.
