THE PLAYERS

ASHLEIGH BARTY

  • Australia’s Ashleigh Barty will face her fifth American opponent at this year’s Roland-Garros when she plays the tournament’s surprise package Amanda Anisimova in the semi-finals.
  • As the eighth seed, Barty has dropped just the one set in her five matches so far and put out 14th seed Madison Keys on Thursday due to poor weather causing a washout on Wednesday.
  • Barty had not progressed past the second round of Roland-Garros before this year’s edition and has now bettered her quarter-final appearance at this year's Australian Open as her best at a Grand Slam.

AMANDA ANISIMOVA

  • Amanda Anisimova can no longer be trivialised after her total destruction of the reigning champion Simona Halep in the quarter-finals on Thursday morning.
  • The 17-year-old has not dropped a set in her journey to the semi-finals at Roland-Garros and her style of play is as powerful as it is full of decisive placement beyond her years.
  • The American’s star is rising at an alarming pace as she becomes the first player born this millennium to reach the semi-finals of a Grand Slam.

THE PREDICTION

Nobody would have predicted that 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova would reach the semi-final stage of Roland-Garros but she has proved doubters wrong with a game that looks so assured for such a young player. Simona Halep really stood no chance, as she was beaten down either flank time and again. Ashleigh Barty should be worried, as what looked like a 50/50 slog with Halep has now become the unknown with Anisimova who improves with every game. This teenager looks to be a future Grand Slam winner.
