French Begin 2019: Simona Halep loses to unseeded teen Amanda Anisimova

Anisimova offers thrilling glimpse of the future

Anisimova - the first player born in the 2000s to reach the semi-finals or quarter-finals at a grand slam - continued to show great fight to save five match points but Barty sealed the win on her sixth despite light rain.

The eighth-seeded Barty outlasted Anisimova in a rollercoaster 6-7 (4) 6-3 6-3 victory on Friday night (AEST) and will take on Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova on Saturday night (LIVE, FREE and in HD on SBS and streamed live via SBS Sport / SBS On Demand). I feel like I've played some really good tennis, some consistent tennis.

Barty takes on 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova in the semi finals on Friday night after she pulled off a stunning upset against current world number three Simona Halep.

Anisimova started to spray more errors and Ashleigh was ready to punish every single one of those, breaking in games five, seven and nine to seize the control and become the favorite ahead of the decider.

"It's fantastic", she said.

"When she's in good form, good touch, she has more skill than any other player I think now on the tour".


"I just played the best tennis of my life". Although that level wasn't there today for the whole match necessarily, it was there when I needed it.

"Well", said Halep, who was seeded third, "nothing surprises me anymore in tennis".

Much to the disappointment of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), the women's matches have been bumped to the other two show courts in the Roland Garros complex. On the other hand, the Aussie created 20 break points, seizing eight of those and overcoming a awful first set outcome to book the place in the final after scoring only two wins in Paris before this year.

"Things have opened up for her and she's playing with such confidence". Here is everything you need to know about her as she looks to make history in Paris.

The two men's semifinals - Rafael Nadal vs. Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic vs. Dominic Thiem - were to be played back-to-back at Chatrier.

The tournament director's office announced that the Ashleigh Barty versus Amanda Anisimova semifinal would begin at 11 a.m. and be played on Court Suzanne Lenglen. "And even if she doesn't hit strong like with a lot of power, she hits it very long, very deep, with good depth, and it's tough to return the balls".
