ANDREEVA STUNS SABALENKA TO REACH ROLAND GARROS SEMIFINALS

Unseeded Andreeva stunned Sabalenka by pulling off a 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-4 victory in only her sixth major tournament.

The 17-year-old teener thus became the youngest Grand Slam semifinalist in more than a quarter century.

“I always play the way I want to play. We have a plan with my coach for the match,” Andreeva said.

“But after I forget everything, and when I play a match, I don’t have any thoughts in my head,” she added.

Furthermore, the Cannes-based Andreeva is coached by 1994 Wimbledon champion Conchita Martinez.

ZVEREV REACHES SEMIS FOR FOURTH TIME AFTER OUSTING DE MINAUR

No.4 seed Zverev reached the semifinals for a fourth straight time after ousting Alex de Minaur, 6-4, 7-6(5), 6-4.

The 27-year-old German raised his current winning streak to 11 matches after beating No.11 seed de Minaur at Court Philippe Chatrier Wednesday night.

Zverev was confident of playing at Roland Garros despite a pending court case stemming from physical abuse accusations by his ex-girlfriend.

“I think everything is going accordingly. No, they made it very clear from the beginning that I don’t have to be here,” the German said.

“Everything is going OK from my side and from my point of view. There’s nothing else to say,” he added.

Zverev is scheduled to face two-time French Open runner-up Casper Ruud in the semifinals on Friday.

NO TIMETABLE FOR DJOKOVIC’S RETURN AFTER UNDERGOING SURGERY

There would be no timetable for Novak Djokovic’s return to the court after saying that his right knee surgery “went well.”

The world No.1 is not putting a timeframe for his return.

He addressed the meniscus on his right knee that he sustained in his fourth-round match in Paris.

Djokovic was forced to withdraw in his quarterfinal match against Ruud, thus kissing his title hopes goodbye.

“I’m going to do my best to be healthy and fit to return to the court as soon as possible,” the Serbian said.

“My love for this sport is strong and the desire to compete at the highest level is what keeps me going,” he added.

Djokovic remains doubtful to play at Wimbledon but remains hopeful he can compete in the Paris Games next month.
