Jelena Ostapenko To Play At Roland Garros Final

Jelena Ostapenko will play in this year final of Roland Garros after blasting her way past Timea Bacsinszky and she would face Simona Halep who defeated Karolina Pliskova at the French Open on Thursday.

Ostapenko celebrated her 20th birthday by crushing Bacsinszky's hopes with a nerve-jangling 7-6 (7-4) 3-6 6-3 victory, which included a total of 16 breaks of serve on a sweltering Court Philippe-Chatrier. Her impressive tally of 50 winners, including a bludgeoning forehand on her second match point, helped her become the youngest finalist at any major since Caroline Wozniacki in New York eight years ago.

She said “I am really happy. I love to play here, I love you guys, you're amazing. I'm just happy with the way I celebrated my birthday! I was always playing aggressive and hitting the ball when I have a chance. It probably helps me to win today.”
