Coco Gauff joins Swiatek in the final
American Coco Gauff easily qualified for the Roland-Garros final at the expense of Martina Trevisan (6-3, 6-1). She will meet world number one Iga Swiatek in the final on Saturday.
Coco Gauff wins the first set against Trevisan
Coco Gauff did not tremble to remove the first set of this semi-final against the Italian Martina Trevisan (6-3). If the 18-year-old American confirms her good start to the match, she should join Iga Swiatek, who fell for Daria Kasatkina, in the final this Saturday.
Swiatek sends the second set and goes to the final
Even faster than in the first set, Iga Swiatek completed the first semi-final in just 1h06. In the second set, the world number one left Kasatkina only one game and completed the set in 30 minutes. Roland-Garros finalist in 2021 and winner in 2020, the 21-year-old Polish woman will face Martina Trevisan or Coco Gauff in the final, who will face each other in a few minutes on the Philippe-Chatrier court.
Iga Swiatek starts his half off strong
The Polish Iga Swiatek easily won the first set of her semi-final against Daria Kasatkina (6-2). The world number one folded the first set in 36 minutes.

Nadal’s package at Wimbledon almost confirmed according to the Spanish press
According to the Spanish media Cuatro, Rafael Nadal should take a long break after Roland-Garros. His serious foot problem is making him suffer terribly and it seems that his withdrawal for the next edition of Wimbledon (which starts on June 27) is almost certain. When is a return? Everyone ignores him. Can he play again? It is also not safe, according to the Spanish media. Marca announces for his part that in case of victory in this edition of Roland-Garros, his season will be over (which would therefore make him miss the US Open as well).
The journey of the men’s semi-finalists
It will be tomorrow but a little reminder of the journey of Marin Cilic, Casper Ruud, Rafael Nadal and Alexander Zverev, who form the last four of the men’s tournament.
End of nights for 2022
The start of the semi-finals also marks the end of evening matches for this 2022 edition of the Roland-Garros tournament. Good news for spectators who will not have to pay crazy sums to return home by taxi because of the duels ending at the end of the night.

The schedule for the women’s draw semi-finals
The women open the ball for the semi-finals this Thursday. From 3 p.m., Iga Swiatek will face the Russian Daria Kasatkina. If the Pole is the big favorite of this duel and will aim for a 34th consecutive victory this year, the world number one will have to be wary of a rival who will discover the last four in a Grand Slam.
After this first poster, the very promising Cori Gauff (18) will play her place in the final against the Italian surprise Martina Trevisan.
The fortnight of competition will end at Roland-Garros. But before the men’s final, scheduled for Sunday, the show will continue this Thursday with the start of the semi-finals.
On the program in particular the two matches of the women’s table or even several posters in double. For those who missed the latest news on the Roland-Garros tournament, a catch-up session is available.
