By: J.S.,STA

Slovenia’s Tamara Zidanšek advanced to the semi-finals of the French Open, defeating Paula Badosa of Spain in the quarter-finals in three sets (7:5, 4:6 and 8:6), to get Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia in the semi-finals on Thursday.

Prior to the win, Zidanšek became the first Slovenian female tennis player to advance to the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam tournament in a singles competition since 1977, when Mima Jaušovec won it all on the Paris clay. The 23-year old, who prior to the tournament placed 85th on the WTA rankings, is expected to crack the top 50 with the career feat.
