PARIS — Unseeded Barbora Krejcikova has reached her first Grand Slam singles semifinal by stopping the run of 17-year-old Delray Beach resident Coco Gauff at the French Open.
Krejcikova faced five set points in the opener but managed to get past those along the way to a 7-6 (6), 6-3 victory at Court Philippe Chatrier.
Krejcikova is a 25-year-old from the Czech Republic who has won two Grand Slam doubles titles. She will face defending champion Iga Swiatek or Maria Sakkari next.
Gauff was the youngest French Open women's quarterfinalist in 15 years. She made 41 unforced errors that included seven double-faults.
