I was really good and pretty bad! - Barty battles through to final

Australia's Ash Barty has continued her stunning French Open form, taking down Madison Keys in straight sets to book her spot in the last four.

Barty looked on course to win the last five games of the match, as she held 0-40 on Anisimova's serve in the eighth game, but the teenager made one last stand after almost two hours of play.

She idolises Maria Sharapova,

and if Amanda Anisimova continues to play the way she has been over the past 12 days, she could become the youngest victor of a grand slam title since Sharapova at Wimbledon in 2004.

Ashleigh Barty ended 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova's run at the French Open to reach the final with a wild 6-7 (4), 6-3, 6-3 victory.

Woodbridge believes Barty's skill set is equal to that of the greats of the game.

"That was unbelievable, both good and bad", said Barty, who will rise to the top three in the rankings next week. "I was kind of frozen and I couldn't really get into my game", the American said.

"Today was certainly some of the best tennis I have played on clay in my career."
Here is everything you need to know about her as she looks to make history in Paris.

"I feel like I have played some really good tennis, some consistent tennis".

"Even though that level wasn't there for the whole match today, it was there when I needed it". Her older sister Maria played college tennis at Penn.

Romanian third seed Halep, 27, misplaced 6-2 6-4 to the unseeded 17-yr-frail.

But Barty rejected the notion that these results made things easier for her, whilst praising the strength of her competition.

The two men's semifinal matches, the first between defending champion Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, and the second involving World No. 1 Novak Djokovic against Dominic Thiem, would both go on Court Philippe Chatrier - Stade Roland Garros's largest show court - as originally scheduled, with the Nadal versus Federer match leading off play at 12:50 p.m. followed by the Djokovic-Thiem match.

Should Ms Barty triumph tonight, she will become the second Indigenous player ever to raise the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen since Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1971 and the first Australian since Margaret Court in 1973.
