TENNIS: Sharapova moves into French Open final
Maria Sharapova moved within one win of retaining her French Open title with a battling performance against Victoria Azarenka in the semi-finals today.
The Russian second seed coped with a rash of double faults to win 6-1, 2-6, 6-4, and set up a final against Serena Williams or Sara Errani on Saturday.
The men’s semi-finals will take place tomorrow.
The semi-final match-ups are Rafael Nadal against Novak Djokovic and J-Wilfried Tsonga against David Ferrer.
