What they said
Sofia Kenin on her upcoming semi-final:
“It's not going to be an easy match-up. I feel like I'm playing…a good number of matches. I'm obviously loving the clay. I'm just going to do everything I can to take to my advantage.
“She's really tall, powerful, she has a big serve, big shots. I'm just going to have to figure out a way to balance my game out. Obviously I'm not going to overpower her… but I've got different things I can throw in to mix things up. We'll see how it's going to go, but I'm super excited to be in the semi-finals and to play her.”
Petra Kvitova on returning to the Roland-Garros semis:
“I'm really happy that after even eight years I can be in the semi-final again of a Grand Slam after last year’s final of Australia.
“I'm really glad in the last couple of years I improved my results in the Grand Slams, too. So definitely I'm proud of this, and I hope this journey, it's not ended yet.
“To be honest, right now to be in the semi-final after everything I have been through…it probably means more because I couldn't imagine (then) that I can be in the semi-final of the Grand Slam and final of the Australian Open even before. So it's another miracle happen to me.”
