Published Add your comment

Garbine Muguruza reached her second grand slam final with a 6-2 6-4 victory over Sam Stosur at the French Open.

The fourth seed was runner-up to Serena Williams at Wimbledon last year and may well get the chance for revenge in the final at Roland Garros.

Since losing her first set of the tournament to Anna Karolina Schmiedlova, Muguruza has barely put a foot wrong and overpowered 2010 finalist Stosur.

Muguruza looked like she might wobble when she was pegged back from 5-2 to 5-4 in the second set but two aces took her to match point and the Spaniard clinched victory when Stosur netted a forehand.

Muguruza said: "Obviously it was a difficult moment and I really wanted to win so it was a combination of her playing very well and me being a little bit nervous."

Asked how she would prepare for the final, the Spaniard added: "Emotions are sometimes bad, you have to be calm, prepare yourself as much as you can and just play without regrets."
