Iga Swiatek has advanced to her maiden Grand Slam final at Roland-Garros, bringing an end to Argentinian qualifier Nadia Podoroska’s magical three weeks in Paris.
The 19-year-old becomes the seventh unseeded finalist in the French capital in the Open Era following her 6-2, 6-1 victory after 69 minutes.
Swiatek is the first Polish woman in the Roland-Garros final in 81 years and the first at any major since Agnieszka Radwanska at Wimbledon 2012.
Yet to drop a set all tournament, including a victory over top seed Simona Halep in the fourth round, Swiatek awaits either fourth seed Sofia Kenin or seventh seed Petra Kvitova in the final.
World No.131 Podoroska, who started the year ranked No.255, was bidding to become the first qualifier to reach a major final but was unable to back up her upset of No.5 seed Elina Svitolina.
In the finals Swiatek will face winner of 4th seed Sofia Kenin of USA and 7th seed Petra Kvitova.
The 19-year-old earlier defeated World No.1 Simona Halep and has now become the first Polish women ever to enter any Grand Slam finals.
