Karolina Pliskova will have the opportunity to retain her title on Monday. The Czech, 4th in the world, beat Sunday in straight sets (6-2, 6-4) her compatriot Marketa Vondrousova, a finalist at Roland Garros last year. To hope to win her 17th career trophy, Pliskova will have to defeat Simona Halep, world number 2, in search of her first Roman coronation after two finals lost in 2017 and 2018.

Earlier in the day, the Romanian had to work in the semi-final against the Spanish Garbine Muguruza, seeded N.9, to win in three sets (6-3, 4-6, 6-4 ). By dominating this semi-final between two ex-queens of Roland-Garros, facing a very catchy Spanish opponent despite signs of fatigue and back pain, Halep signed his 13th consecutive victory. This series began before the interruption of competitions due to coronavirus with a title in Dubai in February and continued in the resumption with his title in Prague in August and his four successes in Rome this week.

Muguruza, who was the last player to beat her in January in the Australian Open semifinals, was unable to reoffend. Broken and led in the 2nd and 3rd sets, the Spaniard has each time managed to return to the match, putting pressure on the Romanian until the end. Insufficient.
