Sofia Kenin won an all-American French Open quarterfinal, setting up a semifinal clash between the only women left who own major titles.
Kenin, the fourth seed and Australian Open champion, dispatched 57th-ranked Danielle Collins 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 on Wednesday to reach the final four.
She plays seventh-seeded Czech Petra Kvitova in Thursday’s semifinals. Earlier Tuesday, Kvitova swept 66th-ranked German Laura Siegemund 6-3, 6-3 to reach her first French Open semifinal in eight years.
Kvitova is 2-0 against Kenin, but both matches came before the 21-year-old American broke through in Melbourne last winter.
