“Thank you very much, it has been a pleasure, thanks to those who followed me, even from home, and ‘merci beaucoup’ to those here. In recent years I have learned that dreaming is the most important thing.” These are the first words of an emotional Yasmine Paolini after her victory in the semi-finals of Roland Garros. “It was a tough match,” Toscan said of her opponent Andreeva: “She is 17 years old and she plays very well and is very complete. A month ago she beat me, and today I wanted to do better and it worked. However, at first I was nervous, then “I felt relaxed after the ball, and now I’m very happy with the win.” The 28-year-old Toscan – who thanks to this result will rise to No. 7 in the WTA rankings – is the fifth Italian to reach a Grand Slam final after Francesca Schiavone, Sara Errani, Flavia Pennetta and Roberta Vinci.
