History will be made at the French Open women’s final as both finalists have never won a Grand Slam title before.

Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova has previously reached the quarter-final stage of each Grand Slam tournament and Barbora Krejcikova made it to the second round of the Australian Open in 2020 and 2021 but neither has lifted a trophy.

Both of their semi-finals were hard fought battles.

Pavlyuchenkova defeated Tamara Zidanšek in straight sets but the first set was brought down to the wire as she won 7-5, 6-3.

While Krejcikova beat Maria Sakkari over three sets after the Greek star fought back in the second and third set. Krejcikova won the first set 7-5, Sakkari took the second 6-4 and the third was claimed by the Czech player 9-7.

Here is all you need to know about the match

What time is the match?

Where can I watch?

Odds

Pavlyuchenkova - 21/20

Krejcikova -5/6

Prediction

The final will be a close match with both players being in their maiden Grand Slam final. While Pavlyuchenkova reached the final in straight sets, Krejcikova’s dispatching of Coco Gauff in the quarter-finals was impressive and so she could snatch the win. Krejcikova to win 6-3, 2-6, 6-3.
