Maria Sharapova had a three-set victory over Victoria Azarenka, sending her into the French Open finals on Saturday.
In the match, Sharapova will face Serena Williams, who knocked out Sara Errani, last year's runner-up.
Sharapova is the defending French Open champion and won despite 11 double-faults, winning the first set 6-1, losing the second 2-6 and closing the match 6-4.
The match will be Williams' first French Open championship berth since 2002. She comes in on a roll, having shut down Errani in two sets -- 6-0 and 6-1 -- in just 46 minutes. Her record against Sharapova is 13-2.
Williams is a 15-time Grand Slam champion, and the semifinal was her 30th-straight match victory.
Williams is the easy favorite -- so easy, in fact, that reporters asked Sharapova about her shortcomings against Williams after winning her semifinal match.
“You know, of course I have lost to her numerous amounts of times,” Sharapova said. “When I go out there, I obviously -- whatever I have done, like I said in the past, has not worked. You try to go out there and do something different because whatever you have done just hasn’t performed well. I hope that I can.”
Either way, it will be a loud match -- the two are known as the most dramatic grunters on the court.
