After dethroning Maria Sharapova, Safarova continued to sow sadness for other seeded players, defeating Ana Ivanovic in the first semi-final in the women’s singles.

In the second set, it was Safarova’s turn to squander opportunities.

This result puts an end to the impressive comeback journey of former world number one Ivanovic at the clay Grand Slam since 2008. Meanwhile, 36 winners, of which 18 points came from shots.

Ivanovic (black shirt) had to stop playing when he encountered the Safarova phenomenon.

`I started the match quite slowly and didn’t achieve what I wanted, especially with my legs. Ana played well at the beginning of the match, but I gradually regained my rhythm, then proactively controlled the match.`

The 28-year-old Czech tennis player’s opponent in the final match of the season is number one seed Serena Williams.

Against Timea Bacsinszky, like Safarova, Serena entered the game passively while her opponent proved to be much more effective.

But that was all the Swiss female tennis player could do, because after that, Serena Williams won all 10 consecutive games in the remainder of the second set and the entire third set, not allowing her opponent to lose.

`I’m sorry, I couldn’t do anything to impress in this match. I’ve been feeling unwell for a few days now, and after the difficult match against Timea, I need to see a doctor for treatment. I’m on my own.`
