  1. - - KERBER 3-6 6-7 - ERRANI WINS THROUGH! What a victory for the Italian, who takes the tie-break in convincing fashion to win in straight sets to defy Kerber! Errani is through to the semi-finals at Roland Garros, against all the odds, and she will next face sixth seed Sam Stosur in the last four. Drawsheet

  2. - - KERBER 3-6 6-6 (2-4) - Errani makes the early running in this breaker as she twice slams forehand winners from poor Kerber serves, and the Italian is giving it everything.

  3. - - KERBER 3-6 6-6 - BREAK! Kerber again squanders the opportunity to take the second set on serve, and Errani shows tremendous guts and determination to take it to a tie-break after breaking in an extended and tense deuce!

  4. - - KERBER 3-6 6-5 - BREAK! Errani is furious with herself as she lets her serve be broken yet again, and she cannot find any rhythm or conviction on her first delivery.

  9. - - KERBER 3-6 3-3 - Kerber levels the second set up at 3-3 with two crushing forehand winners, and the German is really beginning to hit her straps now!

  10. - - KERBER 3-6 2-3 - The momentum is now with Errani as she follows up her break back with a solid hold in very composed fashion. Can she now break again?

  11. - - KERBER 3-6 2-2 - BREAK! Errani breaks straight back as the Italian refuses to be dictated to in this second set, and Kerber will have to really respond now after seeing her serve savaged.

  12. - - KERBER 3-6 2-1 - BREAK! Kerber seizes the initiative at the start of this second set with a flurry of powerful groundstrokes, and she is in control now - can Errani respond?

  13. - - KERBER 3-6 1-1 - Kerber levels at 1-1 as the German continues to battle exceptionally hard, and she is beginning to look more confident on serve.

  14. - - KERBER 3-6 0-1 - Errani holds to establish herself at the start of this second set, and the Italian is really battling hard as she comes under real pressure.

  15. - - KERBER 3-6 - SET! Errani is looking incredibly confident as she breaks serve to take the opening set in very convincing fashion! Kerber again falters on serve, and she's slipping further behind.

  16. - - KERBER 3-5 - Errani again holds in gutsy fashion under a great deal of pressure from her opponent, and she clenches her fist in delight as she closes it out!

  17. - - KERBER 3-4 - Kerber is refusing to be dictated to in this opening set despite falling behind early on, and the German slams an emphatic forehand winner down the line to hold.
