Kenin sees off Collins to set up Kvitova semi-final showdown at French Open
Fourth seed Sofia Kenin moved into her first semi-final at the French Open on Wednesday after beating her fellow American Danielle Collins 6-4, 4-6, 6-0
The 22-year-old held on to her advantage to pocket the set 6-4 after 46 minutes
It was a case of deja vu in the second. But this time Collins broke straight back for 3-3.
And she went on to level the match when Kenin pushed a forehand long.
But that was as good as it got for the 26-year-old. Collins collapsed in the decider as Kenin powered her way into the semi-finals after just over two hours.
The 29-year-old Czech has won both of their encounters, one on the hard courts at the Miami Masters in 2018 and the second last year on clay at the Madrid Masters.
