She will meet Russia’s Maria Sharapova today (09)at the Final game of the French Open.
Sharapova defeated Petra Kvitova 6-3, 6-3 in the other semifinal.
If Errani triumphs on Saturday, she will be only the second Italian woman to win at Roland Garros — two years after Francesca Schiavone’s breakthrough triumph, and the first player ranked outside the top-20 to win in Paris since 1976.
“I have no words, it’s incredible,” she said. “It was very windy and one side was easy and the other side more difficult. It’s an amazing feeling. I did not expect this and I can’t believe it.”
Sharapova, the 2004 Wimbledon, 2006 US Open and 2008 Australian Open champion, will become just the 10th woman to complete a career Grand Slam if she takes Saturday’s final.
But she admitted she is in for a tough contest against Errani, who she has never played before.
“It’ll be a tough final. She’s a great clay court player and it will be a real challenge,” Sharapova said.
