The Czech 26-year-old Karolina Muchova was not a favorite to reach the last four in this Paris Campaign before the tournament but she showed real character and proved why she was world number 19 at one point with her clutch performances. She took care of the unseeded Russian Anastasia Pavlyuchenkovain the last-8 match in straights: 7-5, 6-2. Except for getting bagelled in round two against Nadia Podoroska where she completely got erased, the Czech player has not lost a set in the tournament.
The Belarusian World No.2 Aryna Sabalenka is the only player left in the draw apart from the Polish World No.1 Iga Swiatek who is yet to lose a set in the tournament.
