Coco Gauff reaches the semi-finals of the French Open in doubles and singles

PARIS – Coco Gauff reached the semifinals of the French Open in doubles on Wednesday, a day after advancing so far in singles.

Gauff, the reigning US Open singles champion, and Katerina Siniakova won the doubles quarterfinals 6-0, 6-2 against Miyu Kato and Nadiia Kichenok.

Gauff and Siniakova have yet to drop a set in the tournament and will face Americans Caroline Dolehide and Desirae Krawczyk on Friday.

This is Gauff’s third consecutive appearance in the doubles semifinals at Roland Garros. She hasn’t won the title yet. In 2022 and 2023, Gauff’s partner was Jessica Pegula, who withdrew from the French Open this year.

Siniakova, who hails from the Czech Republic, owns a Grand Slam career in women’s doubles with Barbora Krejcikova.

Gauff defeated Ons Jabeur in three sets in the singles quarterfinals on Tuesday, and the 20-year-old American will face No. 1 Iga Swiatek on Thursday for a spot in that final.
