Japanese compatriots Akane Yamaguchi and Sayaka Takahashi will clash for the French Open title. Akane comes into the game after composing a three-set victory against Korean badminton player AN Seyoung, winning 21-13, 10-21, and 21-18. Meanwhile, Sayaka Takahashi won against Indian tennis star PV Sindhu.
In the last four meetings, Yamaguchi has beaten Sayaka in three sets once and two sets thrice. Her last game against Sayaka came in the All England Open last year when she prevailed 21-13, 21-15. Yamaguchi is ranked at fifth while Sayaka comes as an underdog as the fifteenth-ranked player but a win over tennis stalwart PV Sindhu would have her confidence sky-high.
