French Open 2014: Maria Sharapova beats Eugenie Bouchard to reach final

At first, the patrons of a packed Court Philippe Chatrier were not sure which of the two ladies in pink might win their affection on this blessedly sunny day. Would they remain faithful to their old flame, Maria Sharapova, or did the charms of the younger Eugenie Bouchard hold more long-term promise?

At the end of this very public menage a trois, they went with the Russian, rising to acclaim a 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 win that takes her into Saturday’s final of the French Open against Simona Halep. The gifted little Romanian, the No4 seed, beat Andrea Petkovic, 6-2, 7-6 in the second semi-final in front of a paltry audience after the theatre that had gone before.
