PRINT VERSIONFILED IN: Tennis TAGGED: ,

A rematch of the 2011 Wimbledon Ladies Final highlights the French Open Women’s Semifinals live Thursday, June 7 on ESPN2 and ESPN3 at 8 a.m. — No. 2 seed Maria Sharapova vs. No. 4 Petra Kvitova.  The two met last summer in London with Kvitova winning her first major title.  In the other semifinal, US Open champ Sam Stosur of Australia will square off against the surprising No. 21 seed, Sara Errani of Italy.

With a win Thursday, Sharapova will reclaim the No. 1 ranking in the world for the first time since 2008, and if she wins the title on Saturday she will achieve a career Grand Slam.
