Jasmine Paolini has etched her name in history, becoming the first Italian player to reach the finals in both singles and doubles at the prestigious French Open.

Her remarkable journey continued as she and Sara Errani defeated Marta Kostyuk and Elena-Gabriela Ruse in a thrilling doubles match, winning 1-6, 6-4, 6-1. On Sunday, they will face the formidable duo of Coco Gauff and Katerina Siniakova in the doubles final.

Paolini’s impressive run doesn’t stop there. She will also face two-time defending champion Iga Swiatek in the highly anticipated singles final on Saturday.

This marks a remarkable milestone in Paolini’s career, as she seeks to claim her first Grand Slam title. Gauff, last year’s US Open champion, was defeated by Swiatek in the singles semifinals, setting the stage for an electrifying showdown between Paolini and Swiatek.

While Paolini and Gauff have not won a major women’s doubles title, their opponents, Errani and Siniakova, have both won Grand Slams with different partners. The men’s doubles final will feature Marcelo Arevalo and Mate Pavic against Simone Bolelli and Andrea Vavassori.

Arevalo and Pavic defeated the top-seeded pair of Marcel Granollers and Horacio Zeballos in a thrilling match, winning 3-6, 6-4, 7-5. The stage is set for an unforgettable finale at Roland Garros, with Paolini poised to make history in both singles and doubles.
