Bartoli beats Zakopalova to reach Paris Open final

By Reuters

Local favourite Marion Bartoli reached the final of the Paris Open with a 7-6 6-0 victory over Czech Klara Zakopalova on Saturday. 

Second seed Bartoli was pushed to a tiebreak in the first set, which she won 7-3, before winning six games in a row to secure a straightforward victory. 

Bartoli, the tournament's favourite after top seed Maria Sharapova of Russia was knocked out in the quarter-finals on Friday, will take on either German ninth seed Angelique Kerber or Belgian Yanina Wickmayer.
