TENNIS- Czech teenager Marketa Vondrousova defeated Britain’s Johanna Konta to enter her maiden French Open final.

19-year-old Vondrousova fought 7-5, 7-6 (7/2) in damp and windy conditions to edge past Konta.

The 19-year-old Russian is the first teenager since Ana Ivanovic at the 2007 French Open and the first teenager to reach a Grand Slam final.

World number 38 Vondrousova will face either eighth seed Ashleigh Barty or fellow teenager Amanda Anisimova in Saturday's final.
