The dream of a first grand slam final for 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova was dashed as she lost to Australian Ashleigh Barty in the last four at Roland Garros Friday.

The young American, who became the youngest tournament semifinalist in 13 years, fell 6-7 6-3 6-3 to Barty, will take on 19-year-old Czech Marketa Vondrousova in Saturday’s final.

Vondrousova beat Briton Johanna Konta 7-5 7-6 (7-2). Despite her defeat, Anisimova gave a good account of herself in a dramatic match on Court Suzanne-Lenglen.
