Video: Simona Halep Roland Garros 2017 semifinal Press Conference

Simona Halep beat No. 2 Karolina Pliskova, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3,and pushed her chances to a No. 1 world ranking even closer.

The Romanian suffered an ankle injury just weeks ago, but her play demonstrates that her movement is back, and so is her strength.

“To be in the final again is great. I hope to win this time,” Halep said. “But I am facing a young opponent, it will be a big challenge.”
