Casey Dellacqua is through to the final of the women’s doubles at the French Open after a convincing 6-3 6-2 victory over the tournaments number 2 seeds with partner Yaroslava Shvedova.
Yet to drop a set all tournament, Dellacqua and Shvedova raced through their semi-final against Russians Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina in 68 minutes.
While Roland Garros is just the third time Dellacqua and Shvedova have played together, the pair won the esteemed Madrid title last month.
In the Madrid semifinals the pair overcame Lucie Safarova and Bethanie Mattek-Sands, their opponents in Sunday’s French Open decider 7-5 3-6 10-7.
Dellacqua won the mixed doubles in 2011 with American Scott Lipsky, but is chasing her maiden Grand Slam women’s doubles title after losing three finals with fellow Australian Ashleigh Barty in 2013.
She also fell in the Roland Garros doubles final in 2008 when partnering Italy’s Francesca Schiavone.
