French Open Results: Samantha Stosur, Sara Errani Advance To Semifinals

The most-hyped matchups during the French Open are going to revolve around the men's side of the bracket on Tuesday, but that doesn't mean the women had nothing to offer in their quarterfinal matchups. With just a few days left at Roland Garros, Samantha Stosur and Sara Errani became one step closer to winning a major tennis tournament.

Stosur entered as the No. 6 seed the tournament and, just like her other results in France this year, the Australian was able to advance in straight sets once again on Tuesday morning. Stosur routed Dominika Cibulkova 6-4, 6-1 to advance to the semifinals.

Stosur's opponent in the semifinals will be Italy's Sara Errani. Errani entered the tournament ranked 21, but was able to score an upset over Angelique Kerber with a 6-3, 7-6 (7-2) victory in Tuesday's match. Errani has notched three wins this year already, but the major win would obviously put her on a much higher level.

Tuesday's quarterfinal matchups on the men's side of the bracket are slated to start later Tuesday morning.
