Lucie Safarova has expressed her delight of reaching a first Grand Slam final after beating Ana Ivanovic in the French Open semi-final on Thursday.
Safarova became the first Czech woman in 34 years to reach the final at Roland Garros following a 7-5 7-5 win over 2008 champion Ivanovic.
"It is a dream come true. I cannot believe it," said Safarova after converting a third match point," she told BBC Sport.
"I started slowly but tried to keep up the level and play really aggressively because that was the only way to win."
