Lucie Safarova reflects on "dream come true"

Lucie Safarova says that it is a "dream come true" to reach a Grand Slam final after beating Ana Ivanovic in the semi-final of the French Open.

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."

She will face 19-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams in Saturday's final after the world number one disposed of Timea Bacsinszky yesterday.
