Time was, a semifinal match in a big tournament between two teenagers was no biggie, really.
But it’s been a rare sight in recent years.
The last teenager to even make the final four in Rome was Victoria Azarenka – all the way back in 2009.
But on Saturday, 17-year-old Coco Gauff takes on 19-year-old Iga Swiatek.
For Swiatek, it will be the second match of the day.
