After a quick exit at her last Grand Slam tournament, Samantha Stosur is very much in the mix again at the French Open.

Stosur, who followed her 2011 U.S. Open title with a first-round loss at the Australian Open in January, made the semifinals at Roland Garros with a 6-4, 6-1 victory Tuesday over No. 15 seed Dominika Cibulkova.

The sixth-seeded Aussie will play No. 21 Sara Errani of Italy, who made her first Grand Slam semifinal with a 6-3, 7-6 (2) victory over 10th-seeded Angelique Kerber.

Stosur's match against Cibulkova was pretty much drama free, save a minor blip in the second set when, trailing 1-0, she faced three break points at love-40. But she won 13 of the next 14 points to take control and wound up winning the match's last six games. Stosur made only four unforced errors in the second set.

"Today, in tough moments, she gave me so many good winners, so many lines, and it was just everything going her way," Cibulkova said.
