Roland Garros Day 12 - Swiatek and Gauff set up sizzling final; When Catherine met Amelie

After Coco Gauff and Iga Swiatek set up a dream women's final, Catherine, David and Matt are joined by Pam Shriver to review the semi-finals, to discuss the careers of Gauff and Swiatek to date and the possibility of a new rivalry blossoming, and to look ahead to Saturday's final. How has Gauff developed over the last few years? And how does Swiatek compare to other dominant World No.1s?

We also chat about the men's semi-finals and the spectacular Casper Ruud-Holger Rune aggro before moving on to Catherine's chat with Amelie Mauresmo about the night session scheduling and issue of how female players have been treated at this tournament.
