    Bethanie Mattek-Sands of the U.S. and Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic are one victory away from their second French Open women’s doubles title and fifth major championship overall.

    The top-seeded duo of Mattek-Sands and Safarova advanced to the final at Roland Garros by beating No. 3 Martina Hingis of Switzerland and Chan Yung-jan of Taiwan 6-4, 6-2.

    Mattek-Sands and Safarova won the French Open in 2015. They’ve also won two Australian Open titles, including in January, and last year’s U.S. Open, meaning they are bidding for a third major trophy in a row.

    In the final, they will face the Australian pair of Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua, who eliminated Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova of the Czech Republic 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 in the semifinals.
