American Sofia Kenin to face teenager Iga Swiatek in French Open women’s final

Kenin will carry a 16-1 mark in Grand Slam action this season into Saturday’s championship match against Iga Swiatek of Poland.

“I’m going to be, like, an underdog,” said Swiatek, who is just 19. She’s ranked 54th. She’s never won a tour-level title. She’d never been past the fourth round at a Slam. And she’s been as dominant as can be so far at the French Open.

Swiatek became the lowest-ranked women’s finalist at Roland Garros since the WTA computer rankings began in 1975, advancing with her latest lopsided win, this one 6-2, 6-1 against Argentine qualifier Nadia Podoroska.

“It seems unreal. On one hand, I know that I can play great tennis. On the other hand, it’s kind of surprising for me. I never would have thought that I’m going to be in the final. It’s crazy,” Swiatek said. “I just kept believing in myself. It’s amazing for me.”

Delta Goodrem reflects on biggest beauty blunder as a teenager

Delta Goodrem admits she cringes over photos of herself from the early 2000s because of one regrettable beauty trend

Delta Goodrem grew up in the spotlight, having signed her first record deal with Sony at the age of 15, before joining the cast of Neighbours two years later.

But the Born to Try singer, 35, finds herself cringing these days when she looks back on her rise to fame – and it’s all because of one rather outdated beauty trend.

Delta revealed on Channel Seven’s Sunrise on Monday that she would over-pluck her eyebrows in her teens and early twenties because pencil-thin brows were fashionable at the time.
