Jeff CohnCorrespondent IIIJune 6, 2013

Maria Sharapova has defeated Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 2-6, 6-4 in the first French Open semifinal of the day.

Sharapova will look to defend her title from last year on Saturday.

Though she did have many patchy spots in the match she showed that her power and mental strength may be enough to challenge a potential (and likely) Serena Williams in the final at Roland Garros.

The second semifinal (featuring Serena Williams and Sara Errani) will be broadcast live on NBC. The live blog for that match is here.

Thanks for tuning in, folks!
