Paris - Fourth seed Garbine Muguruza became the first Spanish woman in 16 years to reach the French Open final with a 6-2, 6-4 defeat of Australian veteran Samantha Stosur on Friday.

Muguruza, 22, will face either defending champion and world number one Serena Williiams, who beat her in last year's Wimbledon final, or unseeded Kiki Bertens in Saturday's title match.

Conchita Martinez was the last Spaniard to get to the Roland Garros final in 2000 when she lost to Mary Pierce while Arantxa Sanchez Vicario was the country's last champion in Paris in 1998.
