Johanna Konta has failed in her bid to become the first British woman to get to a tennis Grand Slam final since 1977.
The British number one was soundly beaten by 7-5 7-6 (7-2) by Czech teenager Markéta Vondroušová in the French Open.
Vondroušová, world number 38 before heading into Roland Garros this week, will play either eigth seed Ashleigh Barty or 17-year-old Amanda Anisimova - with none of the remaining women having ever made a Grand Slam semi-final before this tournament.
The wait for a female British grand slam winner continues, as not since Virginia Wade won Wimbledon in the Silver Jubilee year 42 years ago has a Brit made the final of a slam.
Konta contested her third grand slam semi-final, having lost all of her prior matches.
Friday's game represented a real chance for her to win a grand slam should she have made it through, having been the most experienced player left at the French Open.
Prior to this year's tournament, Konta had lost all four first-round matches at Roland Garros but had found form on clay this season, with a run to the final of the WTA event in Rome.
While Vondrousova remains a relatively new name on the scene, she has been the most in-form player since the Australian Open and is yet to drop a set at the tournament.
