PARIS (AP) — The Latest on the French Open (all times local):


2:45 p.m.

Chun Hsin Tseng of Taiwan has won the boys’ title at the French Open by defeating top-seeded Sebastian Baez of Brazil 7-6 (5), 6-2.

The 16-year-old Tseng, who beat Australian Open champion Sebastian Korda of the United States in the semifinals, came back from a break down in the first set to claim his first Grand Slam title.

“Today I was playing really well on the baseline and solid,” the fourth-seeded Tseng said. “I think the first set I was a little bit tight in the beginning, and after I just enjoyed and relaxed.”


2:30 p.m.

Simona Halep will try to add a first Grand Slam title to her No. 1 ranking when she plays No. 10 Sloane Stephens in the French Open final.

The match Saturday is the 26-year-old Halep’s fourth major final. She has lost all three in the past, including two at Roland Garros in 2014 and last year. Halep also was the runner-up at the Australian Open this January.

She is trying to become the second Romanian woman to win a Grand Slam singles trophy. Her manager, Virginia Ruzici, won the French Open 40 years ago.

Stephens, a 25-year-old from Florida, has never lost a tournament final, going 6-0.

She won the U.S. Open last September for her first major title.

Halep beat Stephens the last four times they played each other.
