As part of her media duties, Andreeva stopped by for a chat with Eurosport’s Barbara Schett.

With their studio off site, technology was used to make it appear as if the Russian was there with Schett.

As a technician carefully put Andreeva into position, the teen looked visibly stunned as Schett came into view.

When the shocked starlet gasped, Schett exclaimed: “I’m in London!”

Over in Paris, Andreeva replied: “Wow, what a technology.”

She then repeated “wow” twice, while staring around in awe.

The semi-finalist then dreamily said: “thank you.”

Fans adored her awestruck response, with one saying: “I love her.”

World No38 Andreeva beat Emina Bektas, Victoria Azarenka, Peyton Stearns, Varvara Gracheva and Sabalenka to book a spot in the last four.

Her run then ended at the hands of Italian Jasmine Paolini, who earned a spot in her maiden grand slam final in the process.

After her win, the 5ft 4in star said: “I’m more happy (than relieved) for sure! Thank you very much, merci beaucoup. It was a tough match. She’s playing unbelievable for 17-years-old, she’s so complete.

“I lost against her one month ago (in Madrid), so I thought ‘you have to do better’. Ball after ball I was more relaxed, even though on this stage it’s hard to be relaxed, and I’m really happy I managed to win in the end.

“I had in my mind, it was painful in Madrid. I wanted to step on court and do better, just to hit the ball (well) and enjoy, and it worked so I’m happy. I learned (to dream big) later than other players, maybe, but it’s the most important thing in sport and in life.

“I’m happy I could dream this moment. I don’t know what to say, I’m so emotional! Grazie mille, ragazzi, and merci beaucoup!”

Paolini, 28, will face Iga Swiatek in Saturday’s final – after the Pole beat Coco Gauff in the other semi-final.
