On Saturday tennis fans watched as the Czech Republic’s Barbora Krejcikova defeated Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the women’s final at the French Open.
But for Eurovision fans the real treat came afterwards when, ahead of the trophy presentation, France’s Eurovision 2021 star Barbara Pravi performed “Voilà.”
Singing from the stands of the storied Court Philippe Chatrier, Barbara was a vision of summer in bright yellow. Her high-rise pleated skirt helped define her silhouette, while her oversized short sleeves gave it added drama.

Barbara, who is famously petite, added height with a pair of super-tall platform heels with black straps around the ankles. She wore white booty socks, which brought a sporty element to the elegant look.
On Friday evening Barbara made sure she was relaxed and match-ready by hitting up the spa. In an Instagram Story she posted that at 23:30, shortly after Serbia’s Novak Djokovic defeated Rafael Nadal in four sets, she and her crew were leaving the spa!
And it appears they then headed to Philippe-Chatrier to survey the grounds ahead of her performance.
Barbara posted some snaps of her manager Elodie in the stands taking in the scene and even singing and doing a little dance of her own.
Barbara’s appearance at the French Open is the latest accolade she can claim following Eurovision.
Earlier this month the Paris-born star entered the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. Chart, hitting #70 with “Voilà”. The chart is based on overall streams and download sales of singles, and focuses on all territories outside the United States.
On top of this, Barbara recently unveiled the first eight dates of her European tour, which kicks off in March 2022. Tickets to her concert in Amsterdam’s Melkweg have already sold out.
Did you 40-love Barbara’s performance at the French Open? Let us know in the comments box below!
It was like singing on a cruise ship. Looked a bit cheap.
omg what a big honour! She is brilliant.
I think I have heard the song more than a 1000 times now and I like the Eurovision version best and her laugh at the end warms my heart. Tip of the day, if you want to listen to it many times, switch the t in youtube to an x and hit enter and you can listen to it on repeat without commercials
What the ‘deuce’? Playing ‘singles’ over and over. I ‘love’ it
Double Barba(o)ra victory!
I’m a tennis and Eurovision fan? I was so happy today?
Omg William thank you so much for this article…I was watching it live and I was so happy to see Barbara again…and of course to see our player Barbora winning
Thank you so much!!!
