By contrast, her opponent, Anna-Lena Groenefeld will be appearing in her fourth mixed doubles Slam final and second with partner Robert Farah, with whom she was also runner-up at Wimbledon a year ago.
Bacsinszky nearly dropped her serve but held on and won the match when Mladenovic hit a forehand wide.
"Because to play semi-final of Roland Garros on your birthday, I think it's really nice".
And when the match did eventually get underway the windy conditions disrupted Mladenovic's flow in-front of a vocal home crowd.
Ostapenko faces 30th-seeded Timea Bacsinszky in Thursday's semifinal.
Only two matches were finished, while the scheduled men's quarter-finals didn't even start and were instead moved to Wednesday. "I know it won't be a bed of roses".
The two men's quarterfinals - Novak Djokovic vs Dominic Thiem and Rafael Nadal vs Pablo Carreno Busta - that were supposed to take place on Tuesday, have been rescheduled for Wednesday.
"I had so many great moments on the court, big wins and played a great game", she said.
Karolina Pliskova needed three sets to get past Paraguay's Veronica Cepede Royg while Simona Halep cruised to the quarterfinal with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Carla Suarez-Navarro.

The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro will start at $649 in the US and be available in silver, space gray, gold and rose gold colors. As you might expect from a keynote that stretched well past two hours, iOS 11 was allocated a fair amount of stage time.
Ostapenko's arrival in the final four on the eve of her 20th birthday was much harder to foresee.
She finds the fact that she'll be playing Ostapenko on the day of their birthdays fairly amusing.
"Today it wasn't good enough, but now I am going to try and do better next time", said the Dane, a two-time US Open finalist. I'm really happy to be through to my second semifinal here. This is the first Grand Slam tournament since the 1979 Australian Open that none of the eight women's quarterfinalists had won a major title.
Perhaps the rain allowed Ostapenko to overcome a loss in the first set to win the last two to advance to the semifinals.
Mladenovic had high hopes of becoming the first French champion since Mary Pierce in 2000, but never really clicked on Court Philippe-Chatrier. They play Thursday, which happens to be Ostapenko's 20th birthday and Bacsinszky's 28th.
Ostapenko is the first woman from Latvia to make it to a Grand Slam semifinal in the professional era.
Mladenovic tried to look on the positives of her French Open campaign, which at one point had been in doubt because of a back problem.
One Frenchwoman however does remain in the draw: The player Mladenovic won the doubles title with a year ago in Paris, Caroline Garcia, who will play second-seed Karolina Pliskova in Wednesday's quarterfinals. This means that all four men's quarter-finals will be played on Wedneday with Andy Murray against Kei Nishikori and Stan Wawrinka facing Marin Cilic.
Nine-time victor Nadal was due to face fellow Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta, while defending champion Djokovic of Serbia was scheduled to go up against Austria's Dominic Thiem.
