Williams Wins French Open

June 9, 2015

Despite suffering from the flu, Serena Williams beat Czech underdog Lucie Safarova in a gripping French Open tennis final. Williams’ win was her 20th grand slam singles crown.

The first set went to Williams 6-3, however, Safarova came back in the second winning the tie-break 7-2 to take the set 6-7. The final set was won convincingly by Williams 6-2.

This win is Williams’ third title in Paris after also winning in 2002 and 2013. The world No.1 overcame nine double-faults to defeat Safarova.

Williams has now moved above 1920s legend Helen Wills-Moody and into third place on the women’s all-time grand slam leaderboard. Only Australian Margaret Smith Court, with 24 slams, and Steffi Graf with 22 remain ahead of Williams.

The French Open is the only tennis major to be played on clay.
