Simona Halep wins French Open – she’s no longer a number one player without a grand slam title

Am so happy with the result of the French Open women’s final. Simona Halep beat Sloane Stephens in three sets to claim her first grand slam crown. At 26 and ranked number one in the world, her inability to win one of the majors was weighing bigger than ever. But she’s done it just as another slamless #1, Caroline Wozniacki, won her first slam in January at the Australian Open (over Halep), This reduces the slamless #1 club to just Dinera Safina (retired), Jelena Janković (ranked in the 500s now), and Karolína Plíšková who is currently ranked number six and still has a realistic shot at winning a slam before retiring. I think Halep will win more slams now that she’s got this monkey off her back – and she deserves to. She works hard, has a lot of heart and a lot of class.

Your 2018 @rolandgarros champion @simonahalep has a special message for her fans!
