Serena Williams Wins French Open
The American, ranked number one, wrapped up her victory in two hours and one minute with a 6-3 6-7 (2-7) 6-2 win at Roland Garros.
The 33-year-old becomes the third player – male or female – to win 20 major singles titles.
Only Germany’s Steffi Graf on 22 has won more since the open era began in 1968, with Australia’s Margaret Court collecting 24 between 1960 and 1973.
It was Safarova’s first Grand Slam final.
