Jelena ostapenko conquer's of the French open 2017

PARIS, France
Jelena Ostapenko capped a fairytale fortnight with her first Grand Slam crown, shocking Simona Halep, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 to win Roland Garros.

Playing in her first major final, the Latvian trailed Halep by a break in both the second and third sets - saving three break points that would have seen her fall behind 0-4 in the former - to win her first singles title on Saturday.

The first player to win the French Open final since 1991, Ostapenko became the first unseeded woman to win on the terre battue since 1933.

"Jelena showed today she has a champion's mentality," Martina Navratilova said while commentating for ITV UK. "Everybody can hit the ball hard but can you control it? You've got to have the goods as well. She also has a big improvement possibility on her serve. When she gets that, watch out.
