The 27-year-old Russian player can add another French Open title to her resume! The 6’2″ tennis extraordinaire became the champion of the French Open on June 7, after a three-set match. She swung against Simona Halep and came away with a win.

This French Open win makes this her fifth Grand Championship overall and it was the first three-set women’s final at the Open since 2001.

“I can’t believe it,” she said after the win, according to USA Today. “I never thought 7-8 years ago that I would win more Roland Garroses when I was 27 than any other Grand Slam ….To think that I won it two times – I’m so emotional I can’t even talk.”

Maria also revealed that this was one tough competition. “This is the toughest Grand Slam final I’ve ever played,” Maria said after the win. “All respect to Simona. I thought she played an unbelievable match today.”

We’re so happy for Maria! We can’t wait to see what she brings to the court for Wimbledon!

HollywoodLifers, how do you feel about Maria’s French Open win? Who were you rooting for? Let us know!
