Barbora Krejcikova (25) is crowned Queen of Paris!
The Czech wins the surprise final of the French Open 6: 1, 2: 6 and 6: 4 against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (29 / Russia).
After three sets she has her first Grand Slam title for sure!
It was a premiere for both finalists – the first Grand Slam final of their careers. And for Krejcikova her first big win! The big favorites of the tournament like Ashleigh Barty, Naomi Osaka or Serena Williams were all eliminated early.
Krejcikova dominates the first set, while Pavlyuchenkova plays strongly in the second, securing it in the second set ball – also thanks to an insider tip: The Russian eats Haribo golden bears during the breaks. The quick sugar obviously brings them forward!
However, the energy reserves are only sufficient for the second set – in the third, she has to admit defeat to the Czech.
