The Latest Osuigwe wins all American girls' final in Paris

JELENA Ostapenko has completed an extraordinary grand slam fairytale, upstaging Simona Halep to win the French Open.

Jelena Ostapenko has stunned the tennis world by winning the French Open, coming from behind to beat Simona Halep in the final 4-6 6-4 6-3.

The 20-year-old may have been unseeded going into the tournament, but her ranking will fly up afterwards from No. 47 to just outside the top 10 at No. 12.

The Romanian had played the percentages, with just one victor and two errors, and she looked set to end her wait for a major title when she moved 3-0 up in the second.

It was the second defeat in the final here for Romanian Halep, who was also bidding to become world number one by winning the trophy.

"I can not believe I'm Roland Garros champion at only 20 years old, it's an wonderful event, I love you guys it's so unbelievable to be here", an ecstatic Ostapenko said in an on-court interview.

Brilliant winners were exchanged in the first moments of the second set but the momentum had clearly shifted to Halep's favour, as she took a quick 3-0 lead. If the third seed managed to put a potential victor back into play, the youngster would hit another victor which would land inside more often than not.

Halep doesn't believe she did much wrong on court and neither does her coach, Cahill.

"She was on an excursion with her father at Roland Garros and she said, "Maybe one time I will become a champion here"," she added. Secondly, not a single player from Latvia, man or woman, had ever captured a Grand Slam title.

She stormed to the last five games, officially winning her first grand slam title by crushing a backhand return victor down the line. "I have no words", said an ecstatic Ostapenko.

- Ostapenko and Halep split four breaks of serve in the opening six games.

"I was trying to enjoy the match and fight for every point", Ostapenko said.

However, she admitted that when she came across a grass court for the first time, it was hardly love at first sight.

After 2014, Halep had once again a chance to win the French Open, but eventually, she missed it.
