40 years and 3 Grand Slam finals later, Romania found its mark again on the #grandslam map in #womenchampion and @wta No. 1 @simonahalep had finally found serenity at @rolandgarros by 3-6, 6-4, 6-1.
With a forgettable track record of 0-3 in finals, two at Roland Garros only, Simona had everything to prove this Saturday coming into the finals. And @sloanestephens, upcoming face of Women's Tennis in US had showcased her worthiness to fill #williams shoes taking first set.
With 3-6, 0-2 down, Stephens was gaining her momentum to clinch second title, after #usopen2017. But Simona showed the world what it takes to be World No. 1 , coming in the game from impossible situations and keeping calm in moments like this.
With @serenawilliams still to come back in full throttle, there are some big shoes to fill in Tennis. And with a lot of competitiveness in this season so far, with @carowozniacki and @elisvitolina going strong as well, there are a lot of exciting games expected ahead. But they have to reach to the next level to compete against current No. 1, not just physically but mentally as well.
