French Open: 6/10/17

Ostapenko Upsets No. 3 Halpe to Win First Grand Slam Title – Game, set, meet tennis’ newest champion. Jelena Ostapenko beat Simona Halep 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 to win the French Open and become the first Latvian to ever win a major. And how about this crazy nugget from our stats team: Ostapenko is the first player (male or female) to win a first tour-level title at a Grand Slam since Gustavo Kuerten 20 years ago, on June 8, 1997 … the day Ostapenko was born.
