Serena Williams defeated Lucie Safarova 6-3, 6-7 (2), 6-2 to claim her third French Open title and 20th career Grand Slam title Saturday morning.
Her win was not without drama, however. Serena won the first set and was leading the second 4-1 before allowing Lucie to come back and claim the second set 7-6 in a lopsided tiebreak.
Serena would fall behind in the third set 2-0 and then rally to win the next six points to claim the set 6-2.
Serena has won the last three Grand Slam tournaments and hopes to claim the next two to match Steffi Graf’s Open era record of 22 Grand Slam title wins.
Not bad for a girl with the flu!
