A year after she blew a one-set lead in the French Open final to allow unseeded Jeļena Ostapenko to claim victory on the clay, Simona Halep bounced back from losing the first set to defeat Sloane Stephens and seize the first Grand Slam title of her career, 3–6, 6–4, 6-1.

Halep, who also lost in the French Open final in 2014 as well as this year’s Australian Open final, commanded the last half of the match and outright dominated Stephens in the decisive third set. She’ll no longer be among the notorious number of women to reach the top WTA ranking without winning a Grand Slam event.
