Serena Wil­liams Wins 3rd French Open

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Serena Wil­liams feared she was too ill to play the night be­fore her French Open fi­nal against Lu­cie Sa­farova.

The Amer­i­can, 33, won 6-3 6-7 (2-7) 6-2 to claim her third French Open and 20th Grand Slam ti­tle.

How­ever, the sick­ness she had strug­gled with through­out the event al­most ended her hopes on the eve of the fi­nal.

"It's been a night­mare 48 hours," said the world num­ber one. "I kind of was in the locker room just lay­ing down af­ter my semi-fi­nal."
