Serena Williams Wins 3rd French Open
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."
