No regrets for Halep after French Open 'hurt'

Jelena Ostapenko staged a remarkable comeback to beat Simona Halep in the French Open final, becoming the first player from Latvia to win a grand slam singles crown.

Ostapenko hit 54 winners, but it wasn't just the sheer number - it was also the timing.

"She has great ball-striking ability and when she's hot you don't touch the ball, you become a spectator", Halep's coach, Darren Cahill said of the 20-year-old Ostapenko who hit 54 winners and as many unforced errors. "It was my dream always as a child to win here". She has a lot of advantage because she knows most of the match depends on her side.

When asked about her approach after being down 0-3 in the second set, Ostapenko said she was still trying to play very aggressive. "A couple of games, everything turned my way".

She was in similarly desperate straits in the third set when 1-3 in arrears. "To all my family watching, my Mom is here watching, I wouldn't be here without you". Congrats Simona, you were playing awesome.

Russian Federation urges dialogue between Qatar, Arab neighbors to end dispute
Saudi Arabia also sealed Qatar's only land border, a key passageway for food imports. Mr Trump said he wanted Qatar "back among the unity of nations".

"Of course I will probably now will have more pressure and attention, but I'm going to try to deal with that", she was quoted as saying by BBC Sport.

"I would like to thank my team, my parents". Not coincidentally, that was also the last time at any Grand Slam tournament that none of the women's quarterfinalists had previously won a major championship.

If he wins, Nadal will become only the second player, man or woman, to win 10 titles at the same major tournament.

Though Ostapenko broke Halep again in the fifth game, she failed to convert the lead as she lost her service twice more, first in the sixth game and then in the tenth, enabling Halep to win the set 6-4.

However, history looked a long way from repeating itself when she was a point away from being a set and 4-0 down to the no.3 seed. Ostapenko dug deep and found the vulnerabilities in Halep's game to break her back and then forge ahead.

Froome forced down into fourth in Criterium du Dauphine
This great victory is for her. "There's still a long way to the Tour but I'm really happy with my condition now". Three-time Tour champion Froome finished fourth overall, 1:33 off the pace and one second behind Martin.

"I still can not believe I am the Roland Garros champion and I'm only 20". I fought for every point.

Two years later, in 2009, she would win the Open 10-12 in the 12-year-old category, at the Tennis Club de Boulogne Billancourt, a stone's throw from Roland Garros, joining Amelie Mauresmo and Justine Henin on the list of winners. Hurts a lot, and I need time just to - I don't know. I'm really, really happy. "We will see what is gonna be".
