Winning a first Grand Slam title is a special achievement, no matter how long it takes. For Simona Halep, winning the French Open title over Sloane Stephens was a long time coming but that made it all the more unforgettable.  

It was Halep's fourth Grand Slam final after previously losing to Maria Sharapova, Jelena Ostapenko, and, most recently, Caroline Wozniacki at the Australian Open. On Saturday, it seemed like the Romanian was going to miss out on her chance again, going down 0-2 in the second set after losing the first set. 

Instead, Halep flipped a switch and fought her way back, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1. It was a win that garnered praise from all across the tennis world. Her coach, Darren Cahill, was overjoyed for his student.

You never forget your first...

Halep will take a break now to celebrate before turning to the grass season. She holds onto the No. 1 ranking for the 32nd week.
