The women’s side saw its fair share of history making moments, thanks to Barbora Krejcikova who saw her dreams become reality on the terre battue.

The Czech player became the first female to win both the French Open singles and doubles title since the 2000 edition when Mary Pierce accomplished the feat. It was a historic accomplishment punctuated by Krejcikova thinking of her late coach, Jana Novotna. The 25-year-old's coach had a terrific career of her own, winning the 1998 Wimbledon title and 12 major titles on the doubles court. Novotna died of cancer in 2017 at the age of 49 years old.

"I hope she's happy" Krejcikova said following her Roland Garros triumph.

The unseeded player defeated Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, 6-1, 2-6, 6-4, in the final to win the tournament in just her fifth Grand Slam singles main draw appearance. Then, not even 24 hours later, the 25-year-old teamed up with her usual partner, Katerina Sniakova, to defeat Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Iga Swiatek.

The unforgettable run in Paris pushed her to a career-high of No. 15 in the WTA rankings.
