Jelena Ostapenko has produced an incredible performance against Simona Halep in the Roland-Garros final, belting a backhand winner for her first major title.

Jelena Ostapenko completed her wonderful and wholly improbable two-week journey from teenage hopeful to dazzling Grand Slam champion on Saturday when she came from a set down to blitz Simona Halep at Roland-Garros with one of the tournament’s most stupendous performances.
