Congrats are in order for Serena Williams. The 31-year old powerhouse just won the French Open after losing to her sister Venus 11 years ago. The California native slayed her competition, Maria Sharipova, with a final score of 6-4,6-4 on the Paris outdoor clay courts. This marks Serena’s 2nd French open title and 16th Grand Slam singles title.
Shortly after taking the stage to receive her trophy, the record breaking athlete gave her entire speech in French. Looks like living in France paid off.
