Sloane was hurting Simona in the first set. "There's no one I'd rather lose to than the No.1 in the world so congratulations to you and your team".

At this time past year, Stephens wasn't even ranked in the WTA top 100.

"I just try to go day to day, take it moment by moment", said Stephens, who has a flawless 6-0 record in finals.

Top-ranked Simona Halep has won the French Open by defeating Sloane Stephens 3-6, 6-4, 6-1. Halep is looking for her first career Major title.

Down a set and a break in the second, Halep rose to the challenge and started moving the American around the court to the joy of an openly pro-Halep crowd at the Philippe-Chatrier Court.

We are at the ultimate match of this year's French Open.

But Halep to her credit never stopped fighting, even though she dropped her serve in the opening game of the next set, she bounced back with two breaks of her own to lead 4-2.

Am I gonna get furious at you because you can't sit through a bad television show? "I'm refueling and getting ready for a fight". The 25-year-old's UFC ledger reaches a ideal 3-0, while the veteran Arlovski sees the end of a modest two-fight winning streak.

One key: Halep began putting a little more air under the ball, being a little less aggressive, waiting for Stephens to make mistakes.

It required nerves of steel from Halep to overcome the challenge that Stephens had put before her. Halep, a 26-year-old Romanian, and the 10th-seeded Stephens, a 25-year-old American, are among the best there is right now at using instinct and speed to track down tough-to-reach shots and force opponents to hit another. 'I think winning here is very special for her and I'm glad she finally got her first slam.

Halep, however, surrendered the advantage and it went to 4-4. She capped off the fourth game with a wonderful victor at the net.

Stephens only broke into the world's top 10 for the first time by winning in Miami, but will leave Roland Garros ranked fourth no matter what happens on Saturday.

Stephens then saved the only break point she faced when serving for the set at 5-3, 30-40, and held.

These two have played seven times and Halep has won five of those meetings.

Bueno was a dominant player during the late 1950s and 1960s. Her third defeat with a major title on the line came against Caroline Wozniacki at the Australian Open in January.

"I felt that and I said, "it's not going to happen again, but it's okay. I think that has helped me". Halep has also won both encounters played on clay in straight sets, including beating Stephens in the fourth round here in 2014.

1 or to win Grand Slam?

It was Stephens' first loss in a tournament final after going 6-0 in her previous appearances.

Prior to Saturday, the victor of the first set had won 43 of the past 46 women's major finals.

Halep beat Stephens the last four times they played each other.
