Yastremska blasts the ball. When she gets hot, its tough to stop it
Now she won 2 very very close finals this year

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

It was so well deserved victory for Dayana. But I'm so proud of her that after lost 2nd set she found her game in the 3rd. It's a champions mentality!

High quality bashing for 3 hours, both of them saving MPs. No dips in intensity even if there were some headcasey/chokey moments. Hats off to both players.

She would have won regardless, but I wish Yastremska didn’t resort to this fake MTO bullshit. She wasn’t hampered in ANY way, and she’s good enough not to need to do that. Her returning was insane all week, Caro’s first serve is better than 93% of the rest of the tours and Dayana was still hitting easy winners off it.

Poor Garcia was in tears at the end. She hasn’t lost a final in AGES (her only previous losses both coming to Timea Bacsinszky, both in Mexico, in the space of like 3 weeks). I wish she’d converted her MP after fighting back SO hard, but to be fair she extended it an hour and a half longer than it could have been.

Still not sure she needed to exhaust herself like this before RG, the arm and ankle tape are worrying. But it’s good to see her in form.

Never expect Yastremska to win after she gifted away that 2 MP in the 2nd set. This was really a great fight in champion-style!

Congrats Yaz. Impressive Final
Caro she only lost because she gave Yaz the pace she needs for her timing hitting winners

Great final. Yastremska blusts the returns. Ironic that Ukraine produced the type of player that can dismantle Elina. Nice looking young mom as well

Caro Tough loss

Well-deserved, well-earned win for Yastremska, her returning today was phenomenal.

Intense, competitive match whose intensity built as it went along. Would have been nice if the TB had been a bit closer, but still all in all one of the most entertaining matches of the year.

If she was not playing in native France and gotten tons of moral support from the crowd, Garcia could have lost already in the second set. Relying on daddy's pep talk on every twist and turn is rather embarrassing for her age.

Well done to Dayana, what ball striking and mental fortitude to withstand the momentum against her
