    Serena Williams wins 20th Grand Slam title

    June 07, 2015

    World number one Serena Williams survived a mid-match meltdown to beat Czech Lucie Safarova 6-3 6-7(2) 6-2 to win the French Open on Saturday, her 20th grand slam trophy.


    The American, who skipped practice on Friday because of a bout of flu, opened up a 6-3 4-1 lead but suddenly slumped as the 13th-seeded Safarova stormed back into contention, even moving 2-0 up in the decider.


    But Williams regained her composure and won the last six games to win the claycourt major for the third time after her 2002 and 2013 titles.


    She is now third on the list of all-time major champions behind Australian Margaret Court (24) and German Steffi Graff (22).
