After the match, which took place at the Philippe Chatrier Court in Paris, Williams spoke to the crowd in French.

She went on to say, “I didn’t think 11 years ago I would still be playing.”
“Honestly, I just feel so good. This is the only one I haven’t won more than once,” she said.
The tennis champ received her first French Open crown in 2002 after beating her sister Venus. She now holds the record as the oldest woman to win a major tile since 33-year-old Martina Navratilova in 1990.
