At last, after watching the Coupe Suzanne-Lenglen being presented to Maria Sharapova in 2014 and Jelena Ostapenko in 2016, Simona Halep gets to plant a kiss on the trophy.
"I kissed it many times to be sure that it's going to stay in my heart forever. It's heavy, it's beautiful, and I'm really happy that it's "mine."
