World No.1 victorious against Sloane Stephens to claim maiden major title in third Roland-Garros final.
Third time lucky for Simona
Runner-up Sloane Stephens was gracious in defeat - and, following her own 2017 injury woes, particularly empathetic about Simona Halep's tough journey. "I think winning here is very special for her and I'm glad she finally got her first slam. It's a beautiful thing, very special. No matter how hard the adversity that you go through, there is always light at the end of the tunnel, and I'm glad she finally got her light."
