Now that Nadal's impressive run of nine titles in Roland Garros has been on hold due to injury, Spain installs another champion on the red clay, this time in the women's side!
Garbiñe Muguruza becomes the third straight first time female grand slam champion - a trend which started with Flavia Pennetta in the US Open last year, then Angelique Kerber in the Australian Open in January.
What's great about Garbiñe Muguruza is that she can be the female version of Nadal in the women's side - and I won't be surprised if this will be the first of her many RG titles.
It's seems like everyone in the women's field is delaying Serena's achievement of 22 grand slam titles, protecting Steffi Graf's record.
However, I have no doubt that Serena can achieve that number and even more. If she can be this strong on clay, which is, arguably, her 'weakest' surface, she can even be more fierce on grass in Wimbledon and on the hard courts of Flushing Meadows.
By the way, I love the way Serena speaks in French! She's really very relaxed already in speaking it! It helps naman talaga if your boyfriend is a local.
