Halep will face 20-year-old Ostapenko in the women's singles final of the French Open on Saturday.

Djokovic WinsIt has been a while coming, but world no.1 Novak Djokovic has finally completed his long awaited career Grand Slam, adding the only trophy missing from his overflowing cabinet, beating Andy Murray in four sets in a lopsided final at Roland Garros this afternoon.
