The Czech, rather used to the titles in ladies' doubles (Roland Garros and Wimbledon in 2018) and mixed doubles (Australian Open 2019, 2020, 2021) lived her heyday in solo at Roland Garros. Surprise winner after two epic matches against Greece's Maria Sakkari (after saving 1 match point in the semi-finals) and against Russian Anastasia Pavluchenkova. A moving crown dedicated to Jana Novotna, who died in 2017, who was her coach. 65th in January 2021, Barbora Krejcikova is 5th in the world after winning the first 3 titles of her career, including the first, masterful, at Roland Garros (reinforced by the title won in doubles with her compatriot Katerina Siniakova, with whom she also won the Masters).

Emma RADUCANU (8).
