Jelena Ostapenko, ranked 47th, is first unseeded player to win Roland Garros since 1933. #RG17 had a long shortlist--she was barely on it.— Ben Rothenberg (@BenRothenberg) June 10, 2017

Jelena Ostapenko is coached by two women: her mother and Anabel Medina. Hopefully this will open the door to many more female coaches— Christopher Clarey (@christophclarey) June 10, 2017
