Less than 24 hours after she claimed her maiden singles slam title, Krejcikova became the first woman since Mary Pierce in 2000 to lift both trophies at the clay-court major. Only seven women have completed the titles sweep at Roland-Garros. “Right now after all of this happened, this last two weeks, last two days, I feel really relieved and relaxed," Krejcikova said. In addition to her pair of trophies, Krejcikova will reclaim the No. Krejcikova and Siniakova are both 25 but have extensive experience playing together, having started their partnership in the juniors back in 2013.
