The No. 1-ranked Halep beat Sloane Stephens 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 in the final in Paris on Saturday. She's grown up a lot in the last 12 months.
The 26-year-old had suffered three agonizing defeats when one set from glory at the majors, with last year's loss in Paris after leading Jelena Ostapenko by a set and 3-0 perhaps the most painful. It was her first major singles title after losing three previous finals, including in January at the Australian Open. Commenting on ITV, Courier said: ´I think there's a little bit of poetic justice that Simona Halep won in the way that she did here.
Halep first became world number one in August past year and has now spent 31 weeks in total at the top of the rankings. There was a special atmosphere during the final and not only.
The number 10 seed in the showcase claycourt tournament, who will break into the top five when the latest world rankings are released on Monday, even seemed genuinely pleased for the Romanian, one of several players to have described Stephens's journey back from injury as inspirational. It's a handsome thing. She thanked the Romanian fans for always being there to cheer her, wherever she played.
