Jelena Ostapenko Pulls Off the Women’s French Open Upset in These Adidas Sneakers

Jelena Ostapenko, who was unseeded going into Saturday’s Women’s French Open final, wasn’t supposed to beat No. 3 overall ranked Simona Halep. But she pulled off the impossible, earning her first career title in the process.

The win was the first Grand Slam victory in Ostapenko’s career.

Ostapenko didn’t start well, losing the first set 4-6 and was behind 0-3 to Halep in the second. But the 20-year-old rallied, and won the final two sets 6-4 and 6-3.
