Just two years ago, Serena Williams battled for her life fighting pulmonary embolisms in her lungs. Since then she's made her way back to the top of international women's tennis.
Today, she won the French Open for the 2nd time in her career. She beat Maria Sharapova 6-4, 6-4 at Roland Garros.
Williams won her first French Open title in 2002. At 31, Williams became the oldest woman to win a major title since Martina Navratilova at Wimbledon in 1990 at age 33. Her 11-year gap between Roland Garros titles is the longest for any woman.
This is Williams' 16th major title, and she is now one of only four women to win all four tennis majors twice.
I rank Serena Williams' competitive will right up there with Michael Jordan's.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) June 8, 2013
