The Pole backed up her September breakthrough by marching towards her maiden major crown, first by stunning top seed and former World No.1 Simona Halep with the loss of just three games. She then dispatched surprise quarter and semifinalists Martina Trevisan and Nadia Podoroska respectively.

"After winning against Simona, I already thought about this tournament as, like, my lifetime achievement. Really, I had no expectations," she admitted after hoisting the Coupe Suzanne-Lenglen for the first time.

"I think at the end I really just enjoyed the moment. It's not that I don't care if I'm going to win or lose. I'm just not thinking about it all the time. I'm focusing on the things I do right now because winning is just an effect of my work that I'm doing every minute."

The victory in Paris not only secured her Top 20 debut and her first WTA title, but also made her the first Polish player to win a Grand Slam singles title.
