Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
From unseeded to Champion, the women's side of the French Open produced a surprise winner. The door for a new champion was left open, as four of the last five champions (Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova) did not play due to vastly different circumstances. However, Jelena Ostapenko came from no where to capture the title. The 19-year-old Latvian overcame a set deficit to beat 3rd seed Simona Halep 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. It was the third time in the last four matches Ostapenko had to overcome a first set loss, and all four of her last matches went to a decisive third set. With the Williams sisters getting older, and the likes of Sharapova perhaps never being the same as she was in her prime, is Ostapenko the new face of women's tennis? Time will tell, but she is the Longhorndave Sportswoman of the Week!
