Mladenovic cries with joy for repeating title with Babos

The Hungarian Babos and the French Mladenovic, who were expelled from the US Open because of COVID, beat Guarachi and Krawczyk in the doubles final.


Almost a month after crying bitterly over his expulsion from the US Open for being "in prolonged contact" with a COVID-19 player, Benoit Paire, Kristina Mladenovic shed tears again, but this time from joy after having conquered the fifth Grand Slam title of her career in the doubles category, fourth with her partner Timea Babos. The French and the Hungarian beat the Chilean Alexa Guarachi and the American Desirae Krawczyk in the Roland Garros final by 6-4 and 7-5 in 1h: 33.

The 2019 champions repeated their title in Paris, the second of the year after the Australian Open, and although they will always have the resentment of having also won the US Open, for them this Sunday's triumph is an extraordinary climax to a career that is on the way to being legendary because at 27 they still have a long time to go to continue winning trophies. Mladenovic had already won the French major in 2016 with her compatriot Caroline Garcia and is the fourth active player with the most tag team titles tied with Errani and Mattek-Sands, while all of Babos' feats have come with her friend Kiki .

A Guarachi, a Chilean who does not speak a single word in Spanish because she grew up in the United States, and Krawczyk have the great consolation of having reached the final of a Slam in the first few changes and having started their relationship with a very good foot.
