And there is no second guessing, even though Ostapenko was clad in disbelief.
"I can't believe I am the French Open champion at just 20". It was my dream. "That really helped me".
Ostapenko's 50th victor of the match was another half-volley, helping her to a 5-3 lead, which she then converted against the serve by thumping Halep's delivery straight back past her. I fought for every point.
"I'm so glad it went my way".
She conjured up three set points with a laser forehand down the line, forcing the match to a third set with another sweetly-struck victor. But the Romanian, who had never faced Ostapenko before, bristled at the suggestion.
Doctors call Scalise's condition improved
Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, arrived at the hospital via helicopter in shock, with intense internal bleeding, Sava said. And as lawmakers discussed increasing security, House Speaker Paul Ryan urged them to come together following in the incident.
The stocky baseliner is the first unseeded champion in the professional era.
Not only that but she is the first unseeded woman to win the Suzanne Lenglen trophy since 1933 and she emulated the great Brazilian Gustavo Kuerten by claiming her first title of any kind on the hallowed Parisian claycourts.
Seemingly destined for defeat, Ostapenko had to do it the hard way. The last woman to lose the first set in the French and then rally for a win was Jen Capriati in 2001. Her road to the championship match hasn't been easy, but she has continued to impress each step of the way while knocking out ranked opponents. "It is our Alona Ostapenko!"
Shock French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko said she will keep true to her fearless, big-hitting game in the confident belief that more Grand Slam titles are just around the corner.
But few would have imagined that Ostapenko, who had lost her only French Open match before this run, would be the one to capitalize. She had previously won her quarter-final after trailing Elina Svitolina 3-6 1-5 and Halep was the latest victim of her determination.
Back on the attack Ostapenko surged 4-3 ahead only for more errors to allow Halep to break back for 4-4. The ball clipped the net and ballooned back into play with Halep no chance to reach it.
Incredibly, she walloped 54 winners during the two-hour contest, matching her error count, as she threw caution to the wind on a boiling hot day on Court Philippe Chatrier.
And if that wasn't enough, once she did arrive to the courts Saturday in Paris, Ostapenko was off her game early, losing the opening set.
Ostapenko has been coached her whole career by her mother Jelena Jakovleva, adding former world number 16 Anabel Medina Garrigues to the team only last month. While Halep faded in the second and third sets, Ostapenko kept going strong, and eventually came out on top.
Her "live by the sword, die by the sword" approach worked wonders when she was 3-1 down in both the second and 3rd sets.
