1989 French Open – Women's Singles

17-year-old Arantxa Sánchez Vicario defeated two-time defending champion Steffi Graf in the final, 7–6(8–6), 3–6, 7–5, to win the Women's Singles tennis title at the 1989 French Open. This ended Graf's winning streak of Grand Slam singles titles at five.[1] Graf served for the championship at 5–3 in the third set, but lost the game at love and won only three more points in the match from that point. It was the first of Sánchez Vicario's three French Open titles, which she also won in 1994 and 1998.
