All of this after Serena Williams beat Maria Sherapova 6-4, 6-4 to win the 2013 French Open in straight sets, and for the first time since 2002. This was the first time the Women’s number one and number two were paired since 1995.
But it’s Serena’s French that’s captivating fans, who, I guess, expected some kind of screw-up, and they didn’t get that.
Here’s the Twitter reaction to Serena’s French:
HAHAHAHA so LOL! Serena’s French is trending worldwide, not her actual win.

I can tell from Serena’s french that she will be fluent very soon. Having an apartment in Paris & a french “consultant” helps..
