Third-seeded Elsa Jacquemot beat Alina Charaeva 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 to win the girls’ title at the French Open.

The 17-year-old Jacquemot is the first French girl to win a junior title since Kristina Mladenovic also won at Roland Garros in 2009.

Jacquemot sealed victory on her first match point after a double fault from the unseeded Russian.

“To win Roland Garros as a French player is something crazy. I don’t have the words,” Jacquemot said.

Charaeva’s voice cracked with emotion when she spoke after the match.

“I hope next year I can come back as a professional,” she said.
