Can you name this French Open winner?

Today’s question: A new champion will be crowned at Roland Garros Stadium in Paris this weekend. What female tennis player during the Open era has won the French Open the most times.

Yesterday’s question and answer: On May 2, 1882, the St. Louis Browns (later renamed the Cardinals in 1900) played their first game in the American Association. George W. McGinnis was the starting pitcher. What was his nickname? The answer is Jumbo. McGinnis stood 5-foot-10 and weighed 197, possibly because he was a glass blower in the offseason. Only 18 years old in 1882, he was out of baseball after just five years likely because of arm trouble. He won 25 games in 1882 for a club that won 37 all year.
