Mayar Sherif becomes the first woman representing Egypt to win a Grand Slam match!
@rolandgarros On the men's side, El Sharif was a tough competitor in the 1970s.
@rolandgarros I hope that she survives the patriarchal Islamic society of Egypt and gets huge success in the future. All the best to her 🙏🏻
