Ottawa’s Gaby Dabrowski has become the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam Tennis title as she and her partner Rohan Bopanna, from India, captured the mixed doubles crown at the French Open.

 

The seventh-seeded team rallied to defeat Anna-Lena Groenefeld of Germany and Robert Farah of Colombia in a three set match Thursday.Three Canadian men have won Grand Slam titles, led by Daniel Nestor with eight in men’s doubles and another four in mixed doubles. Sebastian Lareau and Vasek Pospisil have each won a men’s doubles major with an American teammate.

No Canadian tennis player has ever won a Grand Slam singles tournament. The closest are Milos Raonic, who reached the Wimbledon men’s final last year, and Eugenie Bouchard, who played in the women’s title match at Wimbledon in 2014.
