French Open 2020 Day 4: From Chris Evert to Maria Sharapova - the nine women to win multiple Roland Garros titles

On what should have been the fourth day of the 2020 tournament, we look at the female stars who lifted the Suzanne Lenglen Cup more than once

Since women's tennis entered the Open era in 1968, there have been nine players who have won the French Open title on more than one occasion.

Those nine players can lay claim to 33 of the Roland Garros titles in the 52 editions so far, which, coincidentally, is the same number of trophies collected by male multi winners, although the men won the same number with one less player - call it the Rafael Nadal affect.

The WTA Tour is known for its ultra-competitiveness, with many players turning themselves into Grand Slam champions, so to win any major more than once is a fine achievement, let alone Roland Garros - considered tennis' great test of physical and mental endurance.

So, as we make our way through the first week of what would have been the 2020 French Open before it was pushed back to September due to the coronavirus pandemic, above is a photo gallery of all the women to win the title twice or more, in ascending order.
