No-one can stop Serena 'in that spirit', says coach

Twelve months ago, Williams suffered her worst defeat at a Grand Slam when she was knocked out of the first round in Paris. But, one year on, the 31-year-old has become the oldest women's champion at the French Open in the Open era, having also captured the Wimbledon and US Open crowns.

Paris: Serena Williams is virtually impossible to stop when she displays the ruthless form which saw her defeat Maria Sharapova and claim a second French Open, the American's coach insisted on Saturday.

Frenchman Patrick Mouratoglou described the 31-year-old as an immense champion who is capable of matching the Grand Slam achievements of Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert after claiming her 16th major.

"When she is in that kind of spirit, there is no-one who can stop her," said Mouratoglou after Williams beat Sharapova 6-4, 6-4 to claim her second title in Paris, 11 years after her first.
